The FibreForm owl – award winning chocolate packaging

BillerudKorsnäs partner CHOCAL received innovation prize at ProSweets Cologne for challenging traditional chocolate packaging made out of aluminum. FibreForm® is the challenger and there is great potential for replacing further products.

BillerudKorsnäs partner, CHOCAL (Hörnlein Group), located in the southern part of Germany, has been awarded “the ISM packaging award” for innovative packaging at ProSweets 2019 in Cologne. Seasonal chocolate figures - wrapped in paper - is one of the upcoming products soon to be out on the market. The goal with the collaboration between the companies is to create more sustainable packaging.

We at BillerudKorsnäs are happy to see that our work together with Chocal creates such enthusiasm and also an award. We see increased interest in the unique stretch-ability of our FibreForm and the various different applications it can be used for.
