DuPont: Winning Breakthrough

Bertolli Pasta Sauce Pouches from Unilever and Amcor Flexibles


Replacing glass jars with stand-up pouches uses 70 percent less material. This development overcame significant technical hurdles in shelf stable packaging for this oxygen sensitive product. Now microwavable right in the pouch, this new packaging offers significant consumer benefit and ease of use versus jars and offers retail benefits through easier handling and equivalent shelf life. The benefits of transport efficiency are substantial. One truckload of unfilled pouches equals 25 truckloads of unfilled glass jars. Recognized for Enhanced Performance and Resource and Energy Optimization.
