Flexible packaging producer Ampac has announced the addition of the new Pull Tab beverage pouch, which serves as an alternative format to the traditional straw punch-through beverage pouch commonly used in the beverage market.
According to the company, the Pull Tab experience provides hygienic protection of the straw hole with a tear away Pull Tab label. The straw size, which is customized, is inserted into the hole allowing the beverage to be consumed.
Benefits of the new hygienic solution include the ability to use filling lines, use for either hot fill or cold fill, individual printing on the Pull Tab label and availability of custom pouch shapes and sizes.
Ampac market manager for food Millie Nuno commenting on the development said: "The Pull Tab innovation is great for companies that want differentiation on the shelf and enhanced package functionality to provide a positive consumer experience."
Diversified global packaging company Ampac has 14 manufacturing centers in North America, Europe and Asia.
