BEYOND THE CATCH - how PAPACKS is replacing EPS boxes

A revolutionary change in seafood transportation is imminent and PAPACKS has also been nominated for sustainable coffee enjoyment

We at Papacks are delighted to be nominated for the prestigious Shop! D-A-CH Awards. This nomination recognizes our ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability in the field of retail marketing. As a member of the global network of Shop!, the leading center for “Marketing at Retail”, we see this nomination as recognition of our efforts to revolutionize the packaging industry in a sustainable way.

BEYOND THE CATCH - Icebox made of cast fiber for shipping seafood

Made entirely from renewable fiber raw materials, our Ice- and Fishbox sets new standards in terms of sustainability and environmental compatibility. Thanks to the use of FSC-certified raw materials and the significantly lower CO2 impact compared to conventional materials such as EPS, our box demonstrates an exemplary eco-balance. The insulating properties of the molded fiber guarantee the freshness of the seafood during transport. In addition, the design of the box enables versatile use and individual branding options for companies.

Coffee capsule made of cast fiber with plant-based barrier layer

With our molded fiber coffee capsule, we offer an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional capsules made of plastic or aluminum. The highlight is our specially developed, plastic-free PAPACKS Plant-Based Coating, which makes the capsule aroma-proof and at the same time protects the environment. The capsules are fully compostable and have a reduced CO2 footprint thanks to the use of renewable raw materials.

These nominations for the Shop! D-A-CH Awards reflect Papacks’ commitment to developing sustainable and innovative packaging solutions that not only protect the environment, but are also functional and aesthetically pleasing. As part of the influential Shop! network, we are motivated to actively shape the future of shopping and packaging.
