The seal received proves the full recyclability, eco-design and energy recovery of the corresponding packaging.

As always, this exhibit space will be the meeting place for the annual meeting of Grow International which is the European body encompassing all European national wood packaging federations. It is presided over by Mr Enrique Soler Segrelles, the president of FEDEMCO.

The most sustainable packaging

Thus, wooden packaging is the most sustainable on the market.
