Pactiv: "Slide-Rite” closure adopted by Procter & Gamble

Procter & Gamble (P&G, Cincinnati, Ohio / USA; www.pg.com) has introduced the "Slide-Rite” closure from packaging producer Pactiv (Lake Forest, Illinois / USA; www.pactiv.com) on the larger packages of its Fairy dishwashing tablet line. In 2009, P&G launched the dishwashing tabs in a laminated film, stand-up pouch equipped with the Pactiv reclosure system. Pactiv says the system offers high reliability, even if the packaging is frequently opened, and that the tablets are protected against humidity.

Packaging machine manufacturer UVA (Eindhoven / The Netherlands; www.uva-packaging.com) developed an existing vertical form-fill-seal packaging line to incorporate the closure.
