"Waterless Internet Flower Packaging" by India’s largest multinational flexible packaging materials and solution company Uflex Limited has been conferred with a series of Top Honors at the 61st Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards ceremony held in Florida. Waterless Internet Flower Packaging works on the principle of Active Modified Atmospheric Packaging (AMAP) through FlexfreshTM - a special patented polymeric film offering shelf-life extension solution for fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. Uflex introduced this specialised packaging solution in India and Overseas earlier last year which has been getting good response from the market.
Various categories in which Uflex’s Waterless Internet Flower Packaging was awarded are:
Silver in Packaging Excellence
Expressing delight at this whopping feat, Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman and Managing Director, Uflex Limited said, “FlexfreshTM impeccably upholds the ethos of Flexible Packaging through myriad sustainable advantages that it offers towards shelf life extension for Fresh Produce from a few days to several weeks. We have already tried and tested the efficacy of this packaging solution for fresh produce ranging from Iceberg Lettuce to Broccoli to Bell Peppers, Rambutan, Mangos to Blueberries and now to Flowers. Trials for several other categories are underway. We are living in a world where almost one-third of the food (approximately 1.3 bln tons) produced for human consumption is wasted every year and millions of poor go hungry every day. A major portion of this wastage occurs due to flawed packaging. I am glad that the engineers at Uflex were able to perceive this need- gap and plugged it by developing FlexfreshTM. I would like to thank the Esteemed Jury of Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards 2017 for assessing the true potential of FlexfreshTM and the mettle it beholds to bend the arc of the history to the best advantage of the poor."
