We are proud to announce that we have won the ultimate packaging award for the 2nd year in a row at this year’s competition organized by the World Packaging Organisation -WPO! Our “Paper Alternative” technology is a Worldstar Winner 2019 in the Packaging Materials category.

The Paper Alternative we supply is designed to simulate perfectly the visual and haptic effect of kraft paper. Without any structure, barrier or graphic elements limitation, this flexible option is the sustainable alternative to paper-based laminates, while it still gives off the natural, handmade vibe of paper, boosting the brand’s shelf-appeal to consumers.

The Hatzopoulos film provides multiple other benefits, including superior film efficiency during packaging, increased productivity, and weight- and material related savings. It brings the ultimate paper look and touch, interacting with the shoppers’ 5th sense, being able to adapt to any product protection, safety and brand marketing requirement.

The Perfect Paper Look can be applied on any film structure, metalized or transparent, with optional window integration to enable product visibility.

Numerous tailor-made solutions to adopt the novel technology to your pack are available upon request.
