WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2009) - Winpak (TSX:WPK) is pleased to announce that it has concluded an agreement, effective April 1, 2009, whereby it will have the exclusive rights to use Reynolds Packaging LLC formulations and Drug Master File (DMF) specifications to produce packaging materials used in the pharmaceutical and health care industries.
