We were thrilled to be recognised with an award at the packaging industry’s prestigious Starpack Awards at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in London last week.
TrakRap won a Silver Star in the Engineering Innovation category for our TrakRap Packaging System, a sustainable stretch wrapping system that produces 100% recyclable secondary packaging solutions for food and drink manufacturers supplying UK retailers and supermarkets and enables them to reduce their carbon footprint.
Starpack judges praised the system’s environmentally friendly credentials, which include the ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy usage by as much as 90% and materials usage by as much as 70%. They were also impressed by its fast operating speeds, which enable the system to wrap as many as 50 packs per minute – more than the industry average.
Martin Leeming, CEO of TrakRap, said: “Winning any award is special but we’re over the moon to have received an Engineering Innovation award from Starpack, which is among the most respected institutions in the packaging industry.
“Creating packaging solutions that have a lower impact on the environment is what drives us, so we’re especially pleased that the award recognises the low carbon benefits the TrakRap system delivers and further enhances our reputation as a leader in the field of sustainable secondary packaging in the UK.”
The Starpack awards are the UK’s premier awards scheme recognising innovation in packaging design and technology.
