A new line for professionals 900 600 Ecopack

A new line for professionals

Ecopack launches the Professional line, a range of cooking moulds designed for pastry shops, delicatessens, bakeries, the hospitality industry and the Cash & Carry sector

 

After a long experience earned in the large manufacturing sector, Ecopack launches its line designed for smaller companies.

Quantities will change but the quality will always remain the same, the result of research and development to create environmentally friendly moulds with excellent technical properties.

 

Designed for professionals

If your business makes sweet and savoury products, yet not on a large scale, now you can still enjoy the high quality of Ecopack.

The Professional range, designed for businesses that prepare food like yours, includes not only classic moulds for traditional desserts such as Panettone and Colomba (“Easter Dove”) cakes, but also moulds for plum cakes and the pie and plumpy lines, available in all sizes.

But there’s more! They all come with an rPET lid, so you can also use them for deliveries.

 

We scaled our production to be able to serve even the smallest companies.

The packs of the Ecopack Professional Line are tailored for your shop: the number of moulds per single batch ranges from 25 to 100 units.

The packs are heat-shrink sealed or come in a plastic bag.

A label is applied to the heat-shrink of the sub-packaging reporting the number of units per batch, product name and sizes, icons with instructions for use and certifications and a multilingual description.

Baking moulds

All the cooking moulds of the Ecopack Professional Line are made

in recyclable and biodegradable paper.

The raw materials used such as paper, glues and inks all comply with the international regulations regarding food-grade materials.

The moulds can be used in the oven and are certified to withstand up to 220 °C (430 °F).

They are also suitable for microwave and freezer use, up to -20 °C (-4 °F).

 

The Paper Pan trays

Why is Paper Pan special?

Because it has the same characteristics as plastic trays such as resistance to grease and liquids, rigidity and heat-sealability while being 30% lighter than common cardboard containers and realised in FSC® paper.

This is why it is the most eco-friendly cardboard tray on the market, with technical properties comparable to those of plastic trays!

 

It can be recycled with paper according to UNI 11743:2019 and UNI EN 13430 regulations. Paper Pan has also obtained the Aticelca® 501:2019 level B certification: this means that 80% of the paper can be reused from each Paper Pan container.

 

Bamboo salad bowls

Bamboo salad bowls are convenient and sustainable at the same time: they are made with renewable and biodegradable raw materials, besides being versatile and suitable for both cold and hot preparations.

They can also be used in the microwave, at a maximum power of 800 W for three minutes (but not in the traditional oven!).

Like all Ecopack products, they are made with food-grade materials, they do not release hazardous substances such as PFOS and PFOA and do not contaminate food in any way.

They can be used at temperatures between -18 °C (0 °F) and 70 °C (160 °F).

Paper Pan: the new shape of sustainability 900 600 Ecopack

Paper Pan: the new shape of sustainability

The Paper Pan range becomes even more eco-friendly: from now on, it will be made of FSC® paper

 

Paper Pan is a paper tray for food storage that aims to replace the myriad of plastic trays currently in use.

The millions of plastic trays used daily at supermarkets and for delivery services pose a great environmental threat.

Indeed, soiled plastic is no longer recyclable, and ends up in landfills.

 

Paper Pan is the revolution!

Although Paper Pan is made of, well, paper, it boasts the same properties as its plastic equivalent.

In fact, it resists grease just like ordinary plastic containers and has the same mechanical stiffness, as well as strong resistance to liquids.

For take-away purposes and to expose food at the deli department of grocery stores, Paper Pan is heat-sealable.

 

As well as its technical features, Paper Pan has even more important eco-friendly traits.

It is easily recycled: it uses 30% less cellulose compared to other paperboard trays on the market, while maintaining a high mechanical resistance.

The reduced cellulose translates to a significant reduction in paper consumption and pressure on the entire supply chain.

 

Ecopack’s production has started in Italy, but its ambition is to have a worldwide impact.

 

All the features of Paper Pan

Paper Pan has achieved a level B recyclability rating according to the Aticelca® 501 evaluation system: this means 80% of the paper from each Paper Pan may be recycled.

 

The trays are available in three different formats (small, medium, and large), for every purpose, and starting today they have a new graphic design: you may choose between the white version or printed version.

They may be covered with their transparent PET lid or heat-sealed with PET film.

Chocolate Lava Cake with a warm heart 900 600 Ecopack

Chocolate Lava Cake with a warm heart

A tasty video-recipe featuring two very special protagonists

 

Here is a new, super-tasty video-recipe, easily made with the help of our muffin and mini-panettone molds: chocolate cake with a molten center.

A true chocolate-lover’s dessert to prepare together or bring to a special dinner!

 

Ecopack muffin and mini-panettone molds

Our muffin molds are made of grease-proof, non-stick paper (so there is no need to grease them) and, like all Ecopack products, it is approved for direct food contact.

 

Our mini-panettone molds are composed of a vertical band made of the same material as the muffin molds, and a non-stick, corrugated, micro-perforated paper base.

 

They are both assembled with high-precision automatic machines and are free-standing, thus no metal tray is required to bake the cakes.

 

Fully faithful to our values, the molds are made of 100% recyclable, biodegradable, Made in Italy, and fluorine-free paper.

By the end of 2021, the molds manufactured at our Italian plants will all be made of FSC-certified paper.

 

Cake recipe

To prepare the chocolate cake with a molten center, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 60 g sugar
  • 50 g egg yolk
  • 225 g dark chocolate
  • 60 g “00” flour
  • 200 g egg white beaten until stiff
  • 50 g melted butter

… and of course the Ecopack paper molds!

Watch the video-recipe and explore its preparation.

 

How do consumers perceive eco-friendly packaging? 900 600 Ecopack

How do consumers perceive eco-friendly packaging?

A recent study has shown that consumers also care about the environment when buying food

 

When consumers enter a shop to buy some food, what brings them to choose one product or another? Does packaging influence this choice?

People are increasingly inclined to consider the environmental impact of the products they use, before buying them.

 

The role of packaging in the choice of products

Packaging is not the first thing that consumers consider when buying a product, however, studies have shown that almost half of people pay attention to the materials of which product packaging is made.

In particular, they focus on avoiding plastic.

 

56% of consumers would pay a higher price for recyclable packaging and 39% would pay more for biodegradable packaging as well.

 

Consumers’ knowledge of materials

In general, consumers look for products that foster a more sustainable lifestyle.

They make an effort to minimise waste and their impact on the environment and, above all, they want to reduce the use of plastic.

 

Yet, sometimes, it can be difficult to tell what is really eco-friendly, even for the most attentive consumers.

For example, the recyclability of materials is perceived as very important for the protection of the environment, however, the parameters vary from country to country.

The good news is that consumers know what features a material should have to be eco-friendly.

 

Communication is key

72% of consumers perceive cardboard as the most ecological material, unlike plastic, which they normally avoid.

53% of people reckon it as a common material, 49% think it is functional and easily recyclable.

Why?

 

Communication is very important: consumers highly appreciate brands that indicate that a packaging is recyclable or eco-friendly, more than reading an explanatory text.

In fact, this is exactly what influences their choice when purchasing.

75% of consumers are aware of the problems related to plastic and 50% of them have changed their purchasing habits.

 

This is where retailers and packaging producers come into play: it is good to choose wisely the materials used in the production of products and communicate this choice effectively to consumers in order to help them make the best choices for the planet.

Why sustainability is important today 900 600 Ecopack

Why sustainability is important today

After the pandemic we faced in the past year and that we are still dealing with, the economy needs to restart. Sustainability is key

 

The only development possible nowadays is a sustainable one: economic growth cannot be detached from environmental awareness and care for the scarce resources of our planet.

 

Post Covid-19 economics

If some thought that the pandemic would place the topics of ecology and sustainability in the background, they were wrong: such themes are currently instrumental to development.

In fact, sustainability is the key we need to come out of the economic crisis triggered by the pandemic.

 

A world in which we all can equally benefit from resources is, indeed, the future. Not only in people’s consciences, but even in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations.

At Ecopack, we give our contribution by subscribing to the Italian Global Compact Network.

 

The role of businesses

Corporate investment in sustainability is above all a gesture of great sensitivity and awareness: the sign of a direction truly in line with the modern world and the needs of our era.

 

Secondly, environmental sustainability is fortunately increasingly rooted in consumers and partners, who are happier to rely on companies showing a green philosophy.

 

Finally, sustainability also means cost savings: raw material waste translates to greater costs for all, including the very manufacturers and companies.

 

In a world growingly in need of kindness, companies need to lead the battle against waste and pollution, even by raising awareness among their customers.

 

The Ecopack philosophy

This is why we work towards sustainable manufacturing every day.

Ever since our birth, we have performed constant research to manufacture our molds using sustainable and recyclable raw material while maintaining Ecopack’s unique technical features unaltered.
We have recently shown an extra effort towards sustainability by shifting completely to FSC-certified paper. In fact, by the end of 2021, the products manufactured at our Italian plants will be mostly made of compostable paper.

Our sustainable products include the Paper Pan line – our recyclable paper trays – and Cocoa Paper – molds made of cocoa bean shells.

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

Colomba and other special shapes for delicious cakes!

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.
