10 winners announced for the PackTheFuture Award 2017

The ceremony for the 3rd “PackTheFuture – The Sustainable Plastic Packaging Awards”, organised by ELIPSO and IK, the trade organisations representing plastic & flexible packaging in France and Germany, has taken place in Düsseldorf at Interpack, the unmissable event for the packaging sector.

A FONDO

For the 3rd PackTheFuture, a competition that is now a European benchmark in the plastic and flexible packaging sector, 37 entries were received from Austrian, French, German, Italian and Spanish firms, reflecting the sector’s dynamism and innovation capability.

Once again, the competition attests to the responsible processes developed by the plastic & flexible packaging industry. Almost half of all entries were in the Ecodesign category

(recyclability, reduction at source, weight reduction), underscoring this major trend.
