During the fourth edition of the NL Packaging Awards 2019, Thursday the 16th of May in the NBC in Nieuwegein, JASA was proud and honored to receive the award in the category Innovation Technique.
The NL Packaging Awards are awarded annually to companies that stand out in the field of packaging. A jury assesses different factors, for instance entrepreneurship, innovation and technique. The awards are divided in 13 categories, and every category has two awards: the winner and the runner up. In February we were thrilled to be nominated for the prestigious award in the category Innovation Technique, with our Bag-2-Paper™.
Innovation is highly valued at JASA. We love contributing to a more sustainable way of packaging, which is why we developed the Bag-2-Paper™. This packaging is made of paper, without a plastic coating, and is a 100% recyclable. The Bag-2-Paper™ is well suited to make packaging for dry products, such as potatoes, onions and flower bulbs, more sustainable. The machine packages the products at a breathtaking pace. A revolution in the field of packaging for dry products!
The NL Packaging Awards ceremony
During the NL Packaging Awards 2019 JASA was represented by the full board of directors (Eduard de Haan, Piet Pannekeet, Sandra Pannekeet and Hendrik van den Berg) and their spouses, as well as three salesmen (Edwin Lubbers, Maikel van Wiggen and Klaas Jan Spelt).
The festive evening, presented by Jort Kelder, started with a delicious four course dinner. During dinner the event that everybody had looked forward to took place: the Award ceremony. The highlight of the evening was the announcement of the winner in the category Innovation Technique. The winner is: JASA Bag-2-Paper™ from JASA Packaging Solutions! This was a wonderful acknowledgement for all the hard work that we have done, which makes us more than proud. What an honor! The jury also rewarded us with this beautiful compliment:
“This is the winner because it is a real innovation on a packaging machine that is decades old. The decisive factor is the developed technology that leads to a new packaging concept. The principle of foil sealing has been abandoned and an adhesive system has been used as an alternative. A justified winner.”
Thank you to everyone involved!
Proud and delighted JASA went home with the prestigious award. Thanks to NL Packaging Awards 2019, the jury and everyone involved, for this amazing evening!
