Exopack RAVE™ Family of Bags

With large-format bags (containing >10 lbs. of packaged product), retailers want less damage, consumers want more convenience, and packaged goods companies want lower overall cost.

Exopack has risen to these challenges with their RAVE™ line of premade bags. These robust bags can be printed with up to 10 colors for appealing consumer graphics. A variety of substrate choices delivers a wide range of product attributes. This, in conjunction with before- and after-market support delivers packaging that is easy to use.
