MANTENO, IL, USA—In early October, Zip-Pak announced the availability of its new EZ Open Strip for food-service packages.

The mfr. adds the closure is ideal for single-use product packages such as produce and frozen foods.
Says Robert Hogan, director of sales and marketing at Zip-Pak, "In the fast-paced food-service industry, chefs and food preparation staff expect simple yet effective convenience products that will maximize efficiencies.

[The closure] is available on pre-made wicketed bags and can be applied to a three-side-sealed package cost-effectively on the Pacmac 9500Z vertical form-fill-seal machine," adds the co.
