VOLPAK: 2019 HAS BEEN A KEY YEAR

It isn’t simply a trend, the consumers are asking for more sustainable solutions and by December 31, 2030 all plastic packaging in the European Union will have to be made of recyclable or compostable material. At the same time, the collection and recycling of plastic waste will have to reach levels on par with other packaging materials. Pouches are one of the fastest-growing packaging segments with an exponential increase of its use in established markets – such as snacks in the USA – as well as in emerging countries. This poses new challenges to sustainability, especially for the packaging material, which will have to evolve further to transform itself into a low impact material. Other parts of the production chain as well will have to change and become more sustainable as well: for instance, reduce energy consumption at manufacturing and transportation by adopting increasingly more compact packages, which uses then less resources and allow more product to be transported in the same load. Volpak is ready to meet these challenges.2019 has been an important year for the company also as it has consolidated its market position as one the leading pouching companies worldwide. Its SC+ is a breakthrough in the industry with 400 ppm – speeds never seen in the industry. It was developed by Volpak’s engineering team in cooperation with Coesia’s central R&D department. SC+ is suited for almost any industry from dairy to confectionery, especially for the high-speed needs of the market. The company has also expanded the platform of the intermittent pouching, adding recyclable ready features to the SI intermittent pouching machines as to the Enflex range, Enflex being the robust entry-level pouching machine of Volpak’s portfolio.
