Ampac said their Pull Tab opening device minimises potential spillage for non-carbonated beverages.    

Frank Hofmann, consultant to Ampac from Hofmann Bevpack Consulting, told FoodProductionDaily.com the Pull Tab is opened by tearing and inserting the straw to avoid spillage.  

The company demonstrated the innovation at its stand at packaging trade show Emballage in Paris.

He added the aim was to cover the low cost market for non-carbonated beverages.

The Pull Tab innovation is an alternative beverage pouch format to the traditional straw punch-through pouch that is commonly used.

Other advantages include the ability to utilize high-speed filling lines, use for either hot fill (aseptic) or cold fill, individual printing on the label, and availability of custom pouch shapes and sizes.
