What the jury said:

The submission succeeded in converting an existing PA-PE packaging into a mono-solution through successfully selecting and combining innovative granulates, whilst at the same time ensuring the functional barrier for cheese ripening as well as puncture resistance required for this product. On top of this, the material reduction of 23% compared to conventional cheese maturing bags was impressive.

Several factors were changed for the better and the CO2 eq./m² reduced by changing from multilayer packaging to mono-material.
