EVANSVILLE, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 6, 2013--
Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is proud to announce that it
recently received three Excellence in Flexography Awards from the
Flexographic Technical Association (FTA), including the organization’s
2013 Technical Innovation Award for the Company's Indirect Flexo (IDF)
“We are deeply honored to receive not only the 2013 Technical Innovation
Award, but also receive a Bronze and Silver award from the FTA which is
such a highly-respected industry organization,” said Jennye Scott, Vice
President of Creative Services at Berry Plastics.
Founded in 1958, the FTA is the world’s leading professional society
dedicated to the advancement of the flexographic printing industry.
Flexographic printing uses inked flexible printing plates, with slightly
raised images, that are placed on a rotating cylinder to transfer an
image to a substrate, such as plastic used in packaging.
Developed as an alternative to dry offset printing, IDF is a patent
pending process which allows Berry Plastics to produce excellent
photographic quality graphics on white, clear, and colored substrates.
The exceptional graphic quality is achieved through utilization of
high-res digital plate imaging and true CMYK flexographic process,
allowing for softer edges, better highlights, and the ability to
replicate the full-color spectrum. In addition, the IDF process allows
for this high-end printing to occur directly on the injection or
thermoform part by compensating for the angle between the top and the
bottom of the cup or container.
“Berry Plastics is the only provider in North America of the unique IDF
printing process,” added Scott. “We are extremely excited by the
limitless opportunities that can be produced by utilizing IDF. The
printed results are sophisticated graphics which provide distinctive and
eye-catching products for our customers.”
Berry Plastics was also awarded a Silver in the Narrow Web Screen
Metalized category for its label produced for the Gillette Fusion
ProGlide. In addition, the Company earned a Bronze in the Narrow Web
Screen Film category for its label produced for Jergens Natural Glow
