EcoFishBox™ won Sustainability Awards

The world’s best packaging for 2017 has been selected: EcoFishBox, developed by Kalaneuvos and Stora Enso, won the World Packaging Organization’s WPO Sustainability Award. The package was also awarded the WorldStar Award.

The jury of the competition chose EcoFishBox™ as the winner of the WorldStar Sustainability Award, the best sustainable packaging compilation among the 292 packaging solutions participating in the competition. The solution was also awarded the WorldStar Award. EcoFishBox™ is meant for packing fresh and processed products in shops and restaurants.

Kalaneuvos started packing fresh fish fillets into the fibre-based boxes made of renewable material. EcoFishBox™ is space-saving and is supplied as a flat corrugated board. Its material is completely recyclable, and it saves on packaging waste handling. EcoFishBox™ can replace previously used polystyrene boxes for the same purpose.

WorldStar is an annual competition for world packing organizations. The competition prizes were granted at the WPO event in Düsseldorf, Germany, at the world’s largest packaging trade fair Interpack.
