Ecolean wins prestigious prize for packaging innovation SnapQuick

Ecolean_Packshot_1000ml_LREcolean’s new reclosing device SnapQuick has been awarded the Nordic packaging award Scanstar 2014. The award recognises outstanding packaging products from all five Nordic countries.

 
According to the Scanstar prize jury, SnapQuick is “A smart, new closing feature for what already is a successful, award-winning packaging product”. Furthermore, the jury also stated that “The solution is functional, combined with minimal material consumption. Smart and simple – well done!”.

 
“The Scanstar award proves that our dedication to innovation and smart packaging solutions is recognised by the industry. Awards like this only motivate us harder. We are determined to continuously introduce new solutions that use considerably less raw material than all other packaging solutions available on the market”, says Peter L Nilsson, CEO at Ecolean.

 
The SnapQuick reclosing device is integrated into the package, without compromising the functionality. Once the package is opened, it can be easily closed by just folding the top and giving it a light pinch. The reclosing device is made from PET and adds just 0,5 gram to the total package weight, which is substantially less compared to conventional reclosing devices such as screw caps.

 
The Nordic packaging award Scanstar has been organised since 1969
by the Scandinavian Packaging Association. In the jury this year were
representatives from IKEA, Stora Enso and Lilleborg. In 2009, Ecolean was awarded both the Scanstar and the global Worldstar award, for the packaging solution Ecolean Air Aseptic.
