Sealed Air’s Food Care Division received Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards for two packaging innovations at the Flexible Packaging Association’s 59th annual Achievement Awards and Innovation Showcase.
In the Retail category, the Cryovac Darfresh on Tray received the Highest Achievement award. In the Technical Innovation and also in the Sustainability categories, the Cryovac Freshness Plus won Gold awards.
“We are honored to be recognized as a leader in innovation and sustainability as we continue creating new solutions and products to meet our customers’ demands for freshness, quality and appeal,” says Sean Brady, director of marketing for Sealed Air Food Care. “The Cryovac technology behind both Darfresh on Tray and Freshness Plus is an excellent example of packaging designed with the latest consumer driven food trends in mind.”
Combining a revolutionary pre-made tray system with versatile vacuum skin, Darfresh on Tray extends product shelf-life, reducing food waste. This packaging innovation eliminates film scrap to offer a more environmentally friendly alternative, using 40 percent less material than other available tray skin offerings.
The Freshness Plus odor-eliminating materials from Sealed Air’s Cryovac brand helps extend shelf life and reduce shrink by protecting foods’ aroma profile. The unique active packaging technologies pull odors away from the food to maximize product flavor, color and quality, while eliminating and reducing the need for additives or preservatives.
Since 1956, the Flexible Packaging Association has showcased the industry’s innovation and the advances that have changed packaging. The FPA Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards competition is among the most respected in the industry, recognizing the top innovators of new technologies, processes, printing techniques, and sustainability of flexible packaging.
Awards were presented during the 2015 Welcome and FPA Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Dinner, March 3 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Fla. The dinner was held in conjunction with the 2015 FPA Annual Meeting (March 3-5) and featured the 2015 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards & Innovation Showcase, which included a full display of all winning packages and competition entries.
