Be-Pack™ is a packaging solution designed to meet consumers’ need for food safety and convenience.

Soignies, Belgium, September 23rd, 2014 – Be-Pack™ is a packaging solution designed to meet consumers’ need for food safety and convenience. Thanks to its unique easy open and reclose feature freshness is also preserved throughout shelf life for future servings. It gives the impression of freshness as if the product has just been packed behind the counter. 
Bemis Be-Pack™ is a sustainable alternative to traditional packaging formats comprising exceptional light weighting and easy disposal.
Be-Pack™ was designed following eco-conception principles. Therefore, Be-Pack™ light weight structure allows for green dot savings through source reduction compared to traditional rigid tray and reclose lidding.
Be-Pack™ is very successful in the Netherlands for applications such as sliced ham, sliced salami, Parma ham… and quickly gaining traction in the rest of Europe as well as for sliced cheese. 
Be-Pack™ supports processors in streamlining their processes thanks to its large operating window (from 135°C up to 180°C) with constant peel force independent of seal temperature, time and pressure.
Be-Pack™ can be flexo and roto printed with up to 10 colours ensuring an outstanding pack presentation and brand recognition which is key for retailers and brand owners. 
Be-Pack™ can also benefit from Paper-Like™ finish giving it an extra artisanal appeal.
With Be-Pack™, Bemis has once again pushed the industry standards and proven that, as a global leader in the extrusion, printing and lamination of flexible packaging materials, we are always a step ahead.

Paper-Like™ The Printing Alternative to Paper Laminate - The Magic Touch

Bemis printing technologies provide the look and feel of paper applied only on film laminates.
Therefore, Paper-Like™ is the best solution for brands which are looking for an economical and highly decorative product presentation as an alternative to paper laminates or for unique product differentiation.
Paper-Like™ offers an Overall Equipment Effectiveness coefficient (OEE) that is the same as a standard film making it possible to maintain the same machine throughput. 
Bemis Paper-Like™ can be applied on a variety of flexible materials, and is suitable for all processing machines: thermoforming, tray lidding, and flow pack.
