Sixty years later, we are the largest paper-based, flexible foodservice packaging company in North America with five manufacturing plants spread across the United States. Our commitment to innovation has produced 17 patents and multiple national and international packaging awards.

Innovation is critical in today’s market as customers’ needs and expectations for foodservice packaging have changed. Our engineering experience, research knowledge, graphics capabilities and passion for innovation make us the best choice to develop flexible packaging solutions that exceed your expectations.


Practical packaging means less waste, fewer raw materials and greater savings on manufacturing, transportation and storage. Flexible foodservice packaging is the most practical, cost-effective choice for today’s market and the future.

Consumers and operators want practical packaging alternatives to rigid plastic and paperboard. Our process printing capabilities, choices of barrier laminations and window designs provide flexible packaging solutions that are more practical and innovative.
