“Modern Marvels” is a documentary television series that premiered on Jan. 1, 1995 on the History Channel. The program focuses on how technologies affect and are used in today's society.
Flexible Packaging asked Sealed Air’s director of corporate communications, Ken Aurichio, about the experience and his takeway. “We are dedicated to consistently delivering new ideas and products to our customers, and it is nice to be recognized as such being that we were the only company on the program recognized for innovations in protective and fresh food packaging.”
Aurichio knows the experience was worth it. “We hope this episode will go a long way in demonstrating the value packaging brings to our customers, consumers and the world at large," he says. "Many of our employees are big fans of the show and there was a lot of pride and excitement in participating in the production of one of the episode. Most of us never realized the amount of work that goes into filming a television show."
