International Paper has announced the next generation of its ClimaShield™ poultry product, which provides strong moisture barriers and is fully recyclable.
ClimaShield is the latest addition and improvement to the ClimaSeries family of products developed specifically for the poultry industry.
ClimaShield technology allows the poultry industry to take advantage of an environmentally friendly moisture barrier that can be customised to specific environments across various supply chains. Corrugated containers treated with ClimaShield are 100% recyclable and can be sold into the Old Corrugated Container (OCC) recovery stream.
“International Paper is capitalising on more than 10 years of experience in wax replacement technology, and over the past few years we have implemented technological breakthroughs that have taken this expertise to a whole new level,” said Jimmy Fielding, International Paper poultry segment director. “We believe ClimaShield is the next logical step in meeting customer needs for alternatives to petroleum based wax.”
International Paper offers a broad line of wax and wax-alternative technologies for the poultry and red meat packaging market. In addition, the company supplies packaging for top-ice/ice pack, offal, modified atmosphere, bulk and retail applications.
