The design details are impressive. The unique cutting edge is made of cartonboard, so that the entire folding box can be disposed of without removing the cutting edge, which is necessary with aluminium or plastic cutting edges. It provides easy, safe and consistently straight cutting. Attached to the base, it utilises the structural strength of the box. Prior to purchase it is covered by the longer front side and protected from being damaged. Diamond-shaped side panels offer robust attachment to roll dispensers and provide maximum comfort in use.

The “Bacofoil” packaging is the sum of many years’ experience in the development of wrapping foil systems. The consumer is provided with a perfect product: easy to open, easy to use and re-use, and finally, easy to recycle. The features of the new folding carton are exceptional: the foils are protected perfectly on the shelf and in the kitchen. The box can be completely recycled and therefore offers unbeatable sustainability.

Jury comments

This looked like a conventional foil carton but the judges then saw that the cutting strip was not made of the usual plastic or metal but of paper. This was they felt sure the first time they had seen this in use. It worked very well in cutting the foil and in addition the carton was designed with lugs that could be pushed in from the ends to hold the tube more securely so making dispensing easier. The carton was also designed to be easily refillable. With the paper tear strip this carton was now made entirely of cartonboard and had no other material so simplifying recycling.

Double fun
Iconic and attractive packaging encourages the pleasure of sharing the contents with others. The box is heat and fat-resistant, and a water-based lacquer was used in place of PE coating to enable problem-free recycling.
