Everybody loves the smell of fresh bread or the feeling of a perfectly crispy bread crust. Packaging is key when it comes to delivering baked goods to customers in perfect condition. Amerplast has years of experience in manufacturing the highest quality packaging for baked goods and today, we are one of the biggest bread bag converters in Europe. Bakeries choose our packaging thanks to our high-quality films, excellent printing quality and special features like campaign codes and recloseable solutions. All of our bakery packaging products are manufactured with the highest hygiene standards in a factory certified to the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials.

Our bread packaging customers include the leading bakeries in Scandinavia and Central Europe. While most of our products are tailored according to our customers’ needs, we do have standard-sized stock products ready for customers seeking very quick delivery times.

Market trends

 

  • Every day, the market is demanding more customised products and the product life cycles are getting shorter. The accelerating speed in which the trends and markets are changing means shorter times to market for the products and more pressure for the whole supply chain. For this reason we encourage our customers to think more about the product as a marriage between the packed product and the packaging.
  • According to the European Union plastics strategy, all plastic packaging should be recyclable or reusable by 2030. Even before then, the increasingly demanding recycling targets on a European level (from the current 22.5% to 50% by 2025) and more efficient Extended Producer Responsibility schemes across Europe create requirements and pressure to increase the recyclability of packaging.

 

 

  • Consumers are looking for wholesome products that are high in protein and fiber, and packed in visually attractive and sustainable packaging.
  • Food is one of the biggest accelerators of climate change and there are a great deal of solutions for reducing food waste to be found from the packaging industry. In the near future, people are looking for longer sell by dates, suitable packaging sizes and recloseable solutions that keep the food products fresher for longer.

Bread bags

 

Our polypropylene and polyethylene bags are thin-wall products, offering excellent mechanical strength and performance in the freezer, displaying products to their best advantage – thanks to their crystal-clear transparency and good quality printing. The excellent resistance to high temperatures means that our bags can be sterilised easily as well, eliminating the need to use additional preservatives. Micro-perforation allows goods to be packed hot, guaranteeing a crispy crust.

 

All of our bags are suitable for manual, semi-automatic, and automatic packaging lines. Manufactured specifically for different packaging machines, they help you enhance the overall cost-effectiveness of your packaging process.

Laminates

 

Where a laminated film is preferred, as is often the case with frozen or pre-baked goods, we combine thin materials with excellent printing quality – to give you attractive, high-quality surfaces and excellent protection against wear and tear and chemical damage.

 

Amerplast is an expert in lamination. We produce multilayer laminated films for a range of product applications using a solvent-free process and high-quality adhesives. Our product development know-how covers the entire lamination process. Our lamination expertise gives packaging very attractive visuals, high-quality surfaces, and excellent protection against wear and tear and chemical damage. We can process a wide range of materials such as polypropylene, polyethylene, EVOH, PET or paper.

Laminated films offer our customers not only the required protection for products, but also attractive visuals with different textures and visual effects. For example, our matt and paper laminates provide you with a way of creating an earthy feeling for your packaging or to create a totally different image with metallic effects. Whatever the desired image for your product and brand, we can provide you with the solutions.

 

Amerplast’s focus in the development of laminates is exclusively on the recyclable solutions. The future of plastic packaging is in recyclability, enabling the transition to the circular economy of plastics. Sustainability is at the core of Amerplast’s operations and strategy, and our ambition is to be at the forefront of the development of the most sustainable flexible packaging solutions. Recyclability is the key when we strive to make the transition towards a circular economy and an efficient recycling of plastic packaging.
