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 and the recent introduction of a new tax on plastic packaging by the UK Government, 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 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.
Visit us on stand J32 to see how we can help you remove plastic from your food packaging.
Puracoat® is an evolutionary product in food barrier packaging, offering food manufacturers an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plastic, PE and other forms of barrier control. Applied in line at The Sherwood Group’s premises in Nottingham, there are a range of options that can be tailored to individual product requirements.
Puracoat® is suitable for direct food contact and it can reach the maximum grease resistant test of ‘Kit 12’, verified independently by Smithers Pira. Examples of Puracoat® applications include on-the-go food packaging, frozen food, bakery, confectionery and other direct contact food packaging.
