Bemis Company, Inc. has received a DuPont Award for Excellence in Continuing Innovation at the Silver Anniversary of the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation. Bemis has won 15 DuPont Packaging Awards since 1987, which is more than any other company. The DuPont Packaging Awards are the packaging industry's longest running global celebration of innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain. Independently judged entries are evaluated for excellence in one or more areas of packaging innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction.
As a special recognition category for the quarter-century celebration, the Continuing Innovation awards highlight past DuPont winners who have won five or more times and whose breakthrough projects have shaped the future of packaging.
Bemis's 15 DuPont Packaging Awards include 2012's Diamond Award for FreshCase® packaging, its high-barrier solution specifically designed to prolong the shelf life of fresh red meat. The company received its first DuPont Award in 1987 for RoyalVac® 400 packaging equipment, one of the first continuous-motion vacuum packaging machines to remove oxygen from the package and extend freshness.
