Taint and odour-free paperboard for confectionary packaging

MeadWestvaco Corporation received its Robinson EN 1230-2 sensory analysis approval for its Printkote paperboard for chocolate and confectionery packaging.

Required for all confectionery packaging and paperboard, the analysis tests the substrate’s ability to maintain product quality without a trace of taint or odour from the packaging.

Printkote’s approval on the Robinson test confirms its ability to maintain product integrity and value and provides brand owners with confidence in packaging solutions for their luxury confectionery products. Printkote meets the high standards of packaging seen in the European chocolate and confectionery market and is safe for direct food contact.

Without the addition of optical brighteners, a light creamy warm shade supports colour intensity, enabling high quality, eye-catching graphics to stand out.

The superior ‘dead fold’ performance of Printkote results in a squarer and tighter package – helping to elevate brands in the minds of consumers.

In addition to Printkote, earlier this year MWV’s Crescendo paperboard received its Robinson certification for chocolate and confectionery packaging.
