The European Aluminum Foil Assn. awarded its Alufoil Trophy for Resource Efficiency to Ampac, Cincinnati, OH, for the Sprout Organic Baby Food pouch, which is meant to be heated in hot water and not boiled or microwaved. The standup retort pouch is reclosable and includes Ampac's Linear Tear technology for easy opening. It also features photo-quality, gravure-printed graphics. The product is designed to provide a more sustainable alternative to standard baby food packaged in glass jars or rigid cups, providing significant savings in shipping and storage weight while minimizing breakage versus a glass jar.
