We're delighted to announce that our Recyclable Coffee Packaging (developed by A. Hatzopoulos S.A.) has been awarded the Packaging Excellence Award at the 2021 Worldstar Global Packaging Awards.

Since 1970, the World Packaging Organisation has been organizing WorldStar awards and providing awards to numerous packs from all around the world. The WorldStar Competition is one of the major events of the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) and is the pre-eminent global award in packaging. WordStar illustrates the continual advancement of the state of packaging design and technology and creates a living standard of international packaging excellence from which others may learn.  Each year WPO is recognizing the best of the best in packaging innovations from across the globe. The objective of WPO in organising WorldStar is to increase awareness on the importance of packaging in having a better life and to recognize the innovation and efforts of brand owners, designers, students and branding agencies  for creating packaging solutions of the future and in responding to new  challenges and global trends such as sustainability, hygiene and other trends.

The high-barrier films, developed specifially in partnership with Lincoln & York, were designed to keep the roasted coffee fresh and to preserve its delicate aroma & flavor with the same twelve month shelf life as traditional coffee film. Based on the Hatzopoulos X-CYCLE PE concept, the final films are metal-free and their formulations are suitable for recycling through the recycling stream in the UK for LDPE and certified using the OPRL scheme

Available in different designs and formats - 1kg through to 250g retail bags and even single serve coffee bags , the Lincoln & York reyclable coffee range carries a clear environmental claim, in line with our CSR strategy.

In addition to their improved environmental claims, the innovative X-CYCLE PE packaging films have excellent properties, achieving very good performance using our various packaging machines and 100% compatibility with recyclable degassing valves. The final packs’ matt look & feel as well as its resistance to puncture gives them the perfect look & format to attract and appeal to brands that are looking to connect with today’s busy, demanding and environmentally-conscious consumer.
