Top Packaging Summit last week was the place to be for exchange of ideas across all borders in the value chain.

The conference also included the final of the Packbridge Challenge Competition. This is the Europe-wide competition for entrepreneurs aiming for the packaging industry. 
The audience enjoyed 10 engaging presentations from 10 really interesting Start-up finalists. All with a thought through concept attractive for the industry.

Beside the grand price of SEK 50 000 a Best Pitch Award, sponsored by Empack, was given to the audience favorite pitch. The winner received exhibition space at the value of SEK 30 000 at Empack in Malmö and Stockholm.

This year, there were great competition and the jury had difficulty selecting a winner from all the great ideas and pitches. Two prices was presented but only one winner. And the winner was… Cellutech!

They got the price from the jury as the most promising concept. The surprising result from the voting from the audience was that Cellutech again won the price.

An amazing day for the Stockholm based start-up who develops packaging material from cellulose. For more information visit their web site at http://www.cellutech.se/.
