CDF Corporation exhibiting IBC at the IDFA Ice Cream Technology Conference

CDF Corporation, a global company that specializes in the manufacture and sale of high quality pail, drum, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, will display an IBC tote liner at booth# 4 at the International Dairy Foods Association Ice Cream Technology Conference.

The International Dairy Foods Association Ice Cream Technology Conference will be held March 7th through the 8th at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa in Henderson, NV. The Ice Cream Technology Conference is the premier event for ice cream and frozen dessert professionals. This is the only meeting that focuses specifically on innovations in frozen dessert research, technology and new market trends. It provides unique opportunities to learn from experts on food safety, labeling and regulations that affect the industry.

Representing CDF Corporation will be National Account Executive Leigh Vaughn. Over 20 years of sales management experience in the flexible packaging industry, along with Leigh’s deep understanding of packaging, industrial applications and direct customer relationships allows her to offer a consultative approach in these areas.

CDF offers a wide assortment of flexible products to satisfy ice cream manufacturers’ needs, from pail liners and drum liners to a range of liner options for intermediate bulk containers, CDF has you covered.

Air-Assist® liners are specially designed for convenient dispense and improved evacuation of high viscosity products. The Air-Assist liner features a Form-fit liner with an attached air bladder. As the air bladder is inflated, it pushes against the Form-fit liner, forcing the viscous product out of the bottom dispense fitment, resulting in less residual product left in the liner.

Form-fit IBC (cube-shaped) liners provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners.

 

Six packaging trends for 2016

A new report called “Global Packaging Trends – A Fast-Forward Look at How the Next Generation of Packaging is Engaging Consumers in 2016” identifies six key trends set to transform the global packaging industry this year.

 

These trends include:

  • Digital revolution: The unique capabilities of digital printing have captured the attention of retailers, brand owners and packaging converters globally by creating opportunities to engage consumers on a local, personal and emotional level.
  • Phenomenal flexibles: While brands will still be looking to pouches to capture consumers’ attention, truly innovative brands will be looking to the next generation of rigid/flexible hybrids.
  • Show me the goods: Clear and concise information about ingredients, functional product attributes, or even convenience and safety must be communicated with total transparency.
  • More than “just” green packaging: Two key initiatives are beginning to resonate: a focus on alternative package material sources, and catering to the 63% of U.S. consumers who’ve stated that reusable and repurposable packaging is a key purchasing driver. Going forward, brands cannot afford to ignore this “ecologically friendly” purchasing driver as they develop their brand positioning and marketing strategies.
  • Size matters: If brand owners are to overcome the growing lack of consumer brand loyalty, they must create and deliver packaging that consumers see as right-sized for themselves, their families, and shifting use occasions.
  • Packaging mobile-ution: Moving forward, as brands clamor for innovative ways to engage and connect with shoppers, the mobile environment will become the new front line in the battle to win consumers’ hearts, minds, and wallets.

CDF’s Flexible Packaging Division Passes Food Safety Audit

CDF Corporation, a leading manufacturer of drum, pail, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, has passed a food safety audit for one of North America’s largest consumer packaged food and beverage companies.

An auditor from Quality Assured Solutions was contracted to perform a food safety audit on CDF’s Flexible Packaging division. The food safety audit evaluates many aspects of compliance with respect to food safety, sanitary working conditions, employee training and the proper handling of food products and packaging. CDF’s Flexible Packaging division passed the food safety audit with a score of 88.1 out of 100. With this score, CDF has been approved to supply IBC liners to this highly regarded global food processor.

During the 16 hour audit the Flexible Packaging division showed that many food safety items were already in place, there is an active GMP program in place and there is a working copy of a HACCP plan. The audit was based on the customer’s supplier expectation manual. The manual is the standard and the supplier is assessed against the standard.

“We have been working on many of the GSFI requirements as we get closer to our ultimate goal of SQF Level 2 Certification in 2016. It was reassuring to have a well-respected third party auditor verify we are on the right track,” said Tom McCarthy, Flexible Packaging General Manager.

The auditing company, Quality Assured Solutions, offers world class consulting to the food, beverage and confectionary industries on a domestic and international scope.food
