For the first time, the SAVE FOOD Initiative presented the SUSTAINABILITY DESIGN AWARD EGYPT to exhibitors at pacprocess MEA, which took place in Cairo from 12-14 December.
The SUSTAINABILITY DESIGN AWARD recognises solutions that have a positive impact on the environment, such as reducing CO2 emissions.
Gold was won by Teixeira Textil for "Teixeira Reverse", big bags made from recycled post-consumer resin. Silver went to Aluminios Mello for "Mello Cake Pan", a baking tin and retail packaging in one. Bronze went to LANG LASER System. The alternative process enables precise, clean and gentle processing of monofilms for food packaging.
UNIDO, the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) and FAO acted as a jury to evaluate the products and solutions submitted.
