Improving the Identification of Printed Bags in Cartons

Industry Challenge
During the bagging process, it can be difficult to identify the contents of certain printed bag cartons. This has led to mixed-up prints and incorrect labelling of the bagged product.

Idea: Improving the print size and font style on cartons to increase readability – make the text larger and more prominent

Idea: Unique carton colours to Identify different prints. Colour coding minimises the likelihood of errors and easily locates and organises specific bags without the need for reading labels or opening boxes.

Idea: Colour-coded labels for specific print identification. Colour coding provides a visual cue that allows for quick and easy identification of different prints of bags.

Preventing Splitting of Bag Side Seals To Reduce Wastage

Industry Challenge
One common problem in the industry is that wicketed bags tend to tear on the side seal when they are opened using the bagging machine.

Idea: Strengthen the side seal. Collaborate with the manufacturing team to enhance the strength of the bag’s side seals.

Idea: Include Side Slits during production- Intentionally create a small cut or slit in a bag to prevent a rip from spreading further; it is a deliberate incision to control or halt the tear’s progression.


Tear Stopper -A deliberate cut made in the side seal during production strengthens the bag and stops it from tearing further.

By incorporating this innovation, the side seal of the bag becomes reinforced, and further tearing is prevented.

A need to improve the handling & transport of packaged ice for consumers

Idea: Handles attached or incorporated into the bag

UPACs research & development team, in collaboration with ice manufacturers, would design and develop a bag handle style to improve the handling & transport of packaged ice for consumers

Benefits: Handles on ice bags offer several benefits:

– Convenience: Handles make carrying and transporting ice bags easier. They provide a comfortable grip and prevent the bag from slipping. 

– Easy transportation: Handles make it more convenient to carry bags of ice, especially when they are heavy or when a consumer needs to carry multiple bags at once.

– Overall, handles on bags of ice improve convenience, safety, and hygiene. They make transporting, storing, and using ice easier, reducing the risk of accidents and enhancing the overall user experience.
