DuPont Honors Bemis in 2015 Packaging Innovation Competition

OSHKOSH, Wisconsin, May 19, 2015 – Bemis Company, Inc. is proud to announce it has been selected as a winner in the 2015 DuPont Packaging Awards for Packaging Innovation competition, receiving a Silver Award in the Enhanced User Experience category for the BelGioioso resealable provolone package.

BelGioioso Cheese’s new mild provolone package transforms resealable packaging at the club store level. Incorporating a sustainable, thin flexible forming film, this package provides consumer convenience by allowing the user to easily peel and reseal the package 20 times or more with Bemis’ SmartTack™ EZ Peel® Reseal™ technology.

Perforation between the two compartments allows the consumer to easily separate without using a knife or scissors. The individual cheese compartments are sealed separately, preserving the freshness of the unused portion until opening and reducing food waste – all while creating differentiation at the club store level for BelGioioso Cheese.

“BelGioioso saw a need in the club store market to offer their customers a large package of our award winning pre-sliced mild provolone with two separate resealable packages,” said Francis Wall, VP Marketing, BelGioioso Cheese. “We collaborated with Bemis to create a film to protect our cheese and deliver convenience to our customers.”

Bemis accepted the award at DuPont’s Celebration Day in Wilmington, Del. on Thursday, May 14, 2015. For additional information, please visit http://www.dupont.com/industries/packaging-and-printing/media/press-releases/27th-2015-dupont-packaging-awards-winners.html.
