Bemis launches clear, recyclable standup pouch packaging

NEENAH, Wisconsin, June 5, 2018 - Bemis Company, Inc. recently launched its latest innovation, Encore™ ultra-clear recyclable film. The technology combines readily recyclable material with shelf-appealing transparency, helping CPGs attract today’s consumers while achieving the sustainability goals of their businesses.

“CPGs can feel confident with Encore™ ultra-clear recyclable film; it can provide the clarity and transparency shoppers demand, and still run on most standard existing manufacturing equipment,” explains John Wilson, Market Manager. In comparison with prior offerings, this new Bemis technology provides the advantages of a standard standup pouch, with the added benefit of improved recyclability. It can also incorporate convenience features, such as press-to-close zippers.

Encore™ ultra-clear recyclable film is made of polyethylene, which was designed to be recycled through existing How2Recycle store drop-offs. This technology offers benefits of low haze, good stiffness, and high gloss. Encore™ ultra-clear recyclable film is currently available across multiple markets, including dish detergent pods, pet food and treats, confection items and more.
