Constantia Flexibles Division Food has been awarded two Alufoil Trophies in the categories of Consumer Convenience and Product Protection. The Alufoil Trophy is organized every year by EAFA - the European Aluminum Foil Association.
“We are incredibly proud to be one of the winners. These recognitions highlight the way in which Constantia Flexibles uses the advantages of aluminum foil to create unique, new developments as well as innovative ideas to further improve existing products,” said CEO Alexander Baumgartner.
The Business Unit Processed Meat of Constantia Flexibles Division Food has developed and manufactured an aluminum tray with lid system: the “Ofen-Fleischkäs’ – ready for baking@home” for pre-cooked meat preparations. This packaging innovation enables the convenient preparation of a large number of different meat loaf recipes directly in the packaging. Another development of the Business Unit Processed Meat had the goal to develop a sterilizable lightweight container for pet food in compliance with the latest environmental and legislative requirements. The “Sustainer”, an aluminum foil container system, was specially developed as a BPA-free “BPA NIA” packaging for pet food (“NIA” – Not Intentionally Added). In addition, the aluminum surface of the painted and laminated container no longer has to be pretreated with chromium. The use of water-based instead of solvent-based ink systems is possible. “It also shows that despite technical challenges, modern and sustainable high-barrier packaging can be realized,” says Franz Planer / Senior Product Manager @ Constantia Teich GmbH.
