The Smurfit Kappa MB12 technology is designed to prevent the migration of mineral oil into packaged food. MB12’s efficiency has been verified by Eurofins, the world leader in food and pharmaceutical product testing.
An independent year-long study by the Technical University of Dresden found that Smurfit Kappa’s MB12 was the most effective product on the market for protecting packaged food against potential contamination, the company reported.
“Our customers have a diverse set of needs and we are committed to helping them find the right primary packaging for their requirements,” said Lars Henriksson, VP product development, Smurfit Kappa Paper Division. “Product safety remains at the forefront of what we do as an industry. Developing our unique MB12 primary packaging further demonstrates how we are innovating to provide a broad range of sustainable solutions for our customers that not only meet all food safety standards but that go one step further.”
MB12 is made using natural ingredients in recycled board. It is 100 percent recyclable and can be delivered as FSC chain-of-custody certified.
