PackTheFuture

Sustainable plastic packaging spotlighted in PackTheFuture's awards list

Published on - updated on

The notion of "the right packaging” has taken on its full meaning with the winners of the 5th edition of PackTheFuture, the competition organised by ELIPSO and IK, and of which ALL4PACK is a partner. 

The aim of PackTheFuture, first announced in 2014, is to make the innovative potential of plastic packaging better known throughout Europe. This European award offers the member companies of ELIPSO and IK an ideal platform for promoting the sustainability of their packaging solutions.

Rendezvous at ALL4PACK

With 58 entries, 14 nominees and 10 winners, European companies are once again testifying to their dynamism and, above all, to a strong spirit of innovation. Packaging is evolving, and the perception of it is changing. The challenges of preservation, protection and ecodesign are once again highlighted. The topic of sustainability is more and more at the heart of the strategies, as shown by the high number of entries in the "Ecodesign" category of the competition. 

The outcome is therefore positive for PackTheFuture! he competition, which started on September 23, 2019, was disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but this does not divert it from its objectives: as much packaging as necessary, as little as possible. The award ceremony that was to be held in Interpack (Düsseldorf) in May could not take place due to the postponement of the exhibition.  ALL4PACK will have the pleasure of welcoming the winners of PackTheFuture on 24 November at Paris Nord Villepinte.
