Stefan Grote, executive VP of the Food Europe Division, says, “Congratulations to our head of R&D, Achim Grefenstein, and his team at our plant in Weiden, Germany. They have developed an innovative product in a short period of time that gives our customers a sustainable solution to use in flow packs for coffee, nuts, savory foods, as well as stand-up pouches for liquids.”

The company says revolutionary hot embossing technology is used to create the CompresSeal film that has a higher seal integrity than standard polyethylene and weighs up to 30% less, while still having the same thickness as standard packaging. In addition, it reportedly ensures not only tighter packs but also constant processing on packaging lines in winter and summer.

The German Packaging Award is an international industry and cross-material award, recognizing innovative and creative packaging ideas in ten different categories. Winners of the Packaging Award are automatically nominated for the WordStar hosted by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO). This year, there were 195 entries from 12 countries, and an independent jury made up of trade associations, companies, retail, and research chose the winners.
