Orkla and LiquiGlide sign exclusive licensing agreement
Orkla has signed a licensing agreement with LiquiGlide  to use its slippery coating for mayonnaise products in the Nordics, Germany, Benelux and the Baltics.

The product launch is expected within the coming months with a further announcement in September. 

Second major public customer announcement

Dave Smith, CEO, LiquiGlide, told FoodProductionDaily, Orkla has a specific product in mind for the launch, but it cannot announce the name at this time. 

The licensing agreement with Orkla is a great accomplishment,​” he said. 

This is our second major public customer announcement (after Elmer’s Products), and the first time we’re announcing a food packaging customer. 

It sends a message that major CPG companies see the value in our technology, and they trust in the safety of our coatings for their customers.​ 

We’re excited to see LiquiGlide-coated mayo packaging on store shelves, and we’re looking forward to working with Orkla on custom slippery coatings for other products​.” 

Wet, slippery coating

LiquiGlide is a permanently wet, slippery coating that enables viscous products to slide easily from packaging, eliminating food waste and providing a better consumer experience.

The customized coating for Orkla’s mayonnaise products is made from natural ingredients.  

We see this as a valuable strategic relationship and hope it will expand to additional brands and products in Orkla's portfolio,​” added Smith. 

We’ll continue to focus on the consumer packaging goods space, as that’s where we’ve seen the most interest to date. ​ 

We’re already working with some of the biggest name brands in the CPG industry globally, and we continue to have advanced licensing conversations, discussing exclusivity for specific fields or market segments​. 

Beyond consumer packaged goods, we’re speaking with companies in the medical, industrial and oil and gas industries, exploring strategic partnerships in those fields.”
