Accelerating commitment to renewable solutions, recyclability and sustainability.

Sealed Air to Offer Plantic™ Bio-Based Food Packaging in the United States, Canada and Mexico

  (UNITED STATES, 6/6/2018)

Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE) has entered into an agreement with Kuraray America, Inc. (Kuraray), a Japanese chemical company, to offer food packaging materials derived from its Plantic™ bio-based resins.

“We are expanding our portfolio of sustainable solutions with Plantic’s bio-based materials. This solution enables us to offer a renewable packaging option and continue helping the industry address food waste by extending the shelf-life and freshness of food,” said Karl Deily, President of Sealed Air Food Care.

Ultra-high barrier PLANTIC™ materials extend the freshness and shelf life of products up to 40% and are made of up to 80% renewable material. Eco Plastic™ is cost competitive compared to conventional materials and used by the worlds leading retailers and processors.

Through this new cooperation with Kuraray, Sealed Air will offer Plantic materials to package perishable foods such as poultry, beef and seafood in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The materials provide a highly effective oxygen barrier that is also cost competitive with traditional rollstock barrier films.

Presentation and high barrier protection is at the forefront of PLANTIC™ offering.

“This investment not only accelerates Sealed Air’s commitment to renewability, recyclability and innovation, it is also an important pivot point for expanding the market leadership of the Cryovac® and Bubble Wrap® brands,” said Ted Doheny, Sealed Air President and Chief Executive Officer.

“This agreement with Sealed Air expands the options for sustainable bio-based barrier packaging that will benefit consumers, retailers and processors equally,” stated Robert Armstrong, General Manager of EVAL and Plantic, Kuraray America, Inc.

“Plantic materials set a new standard for bio-based barrier packaging performance, provide unmatched sustainability metrics and can be recycled through traditional streams in some countries including Australia,”said Armstrong.
