    Fresh ideas for cheese, dairy & yogurt packaging

    Everything is better with cheese—extra cheese please! Outsiders may think the fresh dairy, cheese and yogurt industry is all cute cows and rainbows, but you know it’s a competitive world of shrinking shelf space, shifting consumer trends and razor-thin margins. Companies need to be smart and nimble to succeed, updating legacy brands and product packaging to appeal to new audiences, as well as introducing the on-the-go, resealable, single-serving and shareable packaging today’s consumers’ demand.

    APC’s Chili, NY Center of Excellence offers co-extrusion laminating and coating equipment, along with adhesive laminating and HPE Flexo™, perfectly suited for efficiently producing high quality packaging for shredded, sliced and block cheese and other dairy products. From ideation, prototyping and production to printing and shelf- and display-ready options, we have the industry-specific knowledge and experience you need to succeed.
