The third annual “PackTheFuture – The Sustainable Plastic Awards” ceremony was held May 9th, 2017 in Bad Homburg, Paris. Competing among other European based companies was Schaumaplast, winning the Save Food Category. This category was very popular in competition due to plastic and flexible packaging, providing ideal solutions to keep food fresher for longer.
The PackTheFuture competition exemplifies the responsible processes being developed by the plastic and flexible packaging industries. Half of all entries were in the Ecodesign category (recyclability, reduction at source, weight reduction). Social benefits are also a core concern for the sector’s companies and many innovations in the contest focused on ease of opening which is a crucial feature in a society with more and more elderly people.
Schaumaplast is an international foam manufacturer originated in Germany. Plymouth Foam and Schaumaplast formed a partnership in August 2016.
On behalf of Plymouth Foam, we congratulate Schaumaplast on a much deserved success received at PackTheFuture. The award appropriately reflects the dedication and well deserved recognition in the EPS industry.
