The KRAFT YES Pack, an innovative and eco-friendly dressings package for the foodservice industry, has been awarded the coveted DuPont Packaging Award for innovation. The groundbreaking packaging design by KRAFT is designed to help operators manage costs and improve back-of-house efficiencies by conserving energy and raw materials during the production process. A recent winner of the 2012 National Restaurant Association Food and Beverage Product Innovation Award, the YES Pack stands for Yield, Ease and Sustainability.
"The DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation celebrates how collaborating throughout the value chain can bring cost-effective innovation to the market in a way that matters to consumers," said Shanna Moore, global director sustainable packaging, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers.
The YES Pack by KRAFT earned a silver award in the category of Innovation. The KRAFT YES Pack can be recycled, but if thrown away its waste takes up 50% less landfill space. Compared with the typical rigid gallon dressing jug, in production the YES Pack is made with:
- 50% less energy
- 60% less plastic
- 70% fewer CO2 emissions from transportation.
YES Pack provides foodservice operators with the same delicious KRAFT Dressings that customers rely on in new, more efficient packaging. Available in a 2/1-gallon format, the YES Pack allows operators to stock a greater variety of flavors with a smaller investment.
