  • The SBB surface provides for superior print durability vs. traditional L board.
  • Easily printable with traditional offset or flexo printing processes.
  • SBB food contact surface offers the use of FDA approved inks or polymer pigments.
  • SBB film can be pigmented any color on the bacon-contact side with white on the reverse side for easy printing of advertising graphics.
  • Synthetic bacon boards are offered in standard colors of white/white, black/white or yellow/white.
  • Exclusive corporate colors can be produced if volume thresholds are met.
  • One study estimates that more than 48 million pounds of traditional bacon L board goes to U.S. landfills annually. Converting to a more recycled board solution would have a positive impact on the environment.

  • Guaranteed non-wicking material creates a more appealing presentation.
  • Soft corners prevent leakers during the packaging process.
  • SBB can withstand the 87,000 PSI pressure of HPP (hyperbaric pasteurization process) without impacting the board's physical properties or print integrity.
  • The polypropylene material does not absorb moisture or bacon grease which keeps the visual presentation crisp and vibrant.
