In anticipation of the upcoming edition of the world’s most important trade fair  for  the  packaging  sector  and  related  processing  industries,  which  is taking  place  from  4  to  10  May  2017,  interpack  is  cooperating  with  the World   Packaging   Organisation   (WPO). 

Search for suppliers of similar products in the Packaging Network.


  Within   the   scope   of   this cooperation,  the WPO  has  extended  its  celebrated WorldStar  Awards to include  the  category  “SAVE  FOOD  Packaging  Awards”.  The  WorldStar Awards  commend  best-practice  approaches  that  have  already  proven themselves  on  the  national  level,  and  the  awards  will  be  presented  at  a ceremony during interpack 2017.
“We  are  giving  the  WorldStar  Awards  a  platform  in  keeping  with  the standing  of  these  celebrated  awards.  After  all,  in  terms  of  innovation density and internationality, no other event can rival interpack worldwide,” says   Bernd   Jablonowski,   Global   Portfolio   Director   Packaging   & Processing at Messe Düsseldorf. 
“We  are  delighted  to  be  able  support  the  idea  of  SAVE  FOOD  with  an award.  Good  packaging  can  of  course  go  a  long  way  towards  reducing food loss and wastage,”  stresses Dr Johannes Bergmair,  Vice President Sustainability & Food Safety at the WPO.
SAVE FOOD Packaging Awards
The  SAVE  FOOD  Packaging  Awards  recognise  packaging  solutions distinguished  by  their  capacity  to  reduce  food  loss  and  wastage  –  for instance, by prolonging the packaged product’s shelf life or with intelligent concepts for portioning or protecting the contents of packages once they have  been  opened.  In  the  adjudication  of  the  submissions,  it  is  also important  that  the  package’s  production  is  resource-efficient  and  makes use  of  as  little  packaging  material  as  necessary.  Overall,  associations
from  more  than  15  countries  are  participating  –  including  ones  in  Africa and the Middle East – in the staging of the awards. These are choosing national winners in a variety of categories in advance of interpack 2017.

Honours  will  be  going  to  retail  and  transport  packages,  among  other things.
The  national  winners  will  then  be  competing  at  interpack  2017  for  the WorldStar Award in the SAVE FOOD category and will be exhibited at the “innovationparc” special show, which will again, following on from 2014, be devoted to the topics associated with SAVE FOOD.
