It’s the first seamless, closed-loop solution that combines nutritious meals with a flexible pouch, leak-proof seal, custom-designed spout, and direct-connect ENFit® device in one complete enteral feeding system.

“We’re thrilled that our innovative spirit was recognized by the flexible packaging industry,” said Keith Smith, CEO of Vonco. “We worked hard to bring the best, most disruptive product to market; I couldn’t be prouder of the Vonco team.”

The 2022 Flexible Packaging Awards received 325 entries across six categories. EnteraLoc was not only honored with the highest recognition for its ability to disrupt and redefine enteral nutrition but also recognized with an additional four gold awards in the following categories:

Smith continued. “EnteraLoc was designed and developed with insight from a respected nutritionist, and from clinicians, brand owners, and patients. They had one goal in mind: to provide tube-feeders a convenient method of food delivery that is simple, nutritious, safe, less mess, and consumable on-the-go. I believe they succeeded in their mission.”
