PackTheFuture Award 2018 Logo

The packaging award PackTheFuture stems from a French-German cooperation between two trade organisations: ELIPSO, the Federation for plastic & flexible packaging firms in France, and IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V., the German Association for Plastics Packagings and Films.

The four categories of the international contest cover the main aspects of a sustainable plastic packaging across the entire range of consumer and industrial applications:

  • Eco Design

  • Social Benefit
  • SAVE FOOD (new in 2017)

The award ceremony for the 3rd contest will take place on May 9th, 2017 at the interpack show in Düsseldorf, Germany. More information about the award and the conditions of participation can be found at
