Innovative secondary packaging company TrakRap has beaten off competitors from across the globe to win the Best Manufacturing Technology award at the World Food Innovation Awards. The prestigious annual awards are open to entrants from all over the world, making them among the most fiercely competitive in the food and drink industry. The 2020 awards saw entries from more than 20 countries across its 28 categories, with TrakRap winning its category against competitors from France, the United States and China.

TrakRap won the award for its TrakRap Packaging System, a combination of its environmentally friendly packaging machine and innovative pack designs that provide cost effective secondary packaging solutions for UK food and drink manufacturers, with judges praising the System’s range of cutting-edge features.

Unlike traditional secondary packaging systems, the Industry-4.0 enabled TrakRap System completely eliminates the use of heat from the packaging process using an ultra-thin stretch film to ‘cold wrap’ products instead, reducing energy usage by as much as 90% and plastic usage and greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 70%.

Martin Leeming, CEO of TrakRap, said: “Receiving international recognition for our packaging System and the benefits it delivers is something we could only have dreamed of a few years ago. If food manufacturers are serious about reducing the amount of packaging they use and minimising their carbon footprint, they need to adopt new eco-innovations to help fight climate change as a matter of urgency.”
