Advancing Food Packaging Technology with DuPont™ Surlyn®

In collaboration with DuPont, Mixpack is using Surlyn® to advance food packaging technology and help deliver healthy, safe food to remote areas in Mexico.

This two minute film tells the story of the decade-old vision of one man, Álvaro Novarro Garate, to advance food packaging technology to help deliver healthy, safe food to those less fortunate in the State of Chihuahua. As the film unspools, we learn how Surlyn®, a resin, helps enable a duo-chamber pouch package. This unique package safely separates purified water from infant formula, allowing it to withstand the distribution journey and lasts up to 12 months without refrigeration.

Through collaborating with DuPont and the State of Chihuahua, Mixpack is able to provide a healthy, safe food source to the Tarahumara Indians living in some of the most remote areas in Chihuahua State.
