Lévis, QC—IPL, a leading producer of injected plastic packaging for the North American market announces a licensing agreement for an innovative packaging solution from Arta Plast AB of Sweden, who have developed 1-Seal technology, granting the North American license to IPL.

The 1-Seal technology is a packaging solution that simplifies the production process for food processors, while responding to increasing demand from consumers for an environmentally-friendly yet premium packaging solution.

The 1-Seal has been designed to optimize production efficiency by eliminating the need for a film seal, thus removing management of film-seal inventory, waste, and roll equipment.

The 1-Seal lid is applied to the container, than sealed, creating an air-tight and water-tight seal around the container to maintain product freshness.3

Available with high-definition In-Mold Label (IML) decoration covering the entire surface of the lid for added graphics appeal, 1-Seal, from a consumer’s perspective, offers a tamper-evident packaging solution that is easy and safe to open due to a single operation needed to open the package, eliminating the need to remove a lid and film-seal.

Its user-friendly, re-sealable closure system provides a secure, airtight seal, ensuring the freshness of products both at the store and at home. Additionally, the containers are heat tolerant and microwavable.

Given that the lid, IML label, and container are made from polypropylene (PP), the whole packaging solution is 100 pert cent recyclable for added sustainability.

“It’s rare to have a packaging solution that is beneficial to both food processors and consumers. Removing film seal equipment and management from the production line answers a concern that many food processors have today. Additionally, consumers benefit from the safety and ease of use, while being environmentally conscious,” says IPL product manager Joel Sergerie.

IPL Inc. is a leading North American producer of injection molded plastic products. Founded in 1939, it employs about 900 people and manufactures across its three plants in Saint-Damien, Quebec, in Edmundston, New Brunswick and in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
