This prize, which aims to enhance the most innovative and eco-sustainable packaging solutions placed on the market in 2017 and 2018, was awarded to the DuoPack project developed by the company in the Cremonini group, a cutting-edge meat processing and transformation platform, with a range of branded and unbranded productions. Conai selected virtuous companies from across Italy according to the investments made in environmentally sustainable packaging. The Fiorani&C. Duopack was chosen because:
– it is 100% recyclable
– compared to the previous packaging, the weight of the plastic used was reduced, while guaranteeing the same safety standards and shelf life
– it is produced from between 90% and 100% post-consumer recycled raw materials (regenerated plastic bottles)
– the tray shape is designed to optimize the circulation of gas inside the container and exclude the risk of product oxidation (thus avoiding the need for a paper layer on the bottom of the package).
These social and environmental sustainability objectives demand significant financial investments, which Fiorani&C. considers necessary because: “We want to give an ethical meaning to the profits we make”.
