DuPont honors Bemis in 2017 Packaging Innovation competition

Bemis has been honored by DuPont for the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Bakery Delights package featuring textured film.

The package received a Silver Award in the 2017 DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.

The innovative Kellogg’s package features textured film technology, presenting on shelf as a bakery treat that looks like it’s wrapped in kraft paper and twine. To capture the attention of millennial shoppers, the package is designed to look, feel, crinkle and crunch like paper.

The thin-gauge flow wrap film is a practical alternative to paper laminates. The packaging extends the breakfast cake’s shelf life and appeal, while meeting brand owners’ need for packaging speed, hermetic seals and product protection.

“The DuPont Packaging Awards honor innovations in the packaging supply chain that demonstrate excellence in technological advancement, responsible packaging and enhanced user experience while incorporating science, inspiration and creativity,” said Bernard Rioux, global packaging leader, DuPont Performance Materials.

“The 2017 winners are true representations of how companies innovate and collaborate to solve industry problems."

Bemis is a major supplier of flexible and rigid plastic packaging used by leading food, consumer products, healthcare, and other companies worldwide. 

Bemis works collaboratively with forward-thinking customers to deliver inspired packaging that enables customer success. Founded in 1858, Bemis reported 2016 net sales from continuing operations of $4.0 billion.
