ProAmpac's ( four-sided, tetrahedron-shaped E-Z SnackPak pouch, in partnership with PepsiCo Mexico Foods for the Doritos Icognita brand, has won two industry awards.

The flexible E-Z SnackPak received a Gold Award from The Dow Chemical Company’s 2018 Awards for Packaging Innovation, which recognizes the packaging industry’s top achievements in innovative packaging designs, materials, technologies, and processes. 

In June, the Doritos design with E-Z SnackPak received the 2018 Star Pack and Packaging Award from The Mexican Association of Packaging (AMEE), an annual contest recognizing new materials, designs and products that reflect innovation and creativity. The award was presented to PepsiCo Mexico Foods’ Sabritas packaging and purchasing team and ProAmpac at EXPO PACK Mexico produced by PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.

“The E-Z SnackPak replaces traditional pillow pouches using up to 25 percent less material.  It is easily opened to form a serving tray that is shareable and where users can even pour salsa — both of which are popular in the Mexican snacking culture,” said Alex Jones, senior innovation engineer with ProAmpac.
