Golden State Foods Wins 2021 Package Of The Year From The Association For Dressings & Sauces For Its Sealed Air® And Golden State Foods Flexprep™ Pouch
(October 20, 2021) ATLANTA, GA – The Association for Dressings & Sauces (ADS) awarded Irvine, California-based Golden State Foods the Package of the Year Award for its Sealed Air® and Golden State Foods CRYOVAC® brand FlexPrep® portion-dispensing pouches. The announcement was made during the ADS Technical Meeting “Approaching the Way Forward” held in Scottsdale, Arizona October 10-12.
The flexible, hermetically sealed pouches reduce primary packaging by up to 85 percent and are engineered with a unique frangible seal technology that allows the pouch to open without the need of a sharp object. The Sealed Air® and Golden State Foods CRYOVAC® brand FlexPrep® portion-dispensing pouches is produced by CRYOVAC® Brand Food Packaging and is available in a variety of sizes.
“We’re thankful for the support of the ADS membership in voting to recognize the FlexPrep Pouch and honor the innovation that made this efficient, sustainable solution possible for our industry,” said Eric Treon, Group Vice President, GMBU. “GSF’s progress in packaging innovation has succeeded because of the forward-thinking partnership we share with Sealed Air, which continues to bring value to our customers.”
Sealed Air CRYOVAC® was recognized as the supporting vendor for its contribution to the FlexPrep™ Pouch.
