Quality and Innovation

The company’s products are manufactured only from strictly selected suppliers, whose raw materials meet the requirements of the European Union directives and normative documents of the Republic of Lithuania. We are constantly investing in equipment manufactured by world leaders and implementing innovative solutions that ensure our competitiveness in the market. To ensure high quality packaging for our customers, we perform the necessary laboratory tests, and review and improve our production processes. Quality control helps to ensure that only quality products would be supply on the market.

The quality of the produce is also confirmed by certificates issued by international associations, which ensure that the packaging meets all the highest European requirements for food contact materials. 

In 2020 we have 6 production lines: 3 lines for Bag-in-Box packaging, other 3 lines for vacuum bags and Doy-Pack stand-alone packaging.

Bag-In-Box packaging production line

In the summer of 2018, we added an innovative and powerful „Maverick Dream Machine“ production line for Bag-In-Box packaging, incorporating state-of-the-art technology to deliver extremely high efficiency, product quality and a flexible manufacturing process.

Doy-Pack production line

At the end of 2019, we purchased new equipment to produce Doy-Pack packaging. New equipment allows us to produce Pocket ZIP pouches with a special closure that opens on the side of the pouch (most standard ZIP pouches open upwards). We can also produce bags with rounded corners and smaller size bags. Minimum bag width 80 mm.

Vacuum bags production line

In the spring of 2019, we purchased new equipment for vacuum bags. New equipment provides greater efficiency and has a reliable quality tracking system.

Thanks to this equipment we can produce large bags up to 1200 mm wide and up to 3000 mm long. Wider vacuum bags are suitable for transporting, storing consumer goods, household goods, clothing, food or liquids.

Sertificates

Good manufacturing practice. By the Good Manufacturing Practice certificate No. 15-01, AZ-Pack, JCS confirms that it manufactures plastic packaging, products made of plastic materials, intended for the packaging of goods: plastic bags, disposable dishes suitable for contact with food, following the requirements of the European Parliament and Council Regulation EC (No. 2023/2006), the Hygiene Standard of Lithuania HN 16: 2011, and the Good Manufacturing Practice Rules for the Materials and Products Suitable for Contact with Food (Lithuanian Packaging Association, 2007). The GMP quality system is intended to ensure that factors able to affect the product quality were under control, and that such control was directed towards the reduction and elimination of the negative quality aspects, and prevention thereof.

Paying considerable attention to packaging that would meet expectations, we invest into the research of manufactured and sold packaging, which allows us to justify the key packaging quality indicators, as the top quality of our products is what matters the most. Today we are happy that our company is a member of Normpack, the Swedish trade and industry association, uniting more than 200 members representing their activities in different production steps, and products in contact with food. Thanks to the research done by the Swedish-based association, compliance with the quality and safety requirements for raw materials used in the international market and final production is ensured. The quality of AZ-Pack’s production is also justified by the certificates issued by this association, ensuring that the offered production is in compliance with all the highest standards applicable in Europe for the materials used in contact with food, so, consumers choosing a product, a package of which is certified by the Normpack association, can be sure that the package is safe and can be in contact with food, without any negative impact on both the food product and human health.

CEN Standard EN 134282004 defines the packaging assessment procedure in order to ensure that the weight and (or) volume of the material comprising of the packaging is minimum, but sufficient to ensure:

  • the packaging production process;
  • the packaging functionality throughout the whole supply and usage chain: product prepackaging, logistics, warehousing, sales, unpacking;
  • safety and hygiene, in terms of both the product and the consumer;
  • the acceptability of the packaged product to the consumer.

This standard is based on the critical area that can be achieved by reducing the amount of material used. If the substance were further reduced, it would not meet one of the criteria listed. If no critical area is reached, the amount of material used should be further reduced.

Since 2013  company belongs to the Scandinavian Association of Norwegian-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce.
