2013 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge Winners
Geyang Wu (pursuing a PhD in Food Science, major professor Byung-Kee Baik) and Chen Liu (pursuing a masters in Food Science, major professor Gulhan Unlu), both students in the School of Food Science, are the second place winners of the Flexible Packaging Association’s (FPA) 2013 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge. Their flexible packaging prototype for the SAFE YOGURT TUBE was selected from seven outstanding prototypes/bench samples submitted into the 2012 challenge. The judges found their flexible packaging solution to be a “good safety feature” enhancement to an existing flexible package. Their package will be displayed during the 2013 FPA Annual Meeting (February 26-28, 2013) in the 2013 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge Showcase. FPA will also highlight their winning entry in an upcoming issue of the FPA Update in Flexible Packaging Magazine. Congratulations to you, Geyang and Chen!
