Hot N Handy Pouch Achieves Sustainability Award

The Hot N Handy Rotisserie Pouch was honored with two Gold Awards from the Flexible Packaging Association in 2008: One for Environmental and Sustainable Achievement and a second for Packaging Excellence. The awards recognize the Hot N Handy Rotisserie Pouch as the most advanced sustainable solution for rotisserie chicken in the market today.
The Hot N Handy pouch was developed as a value-added alternative to the rigid two-piece dome and lid container for rotisserie chickens in retail deli hot and cold cases.  The 9-color flexo-printed, leak resistant pouch is resealable and provides a die-cut handle for easy carrying.

The Environmental and Sustainability Achievement award recognizes how the Hot N Handy Pouch provides the most advanced sustainable solution for rotisserie chicken in the market today.  The manufacturing of the pouch (including raw materials) provides 85% less CO2 and uses 88% less crude oil than the rigid two-piece dome.  Hot N Handy Pouches use 80% less packaging material than rigid containers and offers a 66% reduction in solid waste introduced into landfill.

In addition, the Hot N Handy Pouch uses 60% less corrugated boxes for shipping and 92.6% reduction over rigid containers in fuel, trucks and pallets when shipping the same quantity.
