Berry Plastics Receives 2014 Silver Award For Technical Innovation From Flexible Packaging Association

Stocks in this article: BERY

Berry Plastics Group, Inc.’s (NYSE: BERY) new nine-layer film for dry food packaging, recently earned the Company a Silver Award for Technical Innovation from the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA).

“Designed for the cereal and cracker market, this packaging film represents a significant step forward in materials engineering and property management in this market,” explained Greg Gard, Senior Vice President of Technical Innovation for Berry Plastics’ Flexible Packaging Division. “The film was engineered with an enhanced moisture barrier to ensure a crisper dry food product as it nears the end of the package shelf life.”

Berry Plastics employed a nine-layer blown film capability to precisely manage all aspects of the finished films properties and performance. With this approach, using market leading thin barrier layers, the film delivers the required flavor/oxygen barrier, an enhanced moisture barrier, and good toughness.

The packaging also features easy opening seals, allowing for convenient access to the food product. The film which is 10 percent less in total thickness, as compared to competing products, not only helps to reduce total packaging but also means less packaging material to dispose of after the contents are used.

“One of the largest benefits of this product is its ability to deliver the same food quality and package use experience to the consumer at a significant savings to the package producer,” added Paul Wolak, Technical Director with Berry Plastics’ Flexible Packaging Division. “We are honored to receive a Silver Award from the FPA, as it underscores our belief that this innovative new packaging solution is a win-win for our customers and end consumers.”
