Congratulations to Paptic who, with its recyclable pouch to replace plastic in vegetable packaging, received the WorldStar award. Paptic is a fibre-based substrate intended to replace plastics in packaging. The lightweight material is soft, with excellent puncture and tear resistance and heat sealing properties. Marvaco proposed a simple and durable design for onion packaging by reducing ink consumption and the number of colours used in printing. Only three colours were used. With Flint Group’s water-based supply, the use of heavy metals was eliminated and waste minimized. Note also that ‘CradletoCradle Material Health’ certified inks were used. These inks are also certified for OK compost. 2022 was a good year for Paptic, headquartered in Espoo, Finland. The company had a turnover of more than 11 million euros.
