The award arrived for the valuable sustainability for the alternative to plastic laminated ice cream cups
In cooperation with Valuepap as structural designer, Cardbox Packaging in Wolfsberg has developed a perfect alternative to plastic laminated ice cream cups which are a common part of food packaging industry. This premium sundae pack is made of bio-coated cartonboard with a soft touch finish. It impresses with its design and is compostable according to EN 13432 due to the bio-coated materials used.
“It is always a big challenge to start a new project, but in Valuepap we are more than delighted working with Cardbox on such innovations. It is great to work on projects that we believe have a promising future.” explains Hans Pridal, managing director of Valuepap.
Cuckoo Ice Cream packaging: not only is the cup made from bio-coated cartonboard, but so are the lid and the paper seal. Therefore the whole packaging can be disposed without harmful effects on the environment, which is recently a popular customer demand.
A prestigious prize with the ice cream packaging, close to new developments for the market
“We are very excited that our ice cream packaging has been awarded with the prestigious prize from Worldstar. This award confirms that we are the right track with our development strategy. I can announce that we are closely to bring to market very impressive new developments with barrier coatings.” said managing director of Cardbox Packaging group, Klaus Hockl.
Cuckoo Ice Cream packaging, another award for the cup
Cardbox Packaging has entered WorldStar Packaging Awards for the first time, and certainly not for the last time. Moreover, Cuckoo Ice Cream has already been awarded with the European Carton Excellence Award 2019, in Innovations category.
The jury commented on that: “This could be a real game changer as the pack is made of a bio-coated cartonboard which also has a lovely soft touch feel, not often seen in the ice cream category. It is compostable due to the materials used.”
