Cargill Grab N’ Go Deli Meat Package
Manufacturer: Amcor Flexibles, amcor.com: Silver Awards in Packaging Excellence and Technical Innovation
Description: The Cargill Grab N’ Go high-barrier deli meat package utilizes a new, proprietary, dual-purpose, minimal-depth-forming, and non-forming film from Amcor with high-oxygen barrier and strength properties. The film is less than 1.75 mil thick and exhibits attributes of a non-barrier, thin PE zipper bag commonly found at delis.
