Sonoco has expanded its ClearGuard portfolio of flexible packaging to include pouches for liquid or more viscous products.

The expanded product line, which can handle hot fill and retort cooking processes, will be on display at the Global Pouch Forum in Miami from June 14-16.

With growing demand from consumers for transparency, not just with ingredients and labeling, but with a desire to see what they are buying, ClearGuard offers brands a way to satisfy their customers, without sacrificing quality​,” said Pete Gioldasis, director, marketing, Sonoco.

We’re able to deliver both presentation and protection. Our ClearGuard portfolio has already achieved success with applications like trail mix, jerky and snack bars​.

With this latest technical development, we’re now able to expand the portfolio to include structures capable of withstanding more demanding applications, like fitmented pouches that perform in hot fill or retort processing conditions​.”

ClearGuard packaging provides an alternative to aluminum foil or metalized films due to its low oxygen and water vapor transmission rates to protect food and preserve its shelf life.

PromoPeel labeling

The ClearGuard liquid pouch can meet or exceed barrier and shelf-life requirements for a variety of products and can stand up to the demands of the retort process, which involves high pressure and high temperatures.

Also at the conference this year will be Sonoco’s PromoPeel integrated label technology.

PromoPeel labeling allows for precision scoring of an on-pack label via an in-line production process, for application accuracy and eliminates multiple production processing steps.
