11 June 2024

considered one of the biggest awards prestige of the country focused on theKlabin, the largest producer and exporter of packaging paper and sustainable paper packaging solutions in Brazil, had three packaging projects recognized in this year's edition of the EMBANEWS award, packaging industry. The winning cases were: the Bag-In-Box packaging for Bem-Te-Vi Olive Oil; the Bag-In-Box packaging for Suvinil Varnishes; and the packaging for the Aerocino Coffee Maker Kit - Nespresso Vertuo.

The Bag-In-Box packaging project for Bem-Te-Vi Olive Oil, winner in the Sustainability category - Sustainable Process for Reducing the Consumption of Raw Materials, Energy, Water, etc., brought advances in sustainability by proposing to be a alternative to olive oil packaging solutions made from materials such as plastic, glass or aluminum. As it is a corrugated cardboard box with the association of an internal plastic bag, the product has a high recyclability rate.

In the Sustainability - Design and Production of Ecological Packaging category, the winning project was the Bag-In-Box Packaging for Suvinyl Varnishes. Klabin and Suvinil came together to create a more sustainable alternative solution for packaging water-based varnishes, in a practical, safe and innovative way. Made from corrugated cardboard, the box has a thin plastic bag inside to hold the varnish, which can be removed after the product is finished, making the corrugated cardboard recycling process simple and facilitating sorting in recycling cooperatives.

The third awarded project was the Packaging for the Coffee Machine Kit + Aeroccino - Nespresso Vertuo, in the Innovation category. The packaging was developed to contain the original imported packaging of the machine and the milk frother packaging. As it is necessary to exchange the welcome kit, a box with assorted coffee capsules delivered inside the packaging as a courtesy, the project came with the difference of being aligned with the closing latches. This allows, on the assembly line, this box of capsules to be exchanged without the need to remove one package from another, speeding up the process and always keeping the capsules within their expiration date. The packaging also brought advances in printing, allowing it to be made directly on cardboard, which generates high printing quality, product safety and emphasis at the point of sale and in customized delivery actions.
