Smurfit Kappa Replaces EPS Packaging With Paper-Based Option Smurfit Kappa has launched an innovative and sustain- able new pack which keeps frozen and chilled foods fresh throughout the supply chain. Made from a 100 percent pa- per-based combination of Hexacomb and corrugated, the Thermo Box keeps frozen food including fish at tempera- tures similar to expanded polystyrene (EPS) boxes. Smurfit Kappa was approached by a global supplier of fresh and frozen foods including vegetables, meat and fish and non-food products for the catering industry to develop a packaging solution. While the majority of existing tem- perature-controlled food packaging solutions depend on using EPS due to its insulation properties, Smurfit Kappa’s new Thermo Box is 100 percent recyclable. The pack also offers greater flexibility than EPS as it can be stored flat, different sizes can be easily created, and the corrugated exterior offers good branding opportunities. “Smurfit Kappa undertook an analysis of our supply chain to grasp all the challenges and complexities,” said Patrick Oostveen, Managing Director at Patani Global Food B.V. “We did a series of temperature tests to compare the new pack with the EPS box and the results showed that the Thermo Box is a really excellent product that more than fits the brief. The average temperature was even kept lower for a longer time than when using the EPS boxes.” Arco Berkenbosch, Smurfit Kappa VP of Innovation & Development, added, “This project was the result of a successful collaborative process. Our starting point was to see how we could provide a completely biodegradable product that would not compromise on any of the required functionality. The paper-based solution we came up with draws strength from its corrugated and honeycomb capa- bilities and offers significant potential for both fresh and frozen goods and, indeed, the eCommerce sector.”
