Sustainable, convenient food storage

Consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions. To address these concerns, ITW’s Zip-Pak® commissioned research to assess their innovative packaging. The results show significantly lower energy consumption, solid waste generation, and greenhouse gas emissions for resealable, zippered flexible pouches as compared to rigid tub or bag-in-a box packages. And the company continues to improve the design with better package-to-product ratios and enhanced seal strength zipper technology.

Another green advantage of the zipper package is reduced spoilage: Zip-Pak pouches limit the food product’s exposure to oxygen and other contaminants, which preserves freshness. The DoubleZip™ has two sets of interlocking profiles ergonomically designed to guide consumers’ fingers, ensuring complete closure. Today’s consumers and businesses are more conscious of the environmental impact of their food choices. ITW Zip-Pak packaging innovations satisfy the desire for a smaller footprint and reliable convenience.
