West Bridgewater, Mass., March 15, 2019 – Cheer Pack North America (CPNA) is pleased to announce the launch of its new CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap, which is available for use on most CHEER PACK® flexible packaging products. Responding to client feedback as well as food industry market research, CPNA developed the CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap to address the need for a flexible spouted pouch cap that appeals to consumers who are in their tweens (8 to 12 years of age) and older.
The appearance and ‘easy grip’ feature of the octagonal-shaped CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap differentiates it from the CHEER PACK® traditional CHEERClassic™ Cap, which was formerly known as the ‘Baby Cap’. Because most baby food that’s marketed in flexible spouted packaging includes a rounded cap, many tween-aged and older consumers have reported they did not want to consume a product in packaging that resembles a flexible pouch for baby food. Additionally, teenage and adult consumers are more likely to purchase “aged-up” products in spouted pouches with caps that have a unique or more ‘grown-up’ shape.
One category that is a natural fit for the Bevels™ cap is energy and nutrition products, which are geared toward active consumers, a market that continues to present significant growth opportunity. Other exciting spouted pouch food and non-food applications include condiments, toppings, sauces, refrigerated yogurts, hand lotions, and skin care. The CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap is also available in the same colors as CPNA’s current standard line of injection-molded spouted pouch caps – green, purple, yellow, blue, red, white, and orange.
The CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap was developed in the CHEER PACK® Innovation Center (CPIC), a research and development incubator that enhances the speed-to-market of a client’s flexible packaging innovation ideas. The CPIC also functions as an in-house equipment training support center. It’s designed to provide testing of films, resins, and additives for designing and manufacturing flexible pouches, fitments, and caps for food and non-food products. The center’s equipment includes test filling machines, an SLA machine for rapid 3D prototyping, a pouch film sealer, and an injection-molding machine.
“In the CPIC, our engineers can rapidly develop flexible pouch, fitment, and cap prototypes for customers that can be used as samples to demonstrate a product’s features and functions prior to mass-producing the item,” said Cheer Pack N.A. President Steve Gosling. “Since its inception, the work that our team has done in the CPIC has produced the innovative CHEERPlus™ Bevels™ cap, which we are very proud to be launching, as well as other patented flexible pouch solutions.”
