20th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation – Wilmington, Delaware

Marks & Spencer’s Swiss Chocolate Assortment with Plantic “environmentally friendly” packaging was selected as one of the winners at the 20th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation. The Marks & Spencer chocolate box was recognized for its eco-sensitive packaging which demonstrates excellence in sustainability, innovation and quality.

The Plantic® tray inside the Marks & Spencer Swiss Chocolate Assortment offers the unique properties of being: biodegradable after use; home compostable; compostable to European (EN13432) and American (ASTM 6400) standards; and made from renewable and sustainable resources (non-GM corn starch) that are non-toxic to the environment.

Contributors to this packaging project also include Stäger, Switzerland, who were responsible for thermoforming the Plantic® trays and Chocolat Frey, Switzerland, the chocolate manufacturers.
