Smurfit Kappa produces sustainable primary packaging for food
Smurfit Kappa’s pioneering MB12 carton is now available for primary packaging. The food safe MB12 packaging helps customers to eliminate mineral oil migration with a sustainable solution.
The MB12 technology is designed to prevent the migration of mineral oil into packaged food. MB12’s efficiency has been verified by Eurofins, one of the world’s leaders in food and pharmaceutical product testing, to give customers full confidence that the primary packaging acts as a barrier to provide robust protection against outside influences.
An independent year long study by the Technical University of Dresden found that Smurfit Kappa’s MB12 was the most effective product on the market for protecting packaged food against potential contamination.
Lars Henriksson, vice president product development, Smurfit Kappa Paper Division, said: ‘Our customers have a diverse set of needs and we are committed to helping them find the right primary packaging for their requirements.
‘Product safety remains at the forefront of what we do as an industry. Developing our unique MB12 primary packaging further demonstrates how we are innovating to provide a broad range of sustainable solutions for our customers that not only meet all food safety standards but that go one step further.’
MB12 is made using natural ingredients in recycled board. It is 100% recyclable and can be delivered as FSC chain of custody certified. Available in a range of weights, MB12 also protects against organoleptic3 effects of taste and odour into the food.
