CINCINNATI, OH (April 2, 2008) - Michelman, Inc, the leading supplier of paper plate coatings, has attained kosher certification on its Plate Kote™ Series, giving its customers further assurance of quality and application flexibility. All coatings manufactured at the company’s Cincinnati headquarters meet FDA guidelines and have been kosher-certified by the Orthodox Union (OU), the world’s most recognized and trusted kosher trademark.Michelman’s Plate Kote Series is a clear overprint varnish that offers superior food release characteristics, and resists the seepage of moisture into the paper substrate. This allows manufacturers to produce a more durable, high gloss, and aesthetically pleasing paper plate that consumers prefer. For the benefit of the manufacturer, the coating also exhibits excellent release in the plate forming process. “The availability of our OU-certified kosher food package coatings has definitely raised the bar for the coating industry,” stated Jennifer Reed, Michelman’s Global Regulatory Analyst and acting OU Kosher Coordinator. “Many coatings used in food contact applications are considered kosher solely based on the fact the raw materials used to make them are not of animal-origin. We made the decision to pursue true certification by an independent authority. This provides our customers total assurance that the kosher status of our coatings is in no way compromised.”About MichelmanMichelman is a global manufacturer of performance-enhancing barrier, functional, and decorative coatings for flexible film packaging, paperboard, and corrugated boxes; and additives and modifiers for many industries including coatings, inks, composites, and construction products.Michelman Global Headquarters9080 Shell RoadCincinnati, OH 452361-800-333-1723 (US & Canada); (513) 793-7766 (Worldwide)(513) 793-2504 (Fax)www.michem.com
