AFC & Policarta Announce Creation of New Business Unit, ChefPack, LLC

June 3, 2016

Advanced Flexible Composites, Inc. (AFC) is proud to reintroduce Chef Pack® into the Food Market as the revolutionary choice for bake-in-bag technology. The Chef Pack® bag is manufactured from a 100% breathable material, which allows the release of moisture during the cooking process while the bag remains sealed. This unique quality allows the possibility for cooking Gluten-Free products alongside non Gluten-Free products without the risk of contamination.

Chef Pack® is a USA based company headquartered in Lake in the Hills, IL, operating under the name ChefPack, LLC. Our cooking platform has gone through extensive R&D to improve its functionality, and capabilities. One significant improvement made is the ability to cook from both frozen and/or slacked. Chef Pack® is a 100% biodegradable and recyclable solution, offering PFOA free material, to make our product truly sustainable

Kevin Dunlea, Global Sales Manager for AFC’s Food Products Group, commented, “The creation of ChefPack, LLC forms a strategic partnership between AFC and Policarta. Our partnership was formed due to the growing demand for our versatile packaging.  Moving our headquarters to the USA has allowed improved support, and service to our customers.  Our bake-in-the-bag technology has enhanced product offerings in retail, foodservice, convenience stores, and Quick-Service Restaurants.  Our Chef Pack® packaging can be used in microwaves, accelerated cook, combi, and convection ovens.”
