The Wal-Mart Scorecard is due to be implemented on February 1, 2008 and most manufacturers have failed to complete their scorecards fearing poor results. What's the risk of not completing your scorecard? According to a Wal-Mart spokesperson, "if a supplier's data is not on file with Wal-Mart by February 1, 2008, they may not be eligible to be considered as a supplier." AVC's patented and patent pending innovative sustainable packaging systems can change Scorecard results significantly.
The Scorecard has formulas favoring package weight reduction and recyclables. The bottom line is that to move up on your scorecard you must use less packaging materials, use more effective materials and source these materials more effectively. Wal-Mart has committed to reduce packaging content by 5 percent by 2013.
AVC has concentrated on sustainable packaging for years with a goal to produce packaging products that are environmentally sensitive, using recycled materials, reducing plastic content, eliminating non-recyclable materials and yet are able to produce an even more aesthetically pleasing package.
AVC the "one stop" solution provider with packing experience going back over 30 years, is a member of the Wal-Mart/Sam's Packaging Sustainable Value Network and a packager to fortune 500 manufacturers and retailers who have implemented AVC's innovative packaging solutions as their new packaging format.
In 2006 AVC announced its patent pending Environmental Rigid Blister (ERB TM) package, an eco-friendly cost effective alternative to the standard clamshell. Made from a combination of plastic, blister board and corrugated, the ERB reduces the plastic usage from old style clamshells by over 50%, replaces PVC with eco-friendly PET, avoids cross-contamination, and allows for 100% recycling of all the packaging components. Furthermore the attractive design reduces cubic utilization, product package ratios and transportation costs.
In 2007, AVC continued with groundbreaking environmental packaging products introducing the patent pending Polypropylene Reusable Retail Package (pprrp). The pprrp was the next logical step up from AVC's rrp which now used a one piece injection molded reusable retail package to house and package single or multi-component products. The pprrp has been adopted by many retailers for this current Black Friday sales period.
