US based ePac Flexible Packaging, the innovative frontrunner in digitally printed flexible packaging catering to the food industry, has announced the launch of Certified Child Resistant (CR) Resealable pouches made with Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) materials.
A collaboration between ePac, the Fresh-Lock business unit at Presto Products Co., and Charter Next Generation, the offering is fully certified to comply with the Federal Poison Prevention Act, Title CFR / 16 Part 1700, and ASTM D3475.
ePac is the first company to offer Fresh-Lock's new series of child-resistant zippers incorporated into finished pouches made with Charter Next Generation GreenArrow PCR films.
Designed for regulated markets that require resealable, child-resistant enclosures, ePac’s new offering provides a more sustainable option to conventional packaging and is approved for direct food contact while still delivering the critical performance attributes of a performance sealant film.
Virag Patel, ePac’s COO commented: “The teamwork between Charter Next Gen, Fresh-Lock, and ePac has been phenomenal, and the key to being able to bring this innovation to market. With Presto’s focus on child safety, Charter’s GreenArrow film engineered for sustainability, and ePac’s focus on child-resistant pouches and sustainability, we’re proud to announce its commercial availability.”
