The Bologna-based company takes all its innovations in low environmental impact and recyclable materials to the trade fair, from the bioplastic line IlipBio to the natural fibre solutions of FibrAware® and the lines for packaging fresh foods designed according to eco-design standards. 

Valsamoggia (21st December 2023) – ILIP, a leading company in the manufacture of food packaging solutions, has once again confirmed its presence at Marca for the 2024 edition; this is the only Italian event to be dedicated entirely to distributor brands and it is scheduled for the Bologna trade fair on 16th and 17th January 2024.

To satisfy the growing demands of companies wishing to make their branded products increasingly sustainable, ILIP will be exhibiting a vast range of solutions manufactured using recycled plastic or plastic that is fully recyclable, or compostable certified according to standard EN13432, but which, at the same time, provide an excellent guarantee of technical performance in food contact and food storage (hall 26, stand A116-B113).

For those looking for alternatives to fossil origin materials, the Bologna-based company offers solutions for all needs, starting with the IlipBio line, developed using innovative biopolymers boasting reduced environmental impact (PLA and MaterBi®), and which are compostable and certified according to standard EN13432. The products of this line, just like the cups, cutlery and trays for gastronomy, are mainly designed to withstand high temperatures and guarantee optimal food storage.

Dedicated to those interested in natural, renewable materials, is FibrAware®, the range of tableware and food and take-away packaging in cellulose pulp and cardboard that can be recycled in the paper stream of the waste separation and wood. The Fibraware® solutions include a wide range of products: paper cups with water dispersion coating or made from PE-coated cardboard with a cardboard lid for each size; the plates are available in three formats (flat, deep or dessert), in packs of 20 and are made from thermoformed PE-coated cardboard suitable for contact with all types of food; and the wood for the cutlery is sourced from responsibly-managed forests. Also on display will be the entire range of cardboard deli trays for take-away such as round and rectangular salad bowls, noodleboxes, salad boxes with windows, cups and containers for different applications such as soups, salads, appetisers and tastings, as well as customisable solutions with the customisable FibrAware® such as cups, bowls and hamburger boxes, available in different formats.

Finally, ILIP will also be taking its two fresh food (meat, fish or dairy products) product lines to ILIP: SealMasterand Stretchmaster, designed according to the eco-design logic so as to ensure the very best product performance with the least use of material and a circular economy approach. The two lines, available in various formats, are each available in different heights.

Specifically, the SealMaster line has been designed to package fresh foods in modified atmosphere offering mono-PET trays with a high recycled content, or made from bioplastic industrially compostable or in a multilayer PET/PE. The Stretchmaster line is instead designed to package in automatic lines that use extensible film or flow pack. To this end, the recycled PET or compostable material trays have specifically shaped corners and rims and are of reduced friction and anti-cut ERGO+ (Extended rounded rim + reduced grip on) helping withstand the demands of the automatic packaging lines and guarantee process reliability.

We are proud to take part in Marca 2024 this year too, as it is an event that offers an important opportunity for us to present our sustainable food packaging solutions” – Giovanni Donini, Sales Manager Foodservice and Fresh Food Packaging of ILIP comments –. “Sustainability has always been a key value for ILIP, which has for many years been deeply committed to respecting the environment, promoting the culture of recycling and reducing wastage of food and raw materials as far as possible, and now that being sustainable has become a necessity, we are very ready to do our bit”.

On 16th and 17th January, it will therefore be possible to discover all the sustainable innovations and solutions on which ILIP is working at hall 26, stand A116-B113 of BolognaFiere.
