Shrink Wrap Packaging Experts - We Do It Right!


Ontario Craft Breweries Packaging Standards

LCBO Packaging Regulations Logo
Ontario Craft Breweries Logo
According to new LCBO legislation, all beer trays must be shrink-wrapped in a very specific manner. The film must be recyclable, of a certain thickness, and applied so as to avoid contaminate entry and for security purposes. The LCBO Product Packaging Standards and Chemical Guidelines can be found here.

The new legislation poses a problem, especially for local micro-breweries with less resources, as the process of choosing, installing and servicing a shrink packaging machine requires a certain expertise. Impak Packaging Systems Inc. is a company that has more than 30 years of experience in the packaging realm. We are constantly in the pursuit of the perfect package, and we have succeeded at reaching this goal with many well known companies, and even some fellow Ontario Craft Breweries: Big Rig Brewery, Sawdust Brewery, Sleeping Giant Brewery, as well as  Solo Cup, Starbucks, Canadian Tire and Quaker.


What may seem mundane to you—optimal plastic film thickness, perfect seal wire temperature, exact conveyor speed—is exactly what we pride ourselves in doing well. We can, and will, ensure that your package meets all the above requirements, while maximizing efficiency and minimizing cost. We have the capability of handling production demands small and large, from microbreweries producing small batches, to large breweries producing thousands of bottles a day.

 We offer new and used packaging machines, for rent and for purchase, and we will recommend one that suits your application best. We are the leading distributors of Cryovac shrink films in Canada. We will also recommend a high-quality shrink film and make the proper adjustments to the machine to ensure peak performance.
