WestRock received the Leadership in Sustainability Award for Safety for creating recovery boiler safety shields and the Innovation in Sustainability Award for developing EnShield® Natural Kraft, a completely recyclable paperboard that is suitable for foodservice packaging. “WestRock’s safety shield helps to eliminate a safety hazard, showing that creativity and ingenuity go a long way in protecting the wellbeing of employees,” said AF&PA President and CEO Heidi Brock. WestRock’s Kraft containerboard mill in Hopewell, Virginia developed a safety shield to cover the recovery boiler ports and eliminate the risk of burn injuries to boiler operators and bystanders. EnShield® Natural Kraft is an innovative, completely recyclable paperboard that has the same level of oil and grease resistance as plastic and plastic-lined alternatives. Manufactured at WestRock's Mahrt, Alabama paper mill, its proprietary coating is achieved on the paper machine, eliminating the need for additional manufacturing steps.
Smurfit Kappa developed a new Pouch-Up® packaging solution for Pressade to help with their goal of making juice a more integral part of the family breakfast routine.
With a brand new 3 litre size, the eye-catching La Fabrique à jus is easy to store and the handy tap means that children can easily use it without spilling.
The juice keeps fresh for three weeks versus four or five days for more traditional packaging for ambient juices.
