FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–()–Canovation, a sustainable packaging innovation company, has been notified by Pack Expo that its CanReseal® technology is a finalist in two of four packaging categories in their Technology Excellence Awards. The competition showcases the best innovations in consumer-packaged goods in North America.

Pack Expo notified three finalists in each of its four award categories: Food/Beverage; General Packaging; General Processing; and Personal Care/Pharma. Canovation is a finalist in the Food/Beverage and Personal Care/Pharma categories. The company will learn final results during the September 27-29 Pack Expo Show in Las Vegas.

Canovation’s CanReseal product line was designed to meet the increasing global demand for sustainability in the packaging industry. CanReseal’s technology solutions adds threading just below the ubiquitous double-seam which allows a metal closure to be screwed into the top of the can to create an air and liquid tight seal. For the first time in history, CanReseal enables a regular metal can to now be a fully resealable, airtight and liquid tight sustainable packaging solution.

“Our entire team was very excited to learn we are finalists in two categories,” said Michele Merrell, Chief Marketing Officer. “We have been hard at work refining our CanReseal technology, which we feel will be a game changer for the consumer-packaged goods industry due to consumer demands for fully sustainable packaging. We look forward to the final results of the awards competition in September.”
