Change from film to thermoform package ups convenience factor.

Olivieri, a division of Maple Leaf Foods, teamed withSealed Air’sCryovac Food Solutions to create the packaging of their cannelloni. The container has a microwave- and oven-safe thermoformed tray, customized with channels that allow for even distribution of sauce and separation of the cannelloni during cooking. Prior to the redesign, the product was packaged in a rollstock format that required items to be transferred to an oven-safe container before cooking.

Olivieri was honored with a Silver Award in the rigid/semi-rigid category for the redesign at the 2011 Packaging Association of Canada (PAC) Leadership Awards.
