Colomba and other special shapes for delicious cakes!

Colomba and other special shapes for delicious cakes! 900 600 Ecopack

It is not only the Panettone that brings families together and brings a smile to the table: the Easter Colomba is an excellent example of cake adored by the whole family, standing out for its special shape.

 

It is not only the classic round, square, or plum cake shapes that make the table shine: the oddest shapes may do the same, and not only on holidays!

 

Easter Colomba baking mold

Like every year, Easter is approaching, and there will be a star actor on the tables of all Italians: the Colomba.

 

The cake has an unusual shape, not exactly regular or geometric, but this is what makes it unique!

With Ecopack, you may choose between four formats of free-standing baking molds, depending on your production requirements.

 

Stand out at first sight

You already know your cakes are special.

Then why not let the world know by giving them a unique shape?

Ecopack offers a myriad of customization opportunities: you may print your company logo on the molds, and choose the solution that most suits to you among the different sizes available. Give a shape to your creativity!

 

Thinking outside the box has never been so easy: choose the shape you prefer for your cake, along with the size of your logo to decorate the paper baking mold, and create your singular treat.

 

Special shapes, same quality

Even our special shape molds, just like all the others in the Ecopack range, are produced with high-precision automatic machines.

This processing technique allows us to achieve minimum size tolerance and use the baking molds with automatic denesting machines.

 

The vertical band is made of greaseproof, non-stick, food-contact corrugated paper, while the base is made of non-stick, food-contact, microperforated corrugated paper.

The printing ink we use is resistant to high temperatures and to the preservatives used in food.

 

Moreover, the special molds are free-standing: this means that the cakes may be baked inside them without the use of a metal baking tray.

 

Like always, our products are designed to be fully eco-friendly and are made of recyclable materials.

Ecopack shifts to FSC

Ecopack shifts to FSC 900 600 Ecopack

A pivotal step for the company: the use of fully certified paper

 

Ecopack’s love for the environment goes back a long way: ever since the establishment of our company, we have committed to the minimum environmental impact of our products and the use of recyclable materials.

Like always, we love to show our commitment through tangible actions.

Our action today is thus an additional great step: from now on, we will only use FSC-certified paper, initially at our Italian factory, then at our production facilities abroad.

 

Ecopack and sustainability since 1939

One of Ecopack’s principles is the constant research to maintain a high quality standard of products, using eco-friendly materials with a small carbon footprint to create unique molds for food products.

This is why we cooperate with research centers on a regular basis to always develop new, innovative and eco-friendly products, with a nevertheless guaranteed resistance to high and low temperatures.

A number of Ecopack product lines designed in the scope of sustainability and the abolishment of single-use plastic already exist: Cocoa Paper, created using cocoa processing waste; Paper Pan, our tray made of recyclable cellulose; and our paper baking molds.

 

The breakthrough: our shift to FSC paper

It is a very important moment for our company: we wish to prove once again that our commitment towards protecting the world is real. This is why we have chosen to use strictly FSC-certified paper for the products made at our Italian firm, and soon extend this to our production facilities worldwide.

FSC® is an international organization for the promotion of responsible forest and plantation management born in 1993, while in Italy it has been operating since 2001.

 

The FSC® label identifies products containing wood from responsibly managed forests, in accordance with stringent environmental, social, and economic standards.

To strictly use material bearing this label means having the certainty that all the paper employed to create our products derives from an environmentally adequate, socially useful and economically sustainable management of the world’s forests.

Why our clients choose Ecopack every day

Why our clients choose Ecopack every day 900 600 Ecopack

There is more than one reason why many companies choose us for their product packaging!

 

Ecopack means eco-friendly and high-quality packaging: our incredibly loyal customers, which have relied on us for years to dress their products, know this well.

But what are the reasons to choose us?

Here are a few.

Quality

At Ecopack, our goal is to always give our clients the best.

When we talk about quality, we do not only mean the extremely important standards that we comply with to always provide top-notch products, but we also refer to the quality of customer service and relations: a quintessential element for an optimum buying experience.

Our priority is to keep our promises.

This is why we always tell our clients yes, we care”, and are always at your side, even virtually, by means of our chat service.

Stability

A company that has been in the business for over 80 years and has proven, over time, to be stable and serious, can be nothing but worthy of your trust.

We are solid people: a real partner to which you may entrust your corporate packaging.

Transparency

We are what we look like, since 1939: we do not care to attract you with magic tricks and illusions, simply because we know that truth and correct information are always the winning hand, even in customer relations.

You may always place confidence in what we tell you.

Problem solving

We always take your matters to heart, as if they were our own. We put all our effort to solve any issue, one step at a time, and always wearing a smile.

Paper Pan saves the environment, and your wallet!

Paper Pan saves the environment, and your wallet! 700 730 Ecopack

With the new Ecopack initiative, your love for the planet is rewarded

Protecting the planet we live in is a reward in itself, but Ecopack has chosen to give another incentive to all those who, like us, love the Earth: starting today, and through February 15, there will be a 5% discount on all Paper Pan orders.

 

Paper Pan: the tray that loves the environment

A myriad of plastic trays are used for food every day.

This means a great consumption of raw material, and a problematic recycling process, multiplied by the incredibly high number of trays populating tables and supermarkets all around the world.

Moreover, it is hard to remove food residue from plastic, which needs to be completely clean for recycling purposes.

This is how the Paper Pan line was born: its resistance to grease and liquids is excellent – comparable to that of common plastic trays – and its mechanical stiffness has nothing to envy of its less eco-friendly cousins.

Another unique feature of this line is its heat-sealability: despite being made mainly of paper, it may be subject to heat-sealing.

It can be used to package food exposed at delis and supermarkets, but even for take-away purposes, with its ability to maintain goodness and taste of food.

It may be closed with an RPET lid or with a multilayer HDPE-PET film.

Paper Pan uses 30% less cellulose compared to paperboard trays, but it maintains its mechanical resistance: its technical quality thus remains unaltered, but its environmental impact is reduced to a bare minimum.

Paper Pan may be recycled as paper in accordance with UNI 11743:2019 and UNI EN 13430 standards, and has achieved an Aticelca® (Italian organization of paper technology professionals) 501:2019 assessment system level B score, which means 80% of the paper content of each Paper Pan may be reused.

 

Ecopack and environment: a love lasting since 1939

Ever since the dawn of our company, not only do we provide technically exceptional packaging solutions to our customers, but we use our human resources for the constant research of advanced technology that may allow us to achieve top results through eco-friendly materials.

Environmental sustainability is, in fact, our true vocation. Our company offers a wide range of products made using recyclable materials with an extremely low carbon footprint.

Come acquaint yourself with our sustainable packaging solutions.

Eco-friendly, since 1939 900 600 Ecopack

For us, sustainability is not a trend but a pillar of our company since its inception.

 

Ecopack: high-quality manufacture, since 1939

Ecopack supplies moulds that are designed and built for the worldwide food industry in Europe, Middle East, Asia, Australia, the United States and South America.

The story of our brand began in 1939 in Turin: initially specialised in the production of cake moulds and packaging, our business activity later expanded to the savoury sector.
Our company boasts collaborations with the major international confectionery manufacturers, which for over thirty years have entrusted Ecopack with the production of paper moulds, baking cups suitable for automated industrial production and moulds for festive cakes, including some special ones for the Colomba (Easter dove) cake.

Throughout the years, our range of products has grown a lot and now includes more than 800 items with different formats, finishes and colours. We also offer the possibility of customising the products according to the customer’s needs, for example, by printing the company logo.

However, the feature that makes Ecopack truly stand out from the competition is our strong focus on the quality of our products and the innovation of the materials, always keeping in mind the green aspect.

Sustainability and performance: innovation at Ecopack

At Ecopack, research never stops. Long-term research projects are always underway to maintain high-quality standards and attain the highest innovation levels in the food packaging sector.

The ecological commitment that has always distinguished our company has led to important collaborations with research institutes, valuable partners in the creation of our products with innovative techniques and materials that are also environmentally friendly.
The sustainability of our products goes hand in hand with high-end technical characteristics, for optimised production processes and very high performance of the products, even at high temperatures.

Ecopack research is founded on two pillars:
The development of new technologies that allow the creation of lighter products, thus requiring fewer resources.
The selection of innovative and performing raw materials, which comply with strict technical and ecological standards.

Panettone Special: alto, basso and delicious

Panettone Special: alto, basso and delicious 900 600 Ecopack

The perfect moulds for the star of the Christmas festivities.

 

Originally from Milan but popular all over Italy, the Panettone is a true symbol of Christmas on the table.
 

The origins of Panettone

The origins of Panettone date back to the Middle Ages, when it was customary to celebrate Christmas by eating a richer type of bread than was eaten every other day.

According to some sources, on the evening of the 24th of December, large loaves baked from wheat flour (a very precious raw material at the time) were brought to the table and a slice was served to every diner.
The last slice was kept for the following year, as a sign of continuity.

Apparently, until 1395. Milan’s bakeries were only allowed to bake wheat bread at Christmas, which they then gave as a gift to their regular customers.
The custom of baking enriched bread during the festive period was not exclusive to Milan, however, but was common in many Italian and European cities.

Alto or basso: different types of panettone

Two types of Panettone can be found today: alto and basso. Which is the most traditional?
You could say both.

The original Panettone was a large loaf of bread that was baked without the aid of a mould.
This was possible mainly because the fat content was much lower than in today’s Panettone, which contains butter and lots of egg yolks.

In the Twenties, Angelo Motta had the idea of wrapping his panettone in straw paper, to make it rise vertically, and enriching it with fat to make it tastier.
This is how the idea of the mushroom-shaped Panettone, recognised as the traditional shape of the industrial Panettone, was born.

Milanese cake shops, on the other hand, continue to prefer the low version, but due to the greater quantity of fat used, it is necessary to bake it in a low mould.

Neither of the two is the original version, but both are absolutely delicious!

Ecopack panettone moulds

Ecopack has always supplied alto and basso Panettone moulds.

They are both particularly suitable for industrial production, because the high precision line allows easy use with automatic denesting machines.

The non-stick greaseproof paper band and the corrugated micro-perforated non-stick paper bottom are safe for contact with food.
The moulds are suitable for baking at high temperatures (up to 220°C) and are self-supporting, so there is no need to use metal moulds.

And like all Ecopack products, the use of high-quality materials that are not only functional but also ecological and recyclable is of great importance.
