TEFEN, Israel, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- StePac, a wholly owned subsidiary of UK-based Johnson Matthey PLC UK, unveiled a new logo for its Xtend bulk and Xgo retail modified atmosphere/modified humidity (MA/MH) packaging solutions.
The new logo will clearly and colorfully distinguish the Xtend and Xgo packaging brands. StePac's packaging solutions reduce weight loss, slow the respiration and aging processes and inhibit microbial decay of fresh fruits and vegetables. They thereby preserve the freshness, allow for longer storage and shelf life and facilitate greater shipping/transporting distances.
The logo's bright green shield-like shape represents the underlying advantages of Xtend and Xgo: protecting and preserving freshness, firmness and flavor. The diagonal stripes and the purple leaves illustrate wrapping fresh produce.
StePac's Technical Development Manager, Gary Ward, PhD, notes, "We believe this eye-catching image will better display and differentiate our packaging solutions. It will be easily identifiable by stakeholders receiving produce in our packaging." The Xtend and Xgo products, Ward says, "not only ensure freshness, as the tagline indicates, but extend season and expand the market by giving producers the capability to transport greater distances without meaningful degradation in quality."
The new logo will be used across StePac's Xtend bulk packaging product range of preformed carton liners, films for flow packing bulk produce, bin liners and pallet shrouds and the Xgo retail packaging solutions of preformed bags and roll stock for automated packing.
Founded in 1992, StePac is a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of high-quality, precision engineered modified atmosphere and modified humidity fresh produce packaging. In May 2015, StePac was acquired by Johnson Matthey Group, a global leader in sustainability technologies.
