The Sherwood Group returns to Packaging Innovations show with Puracoat®

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

The Sherwood Group returns to the Packaging Innovations show at NEC, Birmingham to promote Puracoat®– a sustainable alternative to plastic and PE-lined food barrier packaging.

With consumer concerns over single-use plastics, the demand for the Sherwood Group’s water-based moisture and grease resistant barrier coating, Puracoat®, has never been higher.

Accredited on the go food packaging

Relaunched at the Packaging Innovations show in February 2018, with a tested accreditation from a third party industry, Puracoat® received great interest from a variety of visitors and a high number of enquires on live projects, particularly for on-the-go food packaging.

Jeremy Bacon, the Group’s Chief Executive Officer said: “We were overwhelmed with the number of enquires on Puracoat® during and after the show. We are pleased to see our new offering of an environmental substitute to plastic was so well received – environmental and innovative packaging solutions have always been at the heart of our business.”
