Headquartered in Kunovice, Czechoslovakia, Hame is a major food processor and packager that markets a range of shelf-stable and chilled foods both within its own borders and to about 35 other countries.
In January 2007, H.J. Heinz Co. Australia Limited, in cooperation with EDV Packaging (www.edvpackaging.com), launched Greenseas-brand value-added, shelf-stable, single-serve chunky salmon and tuna products packaged in retortable, 100-g, high-barrier cups made of white PP/EVOH/PP.
A pair of 8.8-oz baby-food containers thermoformed by EDV from a polypropylene/ethylene vinyl alcohol/polypropylene coextrusion won a Gold Award from DuPont judges who admired not only the containers’ design and structural properties but also how efficiently cup manufacturing is done.
Babies in France have a new food packaging option courtesy of Nestlé France’s Coeur de Saveur baby food brand and customized, high-barrier, retortable, microwaveable plastic cups manufactured by EDV Packaging Group.
