Game-changing packaging innovations at Bemis

1.Micvac Refrigerated Ready Meal technology brings benefits to processors and packagers as well as to consumers in a sealed, self-venting tray that whistles when it’s ready. The packaging combines a CPET tray and film that uses a special venting patch that permits the packaged meal to be microwave pasteurized by the processor; subsequently, that same patch acts as a vent for home microwave reheating by consumers. Bemis reports a 30 days’ refrigerated shelf life for the meals.

Augmented Reality and 3D printing for packaging development, paper-like film coatings and a microwave-pasteurized refrigerated meal with a valve that whistles when the meal is ready and more were on display at Bemis’ Pack Expo booth.

If you like one-stop shopping for value-added, processor and consumer-driven convenience, Bemis Co.’s Pack Expo booth that housed “Game Changer” developments was as good a display of packaging innovation as any at Pack Expo. We present in visual form a virtual tour of innovative packaging found in the Bemis Co. booth in this Slideshow Gallery:

1. Something to whistle about: Micvac Refrigerated Ready Meal technology.

2. 3D printing assists package development.

3. Augmented Reality for consumer studies.

4. BallPark’s Beef Franks use paper-like film coating that ties directly into the tactile packaging trend we’ve been reporting lately (see Getting a feel for multi-sensory packaging).
