Food & Beverage Packaging Materials

Food Packaging Materials Keep Foods Secure, Reduce Waste

DuPont packaging materials protect the flavor and quality of all kinds of food and beverages, while helping reduce packaging waste and spoilage.

Together with converters, brand owners, and equipment manufacturers, DuPont designs and develops innovative food packaging materials. Our solutions are used for beverages, dairy and cheese, snacks, cereals and other dry foods, meats and seafood, and ready-to-eat meals.

Our advanced food packaging materials deliver the functional, aesthetic and sustainability benefits our customers — and their customers — demand.

Peelable lidding sealants and easy-open solutions lock in flavor and are leak-free, durable, and easy to open. Coextrudable tie resins maintain packaging structural efficacy and barrier properties throughout distribution. On the sustainability front, our high-performance materials help minimize packaging, lower shipping costs through weight reduction and downgauging, and help reduce waste and food spoilage. All at an affordable cost.
