Winner Aluminium Tube
Ideal for Food on the Go
There were two winners in the Aluminium Tube category: the tubes for jam from German start-up company Marmetube GmbH, which were produced by Tubex of Austria, and those supplied by Alltub France for hand cream from the renowned supplier Miller Harris achieved exactly the same score.
The winning tube from Tubex is used for jam that has a remarkable fruit content of 66 per cent. It is produced completely from post-industrial recycled (PIR) aluminium for the young company Marmetube. This concept corresponds to Marmetube’s self-image of resource conservation and sustainability. The use of PIR aluminium significantly improves the tube’s life-cycle assessment by reducing CO2 emissions by up to 40 per cent. All the well-known benefits of the aluminium tube are retained at the same time. It is lighter and unbreakable in comparison to a jam jar, which additionally becomes dirty quickly. The excellent protection means the product has a long shelf life and makes additional preservatives superfluous. Its practical means of application, with precise dosage of the jam, is ideal for food on the go. A product innovation that is in keeping with the spirit of the times.
