Winners of the recently announced 2007 AmeriStar Packaging Competition, Bapco are delighted with their achievements for their Twister 82mm sealing system.
Bapco Closures are delighted to reveal that their revolutionary Bapco Twister 82mm sealing system coupled with a new Graham Packaging container designed for Del Monte Fruit in a Jar, has been awarded a winning position in the competitive Food Category, alongside other innovations from ConAgra, Wal*Mart and Frito Lay.
The unique wide-reaching benefits offered through this packaging system were assessed on their impact to the industry in the areas of:
This innovation represents a paradigm shift in packaging for pasteurized and retorted foods currently confined to glass jars and metal cans. The Bapco closure system is a key-driver with regard to the performance and cost of plastic container solutions intended for high thermal processing in food filling plants.
Consumers have long awaited safe, lightweight, easy open, re-sealable containers to replace old glass jars and metal cans, and manufacturers, a product to lower operational costs with enhanced performance.
Display and formal announcement of the AmeriStar award winners will take place at the Packaging Summit Expo and Conference, in May.
