Cryovac Division of Sealed Air Corporation Honored With American Meat Institute 2006 Supplier of the Year Award

Thursday, October 5, 2006

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – The Cryovac Division of Sealed Air Corporation and its President Stuart Prosser today were honored with the American Meat Institute (AMI) 2006 Supplier of the Year Award. The award was presented during the AMI Annual Convention and Innovation Showcase, October 4-6, 2006, in Hollywood, Fla.

In presenting the award, AMI Chairman Robert Manly, executive vice president of Smithfield Foods, Inc., said that Cryovac has provided a host of packaging solutions that have ensured the integrity of our products and extended shelf life.

“Innovative Cryovac systems also have reduced packaging labor dramatically and offered ergonomic benefits by eliminating injury prone activities,” Manly said. “The company has been instrumental in helping a significant part of the industry convert to case ready packaging.”

At AMI, Cryovac’s team has supported AMI’s education programs through generous grants. In particular, Cryovac has funded Annual Meat Conference research, and the resulting findings have benefited AMI members and retail customers. Cryovac also has served the industry through membership on the AMI Supplier Committee and the Board of Directors.

Manly called Prosser a visionary leader with the ability to bring people together to solve problems and achieve goals.

“Perhaps most importantly, Cryovac views itself as an integral part of – not just a supplier to – the meat and poultry industry. This philosophy has made Cryovac a company that one can truly view as a ‘partner’ in achieving goals,” Manly said.
