„Butter packaging with freshness seal“
The ALPMA freshness packaging is folding packaging whose packaging film is continuously sealed on the closure side. Very special, innovative film cutting can be used to fold the film so that sealing zones occur outside of the product area. As a result of this, fresh butter aroma is verifiably kept in the packaging for longer and the shelf life is extended. This process also leads to tamper-proof and hygienic packaging which ensures that the consumer is the first to open it. Practical opening tabs enable easy opening without fingers becoming greasy. In addition, less packaging material is required for optimum product protection in comparison with a plastic tub.
International FoodTec Award
With the International FoodTec Award, the DLG, together with its specialist partners, recognises pioneering developments in terms of innovation, sustainability and efficiency in the field of food technology. An international jury of experts from the fields of research and teaching as well as representatives from practice selects the most advanced concepts. The prize, which is awarded every three years, is presented in the form of gold and silver medals. A gold medal is awarded to products with a new conception, in which the function has been decisively changed and the use of which makes a new process possible or significantly improves a known process. Silver medals go to products that have been further developed in such a way that a significant improvement in the function or the process is achieved as a result.
