CINCINNATI—Ampac, a global leader in flexible packaging, has announced the addition of its new Pull Tab beverage pouch providing an alternative to the traditional straw punch-through beverage pouch that is commonly used in the beverage market.

Combining innovative packaging with technology, Ampac says its innovative produce allows beverage makers to provide differentiation and enhanced shelf appeal.

According to Ampac, its Pull Tab provides hygienic protection of the straw hole with a tear away Pull Tab label. The customized straw size is inserted into the hole and the beverage is enjoyed.

Additional advantages of this hygienic beverage solution include the ability to utilize high-speed filling lines, use for either hot fill (aseptic) or cold fill, individual printing on the Pull Tab label, and availability of custom pouch shapes and sizes.

Ampac’s market manager for food Millie Nuno says: “The Pull Tab innovation is great for companies that want differentiation on the shelf and enhanced package functionality to provide a positive consumer experience.”

Ampac is a diversified global packaging company with 14 manufacturing centers in North America, Europe and Asia. For more information, visit the company website at www.ampaconline.com.
