Kwik Lok is focused on helping the industry transition to more sustainable bag closures, and will feature a variety of solutions in its booth (#2024) to meet the needs of bakery companies around the world including:
- Eco-Lok—a sustainable bag closure made of plant-based polymer NuPlastiQ®, uses up to 20% less fossil fuels in the manufacturing process and remains printable, reusable, and metal detector compatible.
- Fibre-Lok—an environmentally-friendly closure composed entirely of 100% post-consumer recycled paper that offers the same reliability as traditional Kwik Lok products for those looking for a 100% plastic free solution that is home compostable in some markets and recyclable in others.
- Next-generation Closing Machines Featuring Laser-Stitch Technology—which indicates if a bag has been opened while also preventing bags from tearing.
“We remain focused on delivering solutions that are not only innovative, but also focused on sustainability. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all closure that meets the varying sustainability needs of our international customers,” said Don Carrell, CEO, Kwik Lok. “Our team will be available at IBIE to demonstrate our latest innovations and to help guide our current and potential customers in selecting the sustainable closure technology that best meets their business needs and market requirements.”
