And the winner is … FOODBOARD™ – PPI Award 2016 for MMK

08.06.2017 - FOODBOARD™, Barriers, Fairs, Company / Mills

FOODBOARD™ represents a milestone for the cartonboard industry: an environmentally friendly cartonboard with completely new features which opens up packaging applications we could have never thought of before in the paper-based packaging world.

FOODBOARD™

The core component is an innovative barrier on the food contact side of the board which offers protection against the migration of defined unintended substances into the food. In addition, FOODBOARD™ delivers impressive results with slightly grease resistant attributes, keeps certain packed products fresh and crispy for longer and also protects against organoleptic influences. Franz Rappold, Member of the Board: “The award underscores the solution competence of Mayr-Melnhof Karton as well as our ongoing efforts to increase the benefit to our customers. However, the best reward for all of us is to actively sell FOODBOARD™, thus comprehensively supplying the market with our food safety solution and ensuring permanently high consumer confidence.” The official awards ceremony took place on 21 November 2016 in Brussels.
