Fabbri Group has been awarded the honour of “Best Technological Innovation” for its new Nature Fresh cling film and wrapping machines Automac NF at the 2020 “Oscar dell’Imballaggio” in Italy. Nature Fresh is the world’s first bioplastic compostable cling film for automatic and manual applications.
Stefano Mele, Fabbri Group’s CEO, comments: “It is fantastic to be recognised for our ground-breaking work in packaging that has created this certified compostable film and wrapping packaging solution. The Nature Fresh film is the first certified compostable stretch film for automatic packaging on a global scale. It is compatible with the most popular wrapping machines on the market but our award-winning solution uses the high productivity Automac NF wrapping machines, to take full advantage of the fundamental characteristics of the film.
The competition in this category was fierce but they were impressed with the mechanical properties and aesthetic qualities of this certified compostable film which combine to provide optimal presentation of the product. Utilising the Automac NF packaging machines, which optimise the film machine cycle, allows food manufacturers to combine Nature Fresh with equally compostable labels and trays.”
Nature Fresh offers performance equivalent to PVC and better water vapour transmission compared to traditional cling films. It has high mechanical resistance and extensibility, high resistance to puncture and demonstrates maximum performance with thicknesses optimised for application whilst boasting high levels of transparency and anti-fog properties. The Automac NF packaging machines are compatible with all other stretch films on the market.
The “Oscar dell’Imballaggio” (“Italian Packaging Oscar”), also known as “Best Packaging”, was established in 1957 and is Italy’s oldest and most prestigious packaging award.
