The FachPack Tradeshow 2019 was held in Nuremberg, Germany during the third week of September. This event is a reference in Europe for film converters, and the most well-known companies of the food packaging industry attended. Machinery producers and food packers were also in attendance. All in all, during three days we had the chance to get an updated and representative overview of the European food packaging sector.
There was a common theme of this tradeshow; finding ways to reduce the amount of plastic material used in food packaging products, which is known as downgauging. Since entering this field, STRE has embraced this theme; now having developed, tested and manufactured a nice amount of specialized multilayer film products which follow these market trends. We plan to continue to offer these products commercially and to develop new structures that also harmonize with the environment. To summarize, our aim is to focus our product offering and development objectives on the “Circular Economy.”
Our company has attended this tradeshow with a double interest; on one hand, to promote our films in a wider geographical area and, on the other hand, to contact new potential prospects that could be interested in our products as well as new developments or custom-made materials.
