SCHOMBERG, ON - (Marketwired, Feb 2, 2016) - HDM20 Corporation, provider of a patented, high purity refined mineral which can offer extended shelf-life for food products, and Wikoff Color Corporation, which provides inks, coatings and specialty chemicals to packaging and labeling businesses in retail, commercial and industrial markets, have entered into an agreement for the use of HDM20 in Wikoff formulated packaging products.
Within the grocery and retail space, the ability to keep produce fresh and preserved longer is an ongoing challenge. The longer the produce can be kept within the acceptable condition for consumption, the more produce is sold and the percentage of spoilage and ultimately waste is reduced significantly. These costs can be very significant with current fresh produce spoilage approaching 30-40% in many cases. Our products are engineered for extended shelf-life applications.
Wikoff utilizes HDM20 -- a GRAS rated refined mineral with its high pH, in formulated packaging coatings for fresh produce throughout the transporting and retail supply chain for its customers. With incorporation of HDM20 in its packaging structure, the shelf life of the produce is extended considerably beyond current regular package designs.
For Wikoff, it is an excellent opportunity to extend its specialty product offerings to both current and new prospective customers by providing a value-added, differentiated offering unique to the marketplace. For the Produce Transporters, Packagers and Retail Operators, this innovative product presents a significant opportunity to extend shelf-life, reduce spoilage and in turn reduce costs and overall waste.
