Manufacturer: Novolex, novolex.com
Description: The pilferage-resistant bag features a 75% product view through a clear-windowed bag, which compares to the traditional 15–20% product view. This bag can keep bread fresher longer than a traditional paper bag, and it allows for a printable area on the paper substrate, unlike a fully poly-lined bag. From a sustainability standpoint, the unit bag weight is approximately 50% less than a traditional windowed bread bag, allowing for reduced case weight, thus providing a freight advantage.
BB Royal™ Organic Oil, 1 liter
Manufacturer: Paharpur 3P, paharpur3p.com
Description: Oils and fats contain a higher amount of saturated fats, cholesterol, and trans fat and are more prone to hydrolytic rancidity. Therefore, the oil needs to be protected from moisture and oxygen with high-barrier packaging material. Proper packaging is also essential for protecting the nutritional value of the product and preserving the aroma. While designing the package, we considered technical aspects to ensure leakage, dart, and puncture resistance, as well as the physical appearance by giving this pouch a unique shape.

Ultra Soft Touch Pack for Spectrum Flaxseed
Manufacturer: Uflex Limited, flexfilm.com
Description: Sensory or haptic experiences are dominant in how we interact and are even more important when making our buying decisions. This packaging has a “soft touch” coating, which creates a warm, soft surface that, in turn, creates assurance and pushes undecided consumers to select a particular brand of product. All of this happens subconsciously simply by “feeling good in the hand.” Conventional soft touch has been known for being easily scratched or marred. However, this has been addressed by our proprietary coating, resulting in a surface that is hard and wear-resistant while keeping the same effect.
Manufacturer: Liquibox, liquibox.com
Description: Liquibox incorporates the barrier properties of polyester with a film that protects and enhances the taste profile for water. Packaging for water has proven to be a technical challenge. For long-term storage, water is sterilized with ozone. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer and can cause the film to oxidize and produce off-tastes. PuraFilm has novel ingredients that are not susceptible to oxidation and provides a flexible water package with a superior taste profile.
