MB12 packaging technology
With growing concern around the risks of mineral oils, scientists at the University of Dresden analysed seven packaging solutions. Their aim was to understand which option best safeguarded packaged food from mineral oil migration.
Smurfit Kappa’s MB12 technology came out on top.
HOW MB12 PROTECTS PERISHABLE GOODS
MB12 has been proven to protect perishable food products such as rice, chocolate and cereals from mineral oil migration.
MB12 technology uses adsorption, a chemical reaction that traps mineral oils to keep food safe over time. It continues to perform – even when the packaging is folded or scratched.
This new technology can be applied to all paper-based packaging.
Adsorbs mineral oils that exist within the packaging and those that migrate from the outside environment.
No impact on packing, filling or supply chain operations.
Unlike coated board or plastic alternatives, MB12 won’t impact the sustainability of your packaging.
Companies that act now are staying one step ahead of draft legislation, consumer protection groups and pressure from retailers.
