JAKARTA, Indonesia, June 23, 2020 (Press Release) -Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE), the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) and its Foopak Bio Natura sustainable food packaging solution as a winner of the SDCE 100 Award for 2020.
The SDCE 100 spotlights successful and innovative projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions. The Foopak Bio Natura paperboard has been selected as a sustainable and cost-effective food packaging solution to single-use plastics. Bio Natura uses a proprietary water-based coating, a sustainable alternative to polyethylene-based moisture and liquid barriers. The innovative coating eliminates the need for the lengthy, expensive stripping process for recycling and allows the product to compost naturally in a matter of weeks.
“We are honored to have Foopak Bio Natura named among the Supply & Demand Chain Executive SDCE 100,” says Felix Koh, Senior Vice President & Head of Global Business Unit (Industrial), APP. “With plastic bans being announced around the world, and consumer brands looking for an end-to-end lifecycle product solution, Bio Natura is an ideal choice, allowing companies to reach their sustainability goals without sacrificing quality.”
Members of the SDCE 100 can serve as a map for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects also show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
“Innovation is essential in driving the supply chain industry forward, and thanks to these valuable partnerships, companies of all sizes are able to achieve success in projects that matter,” says Marina Mayer, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “From business intelligence systems and supply and demand planning to inventory reduction and procurement solutions, the SDCE 100 offers proof-of-concept that with the right planning and execution, anything is possible.”
