“Purition engaged with the materials science experts at ProAmpac to create a recyclable packaging solution for their nutritional powders. This partnership led to the launch of the ProActive Recyclable® paper bag and is further proof that collaborative innovation brings innovative sustainable paper packaging to market,” said Adam Grose, Chief Commercial Officer of ProAmpac.

Purition and ProAmpac have improved the durability characteristics of the ProActive Recyclable® paper pouch by minimizing the overall material without sacrificing the protective characteristics of the product. In addition, the ProActive Recyclable paper bag can easily be recycled into paper streams.

“This unique paper-based technology provides the high oxygen and moisture barrier needed to protect the dry powder. The product also has optimal stiffness for shelf appearance and consumer handling,” says Lynsey Maddison, Senior Product Development Manager for ProAmpac Europe.

ProActive Recyclable® paper pouches are digitally printed by ProAmpac Ultimate Digital allowing Purition to transition smoothly to the new structure with minimal graphic adjustments. “All items are executed as a composite, and the high-quality printing maintains Purition’s minimalist earth-tone palette, ensuring labeling is crisp and clear for consumers,” says Maddison.

“As an environmentally focused brand, Purition wanted to provide consumers with more sustainable packaging. We approached ProAmpac with this challenge and they responded with a new easy-to-recycle paper bag solution. This new format, combined with crisp digitally printed graphics, supports the Purition brand and its promise of sustainability,” says Edward Taylor of Purition.
