MeadWestvaco Corporation Launches EnShield Kit 5 for Food & Food Service To-Go Packaging

MeadWestvaco Corporation announced the launch of EnShield(TM) kit 5, a new lightweight paperboard for packaging foods that require resistance to oil and grease. EnShield kit 5 offers market-appropriate barrier protection for moderately greasy foods and delivers best-in-class performance with printability, consistency and uniformity. Based on proprietary research, MWV learned that consumers frequently encounter an issue with their to-go food packaging soaking up oil and grease from their meal. In fact, 26% of consumers frequently encounter this issue and 59% said it was a major annoyance. EnShield kit 5 was developed to offer brand owners an opportunity to improve consumer satisfaction for food packaging with the right barrier protection while meeting corporate sustainability goals. The paperboard is fully repulpable and recyclable, improving packaging end-of-life options versus traditional poly-coated boards. MWV launched EnShield kit 5 at the 2014 Research Chef's Association (RCA) Culinology Expo, which attracts food industry professionals and suppliers. The expo has become the venue to launch new, cutting edge products and processes that exemplify culinology, the blending of culinary arts and food technology.

MeadWestvaco Corporation Announces Launch of Evertain

MeadWestvaco Corporation announced the launch of Evertain(R), the hermetically sealable, airtight paperboard package for foods that require protection from oxygen and moisture. MWV's patented technology combines a specially sealed inner seam with barrier coating to preserve freshness and extend shelf life. Packaging Matters(TM) is MWV's annual consumer satisfaction study. This year's research showed that preserving freshness was the most important attribute for overall product satisfaction, closely followed by "easy to carry" and easy to reclose. The Evertain(R) family of barrier packaging achieves all three. Evertain(R) comes in four reclosable sizes, including round and non-round varieties with customizable levels of barrier against oxygen and moisture. The Evertain(R) on-the-go snack cup has the added feature of portability. With Americans increasingly eating their snacks on the go, it's no surprise that they want food packaging that is both portable and easy to reclose. The Evertain(R) snack cup is designed to fit in standard car cup holders, a feature that has been shown to lead to increased snacking occasions. In addition, Evertain offers unique efficiency and sustainability benefits. Evertain(R) is 60% lighter than comparably sized composite and metal cans. The package's nestability allows eight times as many empty packages to be stored in the same space, reducing warehousing space and the number of trucks needed for transport. And, unlike composite cans and plastic canisters, Evertain(R) containers enable direct printing of graphics--eliminating the need for excess labels and packaging. All Evertain(R) fiber is sourced from responsibly managed forests and is 100% chain of custody certified. Evertain(R) is launching at SNAXPO 2014.
