Anchor Packaging's Embraceable™ Wins 2016 WorldStar Award from the World Packaging Organization

Anchor Packaging's Embraceable™ Wins 2016 WorldStar Award from the World Packaging Organization

Monday, December 14th, 2015

In this year’s WorldStar Awards from the World Packaging Organization, Anchor Packaging’s Embraceable™ was this winner in 2016’s food category.

Embraceable™ was chosen out of a distinguished 293 entries from 35 countries, that included all types of packaging including food, beverage, pharmaceutical, health and beauty. All package entries are required to be previous winners of a recognized packaging award, according to a press release, and Anchor had previously become eligible by winning the AmeriStar Package Award. This year marks the second WorldStar for Anchor Packaging and the third award for the Embraceable package, joining an array of other awards won by other Anchor products.

Anchor's Embraceable Packaging

Embraceable is an 11” x 8” black, oval platter designed and patented with a locator ring in the bottom to hold a standard 8-ounce squat paper food container, the company explains. This serving size is perfect for chili, soups, oatmeal, grits, mac & cheese. Using a clear, anti-fog, vented PP lid containing an integral sealing flange that forms a lid over the paper container, the packaging forms a leak-resistant seal on the platter that eliminates the lid for the paper container. This, in turn, saves expense and reduces the amount of packaging consumed, Anchor explains, reducing carbon footprint. It also improves consumer convenience, as the meal travels in one container, rather than two.

For retail and foodservice convenience, both base and dome work well for hot foods held under heat lamps, chilled ready-to-heat meals in the microwave, and for assorted hot and cold food applications. The durable and cut-resistant black PP base withstands temperatures up to 230°F, according to a press release, and bases are made with natural mineral additives reducing the use of petroleum-based resin by 40%. Elimination of the extra lid for the paper container also demonstrates your environmental commitment to reduce waste.
