WorldStar Packaging Award 2020

16. December 2019

Bischof + Klein is one of the winners of the WorldStar Packaging Awards 2020. B+K applied to compete for the internationally renowned award with its B+K Twister Plus® wicketed bag with 30 percent post-consumer resin (PCR).

This was preceded by the company's winning the German Packaging Award in the category of sustainability.

Significantly less new plastic material is used to manufacture the award-winning wicketed bag. This is achieved by reducing the wall thickness and using regranulate. Wicketed bags are typically used as collective packaging for toilet paper. In the award-winning B+K packaging, the PE recyclate is embedded in a co-extruded film in the inner layer. A recyclate content of 30 % is therefore achieved in the overall design without any restrictions on the functionality of the packaging.

This year, the jury met during the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) board meeting in Bali. The festive award ceremony is scheduled to take place on May 8th 2020 in Düsseldorf during the packaging industry's international specialist trade fair, the Interpack.
