A recent collaboration between ORICS, a designer and manufacturer of high-speed packaging equipment and Spartech Packaging Technologies, a business segment of Spartech Corporation, has resulted in a turnkey solution for food brands seeking a comprehensive single-source option for food packaging.
A new option for food brands in the North American market, the 1-Seal lidding technology is a durable, sustainable, re-sealable packaging solution. The polypropylene label-lid combo serves dual purposes; capping and sealing rigid plastic containers in one step and eliminating the need for foil or film membranes in the sealing process. The 1-Seal lid is heat-tolerant, microwavable, freezer-to-microwave ready and recyclable in streams that collect polypropylene.
The 1-Seal technology was awarded the 2012 SPI International Plastics Design Competition Packaging Award and is featured in Packaging World’s 34 Best Packaging Designs of 2012.
Jeffrey Best, Director of Marketing for Spartech Packaging Technologies, believes ORICS’ reputation as an innovator and trusted leader in automated packaging solutions will be an added value to any food brand looking to transition to using 1-Seal technology.
Best stated, “I have worked with ORICS for many years and during this time they have consistently incorporated new packaging technologies and materials into their production capabilities. ORICS is an innovator and has been recognized by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) for their efforts. When Spartech decided to commercialize the 1-Seal technology, I contacted ORICS because I was sure that they would want to promote this technology within their portfolio of packaging production capabilities.”
Through this partnership, customers can be assured that both equipment and packaging will work in harmony.
