Liquibox wins three FPA Awards for Packaging Film Innovations

March 14, 2018

Liqui-Box, a world leader in flexible liquid packaging solutions, is the recipient of three 2018 FPA Awards for liquid food and beverage packaging solutions for vertical form fill and seal applications. The awards were given to the company for the development of ApexAsept, EcoAsept, and FlexFlow, innovative pouch packaging films that deliver improved quality, performance and cost saving benefit.

Greg Gard, Senior Vice president of Research and Development, who lead the team on these product innovations stated, “We are truly honored to be recognized by the FPA for our flexible packaging innovations. At Liqui-Box, our team constantly strives toward making better products. We approach each new challenge through the lens of innovation and sustainability and this recognition of our hard work is not only valued, but encourages us to keep paving the way forward.”

Receiving the Silver FPA Award for Technical Innovation was the company’s ApexAsept pouch. ApexAsept was designed to offer new higher-performance sealant layers and increased resistance to delamination. The newly developed film was created by the Liqui-Box team in order to make more robust packages and reduce leakers in the field in comparison to what has been available in the market previously.

The Silver FPA Award for Sustainability was given to the company’s aseptic pouch film, EcoAsept. This film was designed specifically for the dairy industry and created to offer customers a happy medium between lower-cost non-aseptic films and the higher-cost aseptic adhesive laminates.  The EcoAsept pouch film is an innovative design that offers cost savings while still delivering top grade oxygen barriers for the long shelf life of aseptic products.

FlexFlow, also received a Silver FPA Award for Sustainability and is typically used in the company’s smaller 8 to 32oz pouch offerings. The film was developed internally and was reformulated by the Liqui-Box team to protect against leaking seals.

These new innovations in film development are just a few examples of how Liqui-Box continues to implement a vision of being the leader in liquid packaging systems and solutions around the world.
