This year at the IDDBA show, Milliken & Company, our NX UltraClear PP partners and the creator of the NXTM 8000 clarifier for PP, will be showcasing NX UltraClear Polypropylene sheet from Impact Plastics at booth #1974. Milliken will also be showcasing new food packaging designs from top manufacturers to highlight the features and benefits of using NX UltraClear Polypropylene!

As more consumers supplement or replace full meals with snacks, the food industry is looking to enhance the experience of selecting, transporting and consuming fresh-to-go items from the deli/prepared food department of supermarkets and grocery stores.

Impact Plastics UltraClear Polypropylene.pngOne strategy is to create new packaging that checks important boxes for consumers, including:

  • Glass-like clarity: enhance appearance and shelf-appeal of fresh food options
  • Customizable: mix and match to accommodate different snacking needs
  • Convenient: allows for reheating in the microwave
  • Sustainable: can be recycled in municipal systems

Choosing the right packaging makes it easier and more enjoyable for shoppers to choose healthy, fresh snacks or full meal options from the deli/prepared food section, rather than relying on highly processed snacks, like chips, crackers and granola bars, from the center of the store.

To enhance fresh-to-go snacking and meal experiences, retailers and brand owners are turning to NX UltraClear Polypropylene sheet clarified with Milliken’s NX™ 8000 to support home meal replacement trends. NX™ UltraClear PP is a unique, glass-clear plastic that can be microwaved or used for hot-fill items, as well as for cold foods.
