Further details on the award-winning packaging innovations:

Monoformable PP

Mono-formable PP is a recyclable,, high-barrier modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) solution created from mono-material polypropylene (PP). Featuring a printed top web and a complementary thermoformable semi-rigid bottom web, the fully recyclable packaging weighs around 30% less than a comparable polyester (PET) tray at the same thickness while offering the same high level of product protection. The innovative solution can substitute the industry standard of multi-material,, non-recyclable PET trays and is recyclable in existing recycling streams for mixed polyolefins.


RetortPouch Recyclable

RetortPouch Recyclable is able to withstand high temperatures during the retort process used in food preparation and is suitable for a wide range of applications in the ready-made food and pet food industries. It is made of polypropylene (PP)-based mono-material, offers exceptional shelf life,, and reduces potential food waste. Innovative packaging can replace complex multilayer unrecyclable packaging that uses aluminum or metallized layers to provide high-barrier food protection. The new mono-material retort packaging is fully recyclable, offering a solution that protects the product, provides exceptional shelf life for a mono-material solution,, and reduces potential food waste.


EasyTray offers protection and great presentation for fresh food produce. Easy to use on manual and automated filling lines, EasyTray contributes to a longer product shelf life and sustainable consumer choices by supporting the trend for smaller portions while avoiding food waste.


We designed the Mondi NoTamperBox to protect the security of products during transportation. The packaging design uses edge locks, and its easy wrap-around structure stops any tampering or damage to the product.

Corrugated-board Wedge

Our 100% reusable and recyclable corrugated-board wedge helps our customers store and transport their paper reels safely. It is a convenient and light-weight solution that prevents people from from getting splinters from wooden alternatives.


This corrugated packaging box has been specifically designed for cheese products. The TrapezeBox is sustainable, stands out from the crowd at the point of sale,, and offers an optimal display function. The new and improved one-piece packaging can be erected by machine, thus saving time and manual labor.


Working closely with Volvo, we created a corrugated packaging solution that safely and sustainably transports turbochargers. The customized cardboard interior has a unique composition that makes the cardboard stronger, more compact,, and ideal for transporting sensitive components despite its lightness. A turbocharger has been designed and entered into the competition in collaboration with APak AB.

Eco Multi Rack

Eco Multi Rack is a multifunctional, modular corrugated cardboard storage rack that can be configured to store store products of different sizes. Its individual elements can be easily adjusted and changed without the need to disassemble the entire rack.
