ProAmpac-RAP’s Chicago Town ¼ Slice Holder is shortlisted for the ‘Flexeserve New Food To Go Award’, celebrating the latest cutting-edge development and innovation in the ready-to-eat market.

The challenge for Chicago Town was to create a packaging solution that maintained optimum temperature for their range of freshly baked Pizza To Go cooked pizza without compromising on quality.

Designed for ease of use and offering fantastic convenience for consumers, the ¼ Slice Holder solution boasts a simple yet effective branded carton design that delivers in all areas.

The hot food-to-go Some Like It Hot range is up for ‘The Soho Sandwich Co. New Product Award’, which applauds outstanding innovation in packaging.

The Some Like it Hot range delivers an extensive array of ground-breaking packaging solutions for the hot food-to-go industry, providing excellent heat retention while protecting the product and retaining its freshness through a range of cutting-edge solutions.

Finally, the Some Like It Hot campaign is also up for the ‘Marketing Award’, which recognises the importance of initiating successful and innovative campaigns to achieve specific strategic goals.

The Some Like It Hot campaign concept captures the energy and essence of the range, acting as a mechanic to collate ProAmpac-RAP’s suite of cutting-edge solutions in this ever-expanding growth sector.

This year’s winners will be announced at an event hosted virtually on Thursday 6th May.

Graham Williams, Global Managing Director – Fresh Food Packaging, said, “The Sammies is a key annual event in the packaging industry calendar.
