JASA Packaging Solutions is the market leader and product leader in the field of paper packaging. An entitlement that, in part, was earned due to the Bag-2-Paper™ paper packaging. This innovative packaging has already won awards before. After the NL Packaging Award 2019 and the WorldStar Packaging Award 2020, the proud JASA team has now virtually received the bronze WorldStar Sustainability Award 2020!
WorldStar Packaging Award 2020
Since 1970 the World Packaging Organization (WPO) awards companies worldwide. The organization, founded in 1968, aims to:
- Promote the development of packaging technology, science, access, and engineering;
- Contribute to the development of international trade;
- Promote education and training in packaging.
The organization is a global name in the packaging world. The WorldStar Competition is one of the most significant events of WPO. Hence, this third award won by the Bag-2-Paper™ is at least prestigious!
The award ceremony
Next to JASA, there are three winners of the Sustainability Award:
- Woolworths Bakery Plant Fibre Tray (Woolworths, Australia)
- Lewis Road 100% rPET Milk Bottle (Pact, New Zealand).
The award ceremony was to take place on May 8, during Interpack 2020, where the winners would receive the Special Awards. Covid-19 changed this planning, and the winners eventually received their awards in a unique way, during a memorable virtual ceremony.
The host of WPO's presentation called the Bag-2-Paper™ a revolution in the field of sustainable packaging. JASA's own Sandra also spoke extensively and took the opportunity to showcase the packaging and highlight the unique features of the Bag-2-Paper™.
People on both sides of the globe could attend as the ceremony took place twice and at different times. Yet another advantage: the virtual ceremony allowed not only the guests of the evening to be present, but all those who were interested! The JASA team, back home in Alkmaar, followed the ceremony on a big screen.
JASA is fully dedicated to sustainability; it makes us incredibly proud to have won the WorldStar Sustainability Award, a crowning achievement of our sustainable work!
It is not without reason our Bag-2-Paper™ has already won several awards. This innovative paper packaging abandoned the principle of film sealing; instead, a labeling technique is used. In addition to durability, this brings another significant advantage: speed. JASA machines pack at lightning speed. And since no heat is used to seal the packaging, the Bag-2-Paper™ machines are highly energy-efficient. This sustainable packaging solution became a huge success.
Why did JASA design the innovative Bag-2-Paper™? Paper is one of the most sustainable packaging materials: it's recyclable, renewable, and has consistently had the highest recycling rate in recent years. Paper packaging exudes sustainability, for which there is a faster uptake by consumers nowadays.
In addition to the Bag-2-Paper™, JASA can process all packaging paper materials currently on the market. JASA accomplishes this on its vertical packaging machines under the name 'JASA Back-to-Paper.' This not only makes JASA the market and product leader in the field of paper packaging types, but it also enables JASA to provide independent advice in this field. That's why we've created a white paper full of information for you to read all about packaging paper types. If you have any questions on this subject, we would be happy to hear from you!
