Bemis receives DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation

June 4, 2014

The award-winning The Hillshire Brands Heat FreshT package combines films and features to control moisture, heat and pressure during microwaving.

Bemis Company, Inc  received two DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation at DuPont's recognition celebration, held recently in Wilmington, DE, USA. Bemis was presented a Silver Award for Technological Advancement for the Hillshire Brands Heat FreshT package and a Silver Award for Enhanced User Experience for the Fugini standup pouch for vegetables.

"We are honored to receive these prestigious DuPont awards," says William Jackson, VP and chief technology officer of Bemis Company. "These recognitions reflect our persistent focus on innovation, our technological expertise in material science, and our collaborative relationships with innovative customers like Hillshire and Fugini."

The Hillshire Brands Heat FreshT package combines proprietary films and innovative 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 systems.

The Fugini standup pouch for vegetables uses Bemis' barrier films in South America to provide a light, strong, and flexible replacement for the former metal can packaging format. This sustainable packaging format not only helps deliver reduced logistics costs, as it weighs significantly less than bulkier metal cans, but also provides convenience at the foodservice and retail levels with its features that make it easy to store, handle, and open.
