Nosco Honored in 2023 FPA Awards

Have you heard the news? Nosco was recently honored by the Flexible Packaging Association for our work with two industry-leading brands!

Steve Krueger (FlexPack Growth Manager) and Craig Curran (President) accepted the awards earlier this week for:

  • MegaFood – Gold Award for Expanding the Use of FlexPack
  • Apex Protein Snacks – Silver Award for Printing

Here’s a look at the winning entry work:

  • MegaFood needed a child-resistant, senior-friendly flexible pouch for their Women’s Ensemble Preconception Daily Multipack product line. Due to the product’s high iron content, the brand previously packaged its product in child-resistant cartons, but recently switched to flexible pouches to save on costs. Through digital printing on the HP Indigo 20000 digital press, Nosco was able to save the brand more than half the cost of its previous packaging type.
  • In 2021, Apex was collaborating with another supplier, running this film using traditional plate-based printing. Due to the brand’s high number of SKUs, they constantly faced ever-increasing plate charges that would often take 6-8 weeks to switch over. At the time, the brand only had a handful of SKUs but planned to continue introducing new flavors and designs. Because of this, Apex needed a quicker turn, plate free print solution. Nosco’s ability to help with Apex’s pouches while maintaining consistent colors further allowed a growing print partnership.
