The flexible E-Z SnackPak received a Gold Award from The Dow Chemical Company’s 2018 Awards for Packaging Innovation, which recognizes the packaging industry’s top achievements in innovative packaging designs, materials, technologies, and processes.
In June, the Doritos design with E-Z SnackPak received the 2018 Star Pack and Packaging Award from The Mexican Association of Packaging (AMEE), an annual contest recognizing new materials, designs and products that reflect innovation and creativity.
“E-Z SnackPak is a unique format that’s literally changing the shape of flexible packaging,” said Adam Grose, ProAmpac’s chief commercial officer. “PepsiCo Mexico Foods introduced the E-Z SnackPak for Doritos in March.”
“The E-Z SnackPak replaces traditional pillow pouches using up to 25 percent less material. It is easily opened to form a serving tray that is shareable and where users can even pour salsa – both of which are popular in the Mexican snacking culture,” said Alex Jones, senior innovation engineer with ProAmpac.
