The Portco Way

For more than 80 years, and three generations, the Wall family has been at the helm of Portco Packaging. The Portco Way is a relentless pursuit of a ‘better way’. Today, our flexible packaging keeps our customers competitive globally. We’re proud of our commitment to the environment, a passion we share with many of our clients. To us, that environment also extends indoors. Trust, transparency, humor and collaboration characterize our relationships—many stretching back for decades. As luck would have it, that’s another Pacific Northwest kind of thing.

Our Clients
Packaging with Peace of Mind

We are a 3rd generation family run company. We strive to make the highest quality, safest packaging in the most responsible way – for brands we’re really passionate about. We have a wide range of fiercely loyal clients because we stand behind every package we sell. We are, in fact, one of the first West Coast packaging companies to earn SQF level 3 Certification, the highest rating for food safety in our industry. We make multi wall bags, stand up pouches and printed roll stock. We view our packaging as another ingredient – protecting your fresh, frozen, dry and wet goods with the same standards of food safety as you do.

 

Our plants are located on each side of Mt. Adams in the state of Washington. Our packaging appears on store aisles from Milwaukie to Melbourne.

What does a packaging mistake cost?

A mistake or contamination in our industry costs way more than just a reprint of packaging – in ingredients, processing, time, delivery delays and retailer confidence.  One broken link in the food chain affects all others. So it was an easy decision to obtain SQF level 3 certification – the highest level certification a food packaging company can achieve. That’s peace of mind with your product and reputation on the line. It also reflects something else: we sweat the details. There’s only one reason we have studied all 213 pages of the SQF Code for Modules 2 & 13 which cover Food Sector Category 27 related to food packaging, so you don’t have to. 


SQF is recognized by retailers and food service providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system.

 

There are three levels of SQF:

Level 1: Controls fundamental food safety appropriate for low-risk products.

Level 2: HAACP and ISO based food safety program recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative. (GFSI)

Level 3: A comprehensive mastery of safety and quality management systems.
