Elopak presents breakthrough sustainable innovations at Gulfood Manufacturing
Elopak – a leading global supplier of sustainable carton packaging and filling equipment – is showcasing its latest sustainable packaging solutions and innovations at Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai. Visit the firm at Stand D4-20 (Hall 4).
Currently on-going at Dubai World Trade Centre, Gulfood Manufacturing is the Middle East’s leading food industry expo, bringing together experts, market leaders and brands to look at the latest packaging and manufacturing solutions in the food sector.
At the leading event, Elopak is showcasing its latest sustainable packaging solutions and innovations at stand D4-20 in Hall 4.
Sustainable product showcase
Such innovations include the Pure-Pak® eSense carton – a more environmentally friendly aseptic carton that can preserve product integrity, safety, and lifespan without requiring the commonly used aluminium layer. The elimination of this aluminium layer results in a reduction of the carbon footprint by 30 per cent, while facilitating full recyclability.
The company’s popular Natural Brown Board cartons are also on show at the event. The solution boasts a lower CO2 footprint than conventional cartons owing to reduced wood consumption and the elimination of the bleaching process, and it is both renewable and recyclable.
Attending the event, Elopak’s CEO Thomas Körmendi said his firm was delighted to be back engaging in-person with its peers and customers at the Gulfood Manufacturing. “At Elopak our investment in innovation has resulted in some exciting new product launches in the last two years,” he enthused. “It is exciting to have the opportunity to showcase our packaging solutions live and demonstrate how we work with brands to help them achieve their sustainability goals, as well as to communicate their credentials to the end consumer,” he added.
Strong commitment to growth in Middle East and Africa
In October Elopak announced its acquisition of Naturepak Beverage Packaging, the leading gable top fresh liquid carton and packaging systems supplier in the MENA region. With local production facilities in Morocco and Saudi Arabia and a presence in 16 countries, the move to purchase the business reflects Elopak’s strong commitment to growth in the Middle East and Africa.
