The PrimaPak™ Packaging developed by Clear Lam Packaging, Inc., for Fisher Party Peanuts is a WorldStar 2015 Packaging Award winner in the food category, an honor bestowed by the World Packaging Organization (WPO). WorldStar award winners will be formally recognized at a reception in Milan, Italy on May 19, 2015. Companies from 37 countries entered 264 packaging projects in the international competition. The judging session took place late last year at the WPO’s Board Meeting in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This is the third win for the PrimaPak™ package in a global awards category.
The PrimaPak™ package is the industry’s first-of-its-kind flexible, stackable and reclosable package produced from rollstock on a custom vertical form-fill-seal machine. Lightweight and stackable, the packaging is designed to replace bulky rigid jars, blow-molded containers, injection-molded packages, composite cans, and select stand-up pouches. The finished package resembles a “pop-up” box.
This innovative technology boosts cube utilization by 30 percent or more compared to traditional containers taking up less warehouse space and reducing transportation demands. This translates into truckload and warehouse space savings, reducing fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
