Boardio® wins two AmeriStar awards

AR Packaging’s fibre-based barrier container, Boardio® was recognised for two applications of the innovative packaging system in collaboration with Club Coffee and Perfetti Van Melle at the recent AmeriStar awards.

The two award winners were for a recyclable paper-based can for coffee in collaboration with Club Coffee in the Beverage, Non-Alcoholic category. secondly, a recyclable paper bottle for gum and confectionery in collaboration with Perfetti Van Melle was awarded in the Food, Shelf-stable category.

“I and the team at AR Packaging Systems are excited to see our efforts to develop a sustainable and attractive paper container for the circular society are now paying off and being well recognised,” says Jonny Olsson, Director for the Systems Division at AR Packaging. “We are delighted to collaborate with companies such as Club Coffee and Perfetti Van Melle, who turn their commitments to environmental responsibility into real long-term strategic actions when choosing packaging solutions. Boardio® is a great solution from all aspects and we look forward to help more companies put it on the market.” The AmeriStar Awards, organised by IoPP (the Institute of Packaging Professionals) in the US, is one of the industry’s oldest and most prestigious design competitions.”
