Milliken & Company, in conjunction with leaders in the food manufacturing, packaging design, and grocery store sectors, will launch unique packaging concepts to meet consumer needs for convenience, high quality and food safety at IDDBA 2017, in booth #1974. One new design was created for consumers who want customizable fresh food options. This new concept, developed for the deli/prepared foods department of supermarkets and grocery stores, will enable shoppers to select one item as a snack, or choose multiple items to create a small meal. The second innovative packaging concept to be launched at the show features a tamper-evident design to provide customers with assurance about food safety and freshness.
Both new food packaging designs are made with Milliken’s NX™ UltraClear polypropylene. This advanced material provides glass-like clarity and allows the packaging to be used in hot and cold cases and reheated in the microwave, as needed. Both concepts support trends in home meal replacement and enable retailers to sell more food by presenting it in clear, convenient packaging.
The new customizable packaging concept will be on display at the Show and Sell Marketplace at IDDBA 2017 in Anaheim, CA, June 4-6. It will also be featured together with the new tamper-evident packaging at Milliken’s booth, where representatives will be on hand to discuss these novel designs and the company’s other packaging technologies.
