Catcher Board MB12

Catcher Board MB12 is an innovative packaging technology developed by Smurfit Kappa proven to protect food from mineral oils.

MB12: Packaging technology developed by Smurfit Kappa is proven to protect food from mineral oils.

Catcher Board MB12 absorbs mineral oils that exist within the packaging and those that migrate from the outside environment. It uses absorption, a technique to trap mineral oils, to keep food save over time and to protect aromatics and taste - even if the packaging is folded or scratched.

MB12 was analysed by independent scientists at the University of Dresden for one year. It outperformed the six other available solutions that were tested. The university’s study found that MB12 was “…the only sample, which showed excellent barrier characteristics…”.

Moreover Eurofins, one of the world leaders in the food product testing and approved laboratory for food safety, tested MB12 to understand how effectively it protects food from mineral oils. They certified that no mineral oils were able to pass into the food.
