​Worldstar Award 2021
Lincoln & York's Recyclable Coffee Packaging Range receives international recognition

The recyclable packaging solutions, developed by A. Hatzopoulos S.A. for the UK coffee roaster, have been awarded with the prestigious WorldStar Award 2021. In partnership with Lincoln & York, last year we brought to the UK market a complete all-PE recyclable coffee packaging range. Based on the X-CYCLE PE concept, the high-performance films were designed to preserve the coffee aroma & flavor and at the same time to be recyclable through the recycling stream in the UK for polyethylene. Having already received the 2020 GOLD Greek Packaging Award, this new recyclable coffee packaging range is now gaining the highest level of international recognition!

CEFLEX | Guidelines & Recommendations

CEFLEX | Guidelines & Recommendations
Flexible packaging is an important part of our modern world. Mainly made of plastic films, it helps ensure products reach consumers safe and fresh, preserving nutrients, taste, and quality. Being very light and thin, flexible packaging materials reduce the impact of transportation, reduce waste of the goods they protect and usually use far less material than alternative packaging options.

Minimising product and packaging waste with low weight and volume is key in a circular economy. But an equally important objective is to design flexible packaging so that it will be correctly disposed of, collected, and efficiently sorted into suitable material fractions for recycling. These sorted materials must be recyclable into ‘new’ ones that can be used in market applications, displacing virgin material.
