The Flexible Packaging Association honored Bemis Company during its 61st annual awards program for the Hunt’s Recipe Ready tomato paste pouch and the NFI/UPM Pharmaceuticals’ Lidocare pain relief patch pouch.
The tomato paste pouch received five awards including the Highest Achievement Award, the Gold Award for Extending the Use of Flexible Packaging, the Gold Award for Packaging Excellence, the Gold Award for Sustainability, and the Silver Award for Printing and Shelf Impact.
Meanwhile, the second pouch received a Silver Award for Technical Innovation.
The Hunt’s Recipe Ready pouches provide a convenient alternative to tomato paste in a can.
The pouch delivers a mess-free, pre-measured two-tablespoon portion.
Consumers tear, dispense and toss.
Advanced Bisphenol A-free barrier films withstand the acidic paste and hot-fill process, deliver a one-year shelf life, and offer a lighter weight alternative to cans.
Vibrant graphics communicate benefits and quality to brand-loyal Hunt’s consumers.
Meanwhile, the NFI/UPM Pharmaceuticals’ Lidocare pain relief patch pouch features Bemis’ CXB sealant film that provides superior barrier and low drug uptake compared to other polymer sealants.
This packaging solution helps maintain the efficacy of the transdermal patch inside the package, an essential feature for pharmaceutical companies and consumers.
