Cascades Launches an Innovative Isothermal Packaging Technology and Inaugurates a New Production Site

KINGSEY FALLS, QC – Cascades continues to roll out its expansion plan into the isothermal packaging market by enhancing its meal box line with technology 20% more efficient than its existing home delivery solution, and by operating a new production facility in York, Pennsylvania.

Cascades is improving its northbox® isothermal packaging solution line by adding an innovative technology: the northbox® XTEND™. The composition of this meal box creates a moisture barrier that helps maintain insulation rigidity. Packaging keeps food fresh during long transit periods and in areas with high temperatures, and requires less ice. Designed with the circular economy in mind, this packaging solution is made from recycled cardboard and identified as recyclable by an external lab and pre-qualified by How2Recycle. The northbox® XTEND™ software is a new addition to the extensive and customizable northbox® line, which has been optimized to deliver operational gains to customers.

The company is also commissioning a new production site for its Northbox® product line: Cascades Enviropac – York. This is the second facility in four months to be opened to support Cascades’ growth in the isothermal packaging solutions market. After operating its inaugural location in the western United States, in Tacoma, Cascades is now expanding its presence in the East, getting closer to its clients and strengthening its position as a strategic partner throughout North America. The first phase of this expansion involves the installation of a modern and highly automated packaging line for the production of isothermal boxes, including the new northbox® XTEND™.

“We are pleased to innovate with our customers to offer them a diverse range of high-performance, adaptable thermal packaging solutions. Since 2007, recycled carton meal boxes have been perfected to meet operational and environmental challenges,” said Luc Langevin, President and Chief Operating Officer of Cascades Specialty Products Group. Our plan for market expansion is being rolled out as expected, reinforcing our role as a strategic partner working in close proximity to clients.

These announcements are part of Cascades’ strategic plan that supports its growth as a leader in North America in sustainable packaging, while contributing to the achievement of one of the goals in its Fourth Sustainability Action Plan: to have 100% of its manufactured packaging recyclable, compostable or recyclable. use by 2030.
