Bemis Performance Packaging wins 2012 Global Packaging Award for Innovation

Wins special award for its Peel N’ Tear label for the brand Tum-E Yummies from BYB Brands.


The Peel N’ Tear label for the brand Tum-E Yummies from BYB Brands helped win a 2012 Beverage World Global Packaging Design for Bemis Company for its unique design.

Oshkosh, WI—Bemis Performance Packaging, a leading supplier of flexible packaging, pressure sensitive material and roll-fed labels, has received a special jury innovation design award from the 2012 Beverage World Global Packaging Design competition for its Peel N’ Tear label for the brand Tum-E Yummies from BYB Brands (a Coke Consolidated Division).

The Peel N’ Tear label is an extended roll-fed label providing a patented, perforated, removable coupon.

The back of the coupon portion is printed to convey a variety of information including variable gaming, cross-merchandising, new product launches, or rebates and discounts.

A full label remains on the bottle after the coupon is removed, meaning the UPC and deposit copy remain, allowing the bottle to pass through the redemption and recycling processes.

The Peel N’ Tear label provides a unique solution for small bottle labels. The peelable corner entices consumers to tear off the perforated coupon, revealing the gaming code that drives consumers to the product’s website.

“The Peel N’ Tear platform offers our customers a unique approach to bottle labeling and targeted communication with the end consumer. The concept was borne out of collaboration with our allied equipment partners, which together with Bemis print technologies delivered true innovation to the beverage market,” says J.B. Fisher, general manager – Beverage Segment of Bemis Performance Packaging. “Peel N’ Tear demonstrates Bemis’s commitment to the beverage industry, which is part of our active pipeline of secondary and primary packaging innovation targeted at this segment.”

The Beverage World Global Packaging Design Awards recognize the best in beverage packaging design around the world, with packaging judged on a variety of elements including graphic design and structural innovation.
