First recyclable
Frozen paper bags.

The Special Packaging Award of the German Sustainability Award went to food manufacturer Frosta in December 2020 for its paper bag for frozen vegetables. With this special award for more sustainable product packaging ideas, the German Sustainability Award Foundation (together with REWE Group) honored packaging that does not require any plastic coating or film at all. In this bag for frozen vegetable mixes, Frosta replaces plastic with paper. The packaging is made of unbleached and uncoated kraft paper and comes from sustainable, FSC®-certified forestry (FSC® N003262). It can be disposed of with the paper waste. Environmentally friendly water-based inks are used for printing.
