25 Years of European Carton Excellence Awards – And Not a Crease in Sight

13.09.2021 - Fairs

The European Carton Excellence Awards (ECEA) were launched 25 years ago. Since then cartonboard designs that have been particularly beautiful, innovative and sustainable were annually recognized with these illustrious awards.

An entertaining live E-vent - despite the pandemic
The anniversary edition of the Pro Carton and ECMA European Carton Excellence Awards took place online due to the pandemic and, as a result, reached a large and diverse audience. The E-vent, which was broadcast live, was attended by executives and decision-makers as well as brand owners, students, teachers, media and of course all of the friends and staff from Pro Carton and ECMA.

Fruit basket -  MM Packaging awarded 
Whether it’s apricot or plum season, the stone fruit basket from MM Neupack can handle them all. Whereas in the past fruit and vegetables were often offered in hard plastic trays in the supermarkets, today you can find more and more clever cartonboard packaging-solutions. Especially with natural foods, customers expect plastic-free solutions that still protect the product without harming the environment and rightly so. An excellent way to do this is with the stone fruit basket made from Browncolor cartonboard. The expert jury of the ECEA was of the same opinion and honoured the project with the Food & Drink Packaging, Recycled Fibre Award.
 

Browncolor – the name speaks for itself
The Browncolor recycled cartonboard is produced at MM Board & Paper’s Kolicevo mill in Slovenia and then converted into functional stone fruit baskets in Lower Austria, at MM Packaging’s Neupack site. This is how the name speaks for itself: the strong recycled Browncolor cartonboard impresses with its natural colour that conveys environmental awareness at the point of sale. As well as this, the cartonboard wins consumers over with its pleasant feel, high stability and good printing properties, thanks to the specially prepared top surface.
