“Sustainability is more than a fad. It is a consumer demand that brands need to not only recognize but also implement,” said Brad Hansen, president of Presto Specialty Products, a business unit of Reynolds Consumer Products. “This year at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, we will present the multiple facets of sustainability – from new products and consumer trends to messaging strategies.”  


Making its PACK EXPO debut, the Fresh-Lock® 8000 series was developed to provide brands with a line of sustainable closures for flexible packaging. The line features long-time benefits of Fresh-Lock® closures, including ability to maintain freshness, reduce food waste, and provide added convenience for consumers, while also supporting a circular economy through more sustainable solution for CPGs.

The persona “Sustainable Stacy” will take center stage in 2019 alongside new and returning faces from the 2018 show.
