Finnish start-up company Jospak has created a board-based tray packaging that contains up to 85% less plastic than a regular plastic alternative. The company’s innovation is a high-barrier board-based tray suitable for diverse food products which are currently packed in plastic.

The Jospak tray consists of a board-based tray and a separate multi-layer barrier film. The tray is hermetically sealed with lidding film, which makes the tray suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). It is compatible with existing automatic packaging process in the food industry.  After use, the consumer can peel away the inner film liner and dispose the materials in the dedicated waste streams or recycle.

Jospak’s board-based food tray provides a large printable surface which enables better means for brand and product messaging, standing out from the competition, and shelf visibility. It also helps in avoiding the use of the additional stickers and paperboard sleeves and therefore reduces packaging materials and related costs overall.

The company announced this week that its innovation was named as a winner of WorldStar 2019 Award

“Receiving the WorldStar Award means recognition for the hard work that we have done to come up with this product. We are positive that this award will make our packaging solutions more known for international markets “, states Ms. Tarja Heikkilä, managing director of Jospak.

Jospak Oy was founded in 2014 to develop and commercialise a new packaging solution for the food industry.

The company has recently announced that its board-based tray packaging was named as a winner of WorldStar 2019 Award.

“Receiving the WorldStar Award means recognition for the hard work that we have done to come up with this product. We are positive that this award will make our packaging solutions more known for international markets “, states Ms. Tarja Heikkilä, managing director of Jospak.

WorldStar Awards are based on the judges’ consensus that a packaging is superior in its category and market and better in its class in execution or innovation by comparison to others. The judging panel consists of country representatives from WPO and one representative from the International Packaging Press Organisation. In October 2018 the panel gathered in Jinan, China to judge 319 packaging projects from 35 countries. The award ceremony will take place in Prague in May 2019.
