    2023-05-24 Driving Change in Food Packaging: YUTOECO Presents Cutting-edge Sustainable Solutions at NRA Show 2023
    The National Restaurant Association Show 2023, held at McCormick Place in Chicago from May 20th to 23rd, 2023, is the premier platform for showcasing foodservice innovation and inspiration worldwide. With over 2000 exhibitors and a substantial number of visitors, this grand event covers a wide range of product categories, offering state-of-the-art solutions for the food and beverage industry. YUTOECO, a subsidiary brand of the renowned packaging company YUTO, is dedicated to sustainable packaging solutions. At this exhibition, we proudly showcased our latest innovations in catering packaging, encompassing a wide range of sectors, including fresh food, take-out, coffee, baking, and retail. Additionally, we presented eco-friendly outer packaging solutions tailored specifically for food brands, helping them better achieve their sustainability objectives and strengthen their brand identity. PFAS-free solutions Molded pulp packaging has emerged as the preferred choice for merchants and consumers due to its environmentally friendly attributes. To enhance the grease resistance of molded fiber packaging, the market has introduced fluorine greaseproof agents, enabling it to achieve excellent greaseproof performance. However, PFAS, known as the "forever chemical" due to its non-degradability, poses risks to human health. According to a consumer report in August 2020, substances containing PFAS can persist in the human body for extended periods. During this exhibition, YUTOECO also showcased several PFAS-free solutions that we currently utilize, including additives in the pulp, and surface treatments (coating, lamination), which can provide customers with diversified PFAS-free alternatives. Fresh food solutions In terms of fresh food packaging, achieving high barrier performance is crucial. Traditional plant fiber packaging, unfortunately, struggles to meet this demand. Consequently, plastic trays have been widely used in the market. In an effort to reduce plastic usage, YUTOECO has replaced plastic trays with molded pulp trays as the primary component of fresh food packaging. These trays are enhanced with a thin layer of high-barrier EVOH film, significantly reducing plastic consumption by up to 90%. This innovative approach not only addresses sustainability concerns but also ensures long-lasting freshness for food.  In addition, we have collaborated with our clients to develop recyclable paper-based materials as an alternative to plastic for fresh food packaging. After use, the paper tray can be easily separated from the plastic film, facilitating recycling.

In addition, biodegradable containers also appeal to consumers. As more and more people become aware of the negative impact of plastic waste on the environment, they are seeking out more sustainable options for their purchases. Biodegradable containers offer a way for food businesses to meet this demand and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers. YUTOECO is a leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions, dedicated to the research and development of eco-friendly materials. Our commitment to sustainability extends to the catering industry, where we offer a range of environmentally friendly tableware options for various applications, including take-out, coffee, baking, fresh food, and more.

The adoption of biodegradable containers is a significant step towards a greener future and a more sustainable planet. By utilizing these containers, food businesses can appeal to consumers who prioritize sustainability, while also contributing to a healthier planet.
