PTG Engineers Design Reusable Shipper

Premature infants begin life with struggles that full term babies don’t endure. While a mother’s breastmilk provides babies with excellent nutrition, they need additional nourishment. That’s where Prolacta Bioscience, based in California, helps. The company has provided human milk-based nutritional products to more than 63,000* fragile premature infants through out the world, helping them thrive. In2014, Prolacta challenged Packaging Technology Group (PTG) to design a reusable shipper for the safe, temperature-controlled transport of breastmilk.
