Published on 2015-01-16. Author : SpecialChem

BOLOGNA -- Food containers and disposable tableware designed with a keen eye on environmental sustainability, quality, innovation and customer service. These are the values that ILIP brought to Marca, the private label exhibition held in Bologna from 14 to 15 January.

The Bologna-based company, one of Europe's leading manufacturers of disposable tableware and high-quality food packaging materials in rigid thermoformed plastic, focused its participation upon the slogan "Passion bears good fruit". In order to illustrate this concept, the center of the stand featured a cardboard totem in the shape of a tree. Its fruits consist of various products manufactured by ILIP for its distributors' brand names, such as Coop, Vivi Verde Coop, Vanto, Decò, Spar, Flou, Coal and Real Casa.

The graphics on the panel and the display windows at the rear, on the other hand, were dedicated to the ILIP brand tableware and food sector product lines. In particular, much focus was placed upon the colorful Mirò cutlery line, which is ideal for parties and comes in 8 different colors and 64 premium references, as well as the ILIP Bio line of cups, cutlery and plates, all of which are made from completely compostable materials like PLA and cellulose pulp.

"Our strategy remains that of 360° market coverage, which means overseeing both the more innovative and value-added segments, as well as the more affordable segments and the private labels", explains Ermanno Brancolini, Sales Manager for Italy at ILIP's Foodservice Packaging Business Unit. "Marca is a crucial event for meeting with qualified operators in the large-scale retail sector, including many of our current and potential customers."

The exhibition was an opportunity to introduce ILIP’s new disposable packaging products, which have been graphically coordinated throughout all the product lines. Furthermore, the product labels have already been updated with the new indications regarding the temperatures and use conditions, thus anticipating the regulations that will come into force from January the 1st 2016.
