ProAmpac’s Thought Leadership
Sal Pellingra, vice president of global package design, applications and business development, will present Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 8:30 am as part of the 2022 Cold Pressure Council Annual Conference, in conjunction with PACK EXPO. The conference is located within McCormick place, room W-192B.

In addition, Nathan Klettlinger will review the implications of existing fresh food to-go packaging in the market and discuss how flexible packaging and material changes can better support sustainability goals and the circular economy. This presentation, open to all Pack Expo attendees, is entitled Fresh Food To-Go and the Circular Economy and will be held Wednesday, October 26 at noon; Innovation Stage 1 (N4560).

Available for demonstration at Pack Expo is MAKR by DASL; this tool allows users to choose almost any flexible packaging format ProAmpac produces. The user can custom design their package employing features such as package dimensions, closures, handles and even the shape of the pouch. Finally, users can add graphics and submit an order for their completed package design online.  ProAmpac’s DASL team will ensure all details are correct, finalize the order, and create and ship the custom prototype directly to the requester.

“MAKR has expanded our collaborative resources and makes it easier for customers to get products from design to market in record time. We’ve had a great response from our customers and continue to build out MAKR to make it easier for customers to bring new packaging ideas to commercial reality,” states Nicole Cocuzzi, Collaboration and Innovation Center manager.
