The program celebrates excellence and innovation achieved by leading-edge companies around the world across every category of the global dairy industry.

An exclusive development of Sealed Air and G. Mondini S.p.A., this unique vacuum skin packaging system with flat cardboard base is designed specifically for case-ready and dairy-solid products. It uses an innovative, patented technology that eliminates film waste while increasing productivity. Since the flat support is less bulky than trays used in standard modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), the packaging system is also able to reduce transportation and storage space by up to 80 percent.

“This is an outstanding recognition and we’re proud that Cryovac Darfresh on Board is demonstrating innovation with the dairy industry and our customers” said John Dawson, Global Marketing Director for Dairy at Sealed Air Food Care. “In addition to superior freshness, this sustainable product allows the consumer to responsibly dispose of the material and recycle the cardboard.”

Since shelf life is extended, processors and retailers are also able to decrease food waste and shrink while also reducing the food and packaging carbon footprint by up to 70 percent versus MAP.

This year’s World Dairy Innovation Awards winners were revealed on June 20 during a special event at the Global Dairy Congress in Warsaw, Poland.
