CHARLOTTE, N.C., Tuesday, May 17, 2016 – Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) earned a Silver Award in the 28th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation for Korrvu Lok™, a sustainable, customer-focused design which was honored specifically for creating an enhanced user experience.
The DuPont Packaging Awards program is an international, independently-judged competition that honors innovations in packaging design, materials, technology, and processes across the entire packaging value chain. Inaugurated in 1986, the DuPont Packaging Awards program is recognized globally as the leading packaging awards program and received more than 170 entries and selected 22 packages to receive recognition in this year’s competition. Sealed Air was one of only nine entries to receive a Silver Award.
Manufactured with fewer materials than past designs and compliant with national and international recycling requirements, the packaging is manufactured using a standard corrugated fiberboard frame that is easily recyclable in the corrugated waste stream. The Korrvu Lok™ solution eliminates the need for messy or excessive void filling materials, keeping the item inside locked in place and cleanly presented. The design is easy to open, easy to reuse and recycle, and enables effortless reverse logistics if the customer needs to make a return. The elegant visual design also enhances the brand of the items inside as well as the consumer experience.
