Safecompost, The Biodegradable Packaging Material by Safepack, Bags World Star Award 2013
Safepack Industries India, a specialty packaging group, has been recently awarded with World Star Packaging Award 2013. Safepack received this award for its biodegradable packaging material called Safecompost, which is a bio-polymer coated paper/board. The product was launched around 3 years back and now it has been recognised as one of the best in the industry.
The World Star Award is conferred by the World Packaging Organization, which illustrates the continual advancement of the state of packaging design and technology. The award selection goes through a stringent selection process. An expert panel of judges evaluates the award winners of various national and regional competitions around the world and select the awardee from that. Awards are based on the judges' consensus that a pack is superior in its category and is better in its class in execution or innovation as compared to others.
“We are honored that World Packaging Organization has recognized the value of our product, innovation and its contribution in offering sustainable packaging. Sustainability is an absolute necessity for the leading businesses of today. Safepack has made a public commitment of integrating sustainable development into our business model. This includes the concept of product responsibility, which starts with the raw materials and ends with the downstream effects of the products”, said Rajendra Tapadia, Chairman & Managing Director, Safepack Industries India.
Safepack’s Safecompost bio-polymer coating is a tailor-made polymer offering humidity, oxygen and grease barriers and sealability. Biopolymers used are based on raw materials that come from natural crops or from fossil sources, or combinations of these. This packaging material is easily compostable in nature if disposed in open and does not accumulate as a waste. Applications of Safecompost include portion packs for salt, sugar, pepper, tea, etc., disposable beverage cups for hot and cold drinks, paper wraps for ice creams, etc.
Safepack will be displaying its range of products, including Safecompost, at the upcoming Interpack 2014 conference happening in Germany. We invite you to visit us at Hall 07.1 / E37 at Interpack 2014 and have a look at the products. Our team of experts present at the booth will be happy to discuss the solution in detail with you.
