Global packaging company MeadWestvaco (MWV) has received its Robinson EN 1230-2 sensory analysis approval for its Printkote paperboard for chocolate and confectionery packaging.

According to MWV, the analysis tests the paperboard’s ability to maintain product quality without a trace of taint or odor from the packaging, while Printkote’s approval on the Robinson test confirms the company’s ability to maintain product integrity.

The approval also provides brand owners with confidence in packaging solutions for their luxury confectionery products.

Earlier in 2012, MWV’s Crescendo paperboard also received its Robinson certification for chocolate and confectionery packaging.
