We’re are delighted to announce that we have won a coveted British Sandwich Industry Award (The Sammies) in the Food to Go Innovation, packaging and equipment, category for its innovative Zest™ range.
The Sammies recognises excellence in the sandwich and food-to-go industry, awarding everything from the best sandwich, to the best sandwich packaging.
Colpac’s Zest™ range was developed in response to growing demand from food service operators today who are striving for packaging which ticks a multitude of boxes. From being eye-catching enough, while keeping a product fresh, to being fully recyclable while serving a growing range of food-to-go dishes.
Created from wood-pulp, the Zest™ range includes products in printed Kraft effect board for a natural look and is biodegradable and compostable within 90 days, to EN 13432 certification.
Aware that customers gauge the freshness of a product from its appearance, Colpac incorporated a recyclable ‘window’ into the packs, offering excellent visibility of the product within. Made from acetate, the film does not have the GM challenges associated with other compostable window materials, and the entire pack can be recycled as a single unit, without the need for separation.
Available in a range of different formations, the print and shape of the Zest™ range can be customised to suit individual requests. Suitable for any food service operator, from delicatessens, salad bars and bakeries, to coffee shops and canteens, Zest™ can be used to serve a multitude of dishes, from sandwich packs to tuck-top salad and wrap packs.
“We are delighted to have won this highly recognised award as it recognises our commitment to creating innovative food packaging.” Comments Neil Goldman, Managing Director of Colpac. “We keep our finger firmly on the pulse of current trends shaping the industry and our in-house team design packaging solutions to meet these demands. The Zest™ range is testament to this commitment and their excellent capabilities.”
