The oxygen absorbers are designed to protect moist or semi-moist packaged foods and other products against mold growth, color change, rancidity, and loss of nutritional value.
They are adhesive backed with a flat, flexible format, with an ultrathin design, making them seemingly invisible.
The solid format works against loose contaminants coming in contact with products, ideal for packaged deli meats.
The Gold Medal is chosen from 500 entrants so companies can showcase their award-winning products during the fair.

Other products on show from Multisorb include its FreshPax CR oxygen absorbers as part of its MAPLOX program for case-ready fresh meat, FreshPax Oxygen Absorbing Packets, and Fresh Card Oxygen Absorbing Cards.
