VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR CRYOVAC FOR ITS EXCELLENCE AS A SPARTANBURG COUNTY CORPORATE CITIZEN IN JOB CREATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND TO CONGRATULATE THE COMPANY ON THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF A REVOLUTIONARY FOOD-PACKAGING PRODUCT.
Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly is pleased to learn that Cryovac, which long has proven itself a friend to the Palmetto State in job creation and economic development, is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of a revolutionary food-packaging product for frozen whole turkeys; and
Whereas, headquartered in Duncan since the mid twentieth century, Cryovac has earned its place as the leading food-packaging company in the world. For more than half a century, the company has been developing technologies to keep food fresh, better tasting, and more accessible; and
Whereas, its packaging technologies can be found across shopping aisles worldwide, extending shelf life and freshness of perishable food, heightening merchandising appeal, and providing options for meals that are quick and easy to prepare. In addition, Cryovac provides innovative food-packaging formats for use in commercial kitchens; and
Whereas, in 1962, the company introduced a cutting-edge package for frozen whole turkeys, and today nearly all frozen turkey is sold in advanced variations of this vacuum bag. Cryovac's packaging innovation made it possible for turkey processors to fresh-freeze whole turkeys and turkey parts, store them for many months, and transport them for long distances. As a result, turkey became an increasingly popular food choice, not only during the holidays but also year round; and
Whereas, grateful for Cryovac's fine corporate citizenship and longtime commitment to Spartanburg County and the State of South Carolina, the General Assembly extends warmest congratulations to the company on its exceptional accomplishments and best wishes for continued success in the future. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize and honor Cryovac for its excellence as a Spartanburg County corporate citizen in job creation and economic development, and congratulate the company on the fiftieth anniversary of a revolutionary food-packaging product.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Mr. Karl Deily for the company.
