The jury honoured not just only the replacement of plastic, but also the use of recycled cartonboard for demanding premium packaging. WEIG-Karton won against strong competition from all over Europe.

The award ceremony was held during a major international congress for manufacturers of carton based packaging in Cannes in the south of France. Jürgen Schulz, Sales Director Cartonboard at WEIG, received the award together with Christoph Bader, managing partner of Fr. Schiettinger KG.

“This is the first time in WEIG’s history to win an award like this “, Jürgen Schulz said, “and the category sustainability is a perfect match because it is one of the most important topics for us. This clearly shows that we are on the right track with our products.”
