Eco Flexibles Bronze The Grocer

Eco Flexibles recognised at The Grocer Product & Packaging Awards 2023

Demonstrating its expertise and innovation in action, Eco Flexibles has received a Bronze Award recognition at The Grocer Product & Packaging Awards 2023.

Its Fusions packaging project, developed with fruit and nut snack brand Whitworths, was shortlisted under the Sustainable Pack of the Year – Optimisation category and received a Bronze Award at the event, held on 7thNovember at the Royal Lancaster, Hyde Park, London.

To create a visually impactful, fully recyclable and high-barrier polyolefin monopolymer pack, Eco Flexibles worked hand-in-hand with Whitworths, guiding the project from concept to completion. The design features consumer-friendly easy-open and re-close functions, and its inverted stabilo format with an extended fin seal ensures maximum shelf impact.

This latest achievement follows recognition at the UK Packaging Awards and Kantar’s Product of the Year Awards 2023.

Simon Buswell, Director at Eco Flexibles, expressed his delight, stating, “We are delighted to receive a Bronze Award at The Grocer Product & Packaging Awards 2023, for our project alongside the fantastic Whitworths team. For our business, it’s less about adding more trophies to the cabinet and more about showing the wider snack, food and FMCG sectors what’s possible in today’s packaging world.

“Today, brands don’t need to choose between quality and recyclability when it comes to flexible packaging; no compromise needs to be made. By developing monopolymers that actually enhance the quality and performance of packaging over non-recyclable mixed plastics, we’re making waves in the packaging field, and will continue to grow and evolve our capabilities accordingly.”
