ProAmpac announced the launch of its ProActive Recyclable FiberCool curbside recyclable insulated bag for the food and grocery delivery market and the growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions.

“The paper bag has not had much innovation over the past few decades; ProAmpac set out to change that,” says Chad Murdock, president of ProAmpac’s fiber division. “FiberCool is a pioneering one-piece design that enhances insulation properties, eliminates assembly time, saves storage space, and reduces materials and costs. Plus, it has been pre-qualified for curbside recyclability.”

“When subjected to a rigorous testing protocol, depending on the products, FiberCool outperforms a standard paper bag by demonstrating temperature retention by as much as 30%,” states Ray Recchia, global innovation manager of sustainable paper packaging for ProAmpac. “This improved thermal performance reduces food spoilage and waste, while also reducing packaging weight compared to traditional multi-part thermal bag packaging.”
