News: 

A revolutionary new barrier coating, which is both water and grease resistant, has been developed by europe&rsquos leading corrugated cardboard packaging manufacturer smurfit kappa.  The new technology will enable food packaging containing frozen foods or hot and cold greasy snacks to be made from corrugated cardboard and is currently being trialled by a major supermarket for hot baked products. Smurfit kappa&rsquos barrier coating will prevent frozen food moisture from penetrating a corrugated cardboard surround, plus stop convenience and snack food grease from infiltrating outer paperbased packaging. The new development has potentially revolutionary implications for the food industry. It will allow present frozen and greasy product packaging, which currently has to be made from metal or plastic, to be made from corrugated cardboard. This will enable a shift to more environmentally friendly, recyclable forms of packaging. More information at www.smurfitkappa.co.uk
