Bemis Earns Silver in 2015 DuPont Packaging Awards
The company’s BelGioioso resealable provolone package scored a Silver Award in the “Enhanced User Experience” category.
Bemis Company, Inc. has been selected as a winner in the 2015 DuPont Packaging Awards for Packaging Innovation competition, receiving a Silver Award in the “Enhanced User Experience” category for the BelGioioso resealable provolone package.
BelGioioso Cheese’s new mild provolone package transforms resealable packaging at the club store level. Incorporating a sustainable, thin flexible forming film, this package provides consumer convenience by allowing the user to easily peel and reseal the package 20 times or more with Bemis’ SmartTack™ EZ Peel® Reseal™ technology.
Perforation between the two compartments allows the consumer to easily separate without using a knife or scissors. The individual cheese compartments are sealed separately, preserving the freshness of the unused portion until opening and reducing food waste – all while creating differentiation at the club store level for BelGioioso Cheese.
“BelGioioso saw a need in the club store market to offer their customers a large package of our award-winning pre-sliced mild provolone with two separate resealable packages,” said Francis Wall, VP of marketing, BelGioioso Cheese. “We collaborated with Bemis to create a film to protect our cheese and deliver convenience to our customers.”
Bemis accepted the award at DuPont’s Celebration Day in Wilmington, Del. on Thursday, May 14, 2015.
