Bemis Company received two DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation at DuPont’s recognition celebration, held recently in Wilmington, Delaware, US.
Bemis was presented a Silver Award for Technological Advancement for the Hillshire Brands Heat Fresh package and for Enhanced User Experience for the Fugini standup pouch for vegetables.
Hillshire Brands Heat Fresh package
The Hillshire Brands Heat Fresh package combines proprietary films and features to control moisture, heat, and pressure during microwaving.
This package solves the perpetual need in microwavable sandwich kits to keep the bread soft while heating the rest of the product.
These innovations can be integrated into a wide range of heat-and-eat solutions.
Fugini standup pouch
The Fugini standup pouch for vegetables uses Bemis’ unique barrier films in South America to provide a light, strong, and flexible replacement for the former metal can packaging format.
The company says this sustainable packaging format helps to reduce logistics costs, as it weighs significantly less than bulkier metal cans.
It also provides convenience at the foodservice and retail levels with its features that make it easy to store, handle, and open.
