Smurfit Kappa Receives PPI Award For Innovative Eco Tray

The PPI Award in the ‘Advances and Innovation in Sustainable Packaging’ category recognizes Smurfit Kappa’s ongoing commitment to sustainable packaging. The PPI (Pulp & Paper International) Awards are the only global awards dedicated to recognising achievements in the pulp and paper sector. 

Smurfit Kappa won in the ‘Advances and Innovation in Sustainable Packaging’ category for the Eco Tray, a corrugated tray that offers a green alternative to traditional polystyrene and plastic trays.

As consumer packaging in the fruit and vegetable market has traditionally been dominated by polystyrene trays, Smurfit Kappa developed a thermo formed corrugated board solution which can be applied to this market as well as other sectors. The Eco Tray is 100% recyclable, optimises storage space and leads to savings on CO2 emissions. Moreover, as it is suitable for flexographic print, high quality print and pre-print, it can be customised to fit the customer’s wishes.

Gary McGann, Group CEO of Smurfit Kappa, comments: “I would like to congratulate the Smurfit Kappa design team with winning this PPI Award. It shows our on-going commitment to provide our customers with sustainable packaging. The Eco Tray is an excellent example of how the expertise and experience of our employees at Smurfit Kappa can result in innovative packaging solutions which have clear benefits for the environment.”
