A. Hatzopoulos S.A. is proud to announce that we have succeeded in winning the ultimate packaging accolade, a WorldStar 2024 award in the category of “Packaging Materials and Components” for our sustainable “X-LOOP™ | PCR pouch packaging solution”.

X-LOOP™ refers to the novel range presented by the company in 2023, which contains materials that incorporate bio-circular and post-consumer recycled – PCR plastics, thus actively contributing to close the loop on flexible packaging. With stand-up pouches being the most trending flexible packaging application, we have designed and brought to market an innovative X-LOOP™ solution dedicated to cover the needs of this packaging segment. The novel X-LOOP™ | PCR pouch packaging solution from this new product family is a laminate constructed from PCR films, reaching adjustable rates of post-consumer recycled content in its formulation up to 70%. This way it promotes plastics circularity, while ensuring full performance, absolute convenience, protection and shelf-appeal for various dry / liquid products.

We are thrilled to have been recognized with this award, which is further proof of our dedication to providing packaging solutions that will define the sustainable future of flexible packaging.
