Ilim Gofra has won PART Award, international packaging manufacturing and design award, at RosUpack

Pre-pack* for sauces and ketchup developed by Ilim Gofra’s R&D designers was named the best in the POS-materials nomination at international PART Award. When selecting winners, expert judges evaluated the structural solutions and innovative factor of a corrugated board product used, along with its service and marketing functions, design and print quality, sustainability and protective properties of packaging.

"A fully self-erecting box means that no size or double-sided adhesive tape is needed and it has built-in separators with retainers. One of important requirements was colorful external and internal design. A proposed pre-pack solution helped to do without double-sided print, which drove a cost reduction for materials and the entire production cycle", commented Yury Grinyuk, Head of Packaging Design Group at Ilim Gofra.

This corrugated board product is manufactured at Asahi Line at the Kommunar site. The line is equipped with Celmacch Chroma Print EVO 1700 machine for High Quality Print. Experts from the corrugated board plant developed the form and design of this packaging solution to ensure the use of state-of-the-art color rendering technique and make pre-pack as attractive and eye-catching as possible.
