The Baby Carrot ShakeDowns package won the Silver Award from the Flexible Packaging Association.
The package encompasses several innovations developed by Union City, Calif.-based Emerald, according to a news release. A seal between the dry flavoring and the wet carrots can be easily pulled apart to allow the flavoring to cover the carrots. It was achieved by combining a specially designed film lamination with a controlled pouch converting process.
The package is laser perforated in the carrot section to allow for proper respiration to maximize shelf life.
