Americas: Bimbosan’s baby food packaging has 40% bio-based material, ProAmpac

Flexible packaging company ProAmpac is producing its first ProActive renewable products for the baby food market with Bimbosan’s newest premium baby formula, cereal supplements and paps.

The flat-bottom form fill sealed bag, which utilizes 65% bio-based resin in the sealant layer, results in the total package being comprised of over 40% bio-based material.

The cultivation of bio-resins utilizes carbon dioxide and released oxygen to give bioplastic a negative carbon footprint.

“By reformulating and optimizing the polyethylene sealant layer, we were able to reduce the weight of the final packaging by 10%,” states Manuel Jaggi, product development and innovation manager for ProAmpac.

“Adding to the sustainable design of the package, it is foil-free while still offering excellent barrier to protect from light, moisture, oxygen and mineral oils that would alter or even rot the sensitive powder inside.”
