Sulapac won the Luxe Pack in green Award in the Packaging Solution category, while Groupe Pochet was the jury's choice in the Responsible Initiative category.
“Luxe Pack in green showcases sustainable development to meet the needs of an entire profession,” explain the show’s organisers.
“Having become the benchmark event, Luxe Pack in green unveils the best packaging innovations and solutions, along with initiatives demonstrating the commitment to sustainable development of the manufacturers exhibiting at Luxe Pack Monaco.”
Luxe Pack in green Awards were this year presented in conjuction with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
The Foundation will offer the winners support from its scientific and technical committee, to consolidate the work they have done and enable them to benefit from its international network, say Luxe Pack organisers.
Spotlight on the winners
Sulapac was the winner of the Luxe Pack in green Award in the packaging solution category, with its Sulapac® premium eco-packaging.
Here, from Luxe Pack organisers, is why the innovation won:
Sulapac® is a brand-new, entirely biodegradable packaging material composed of wood and natural binders.
Drawing on research work done in the fields of biosciences and the development of biomaterials, Sulapac® can be serial-produced using the traditional techniques of plastic-moulding via injection, extrusion and blow-moulding. It has mechanical properties that are comparable to those of plastic.
It is water and oil-resistant, and offers an excellent oxygen barrier for protecting the product.
Sulapac® has a small carbon footprint. This environmentally-friendly, wood-based design also offers reduced costs when compared to bioplastics, making Sulapac® a profitable alternative with multiple end uses.
Groupe Pochet was the jury's choice in the category: "CSR approach".
Again, from Luxe Pack organisers, is why Groupe Pochet won:
Groupe Pochet will be celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2023. With an eye toward the future and sustained by its history, it has implemented an ambitious transformation programme.
The commitments defined under the banner: "Ambition 2023" aim to make Maison Pochet the world's leading high-end multi-materials packaging company for perfume and beauty products.
To achieve this objective, a robust investment plan has been rolled out, to reinforce its inventiveness, the excellence of its multi-materials know-how, the commitment of its teams, and its corporate social responsibility.
It is this global approach, structured around four pillars presenting costed, dated and substantiated commitments, which won the approbation of the jury.
