Cascades wins Ruby Award for recyclable insulated packaging
May 28, 2019 – Cascades, manufacturer of ecological recycling, packaging and hygiene solutions, has won the Ruby Award for innovation of the year in the confectionery industry to its recyclable and insulating container northbox®.

Each year, the Ruby Awards recognize a product in the confectionery market that is a breakthrough innovation that helps advance the industry. This award is presented by the National Confectioners Association (NCA) during the Sweets & Snacks Expo, this year held in Chicago.

With the rise of e-commerce, there is a need to reduce the environmental footprint of the thermal packaging used by the confectionery industry. The Cascades isothermal container northbox® made of 100 per cent recycled cardboard, which was designed to be recycled at the end of its life. The innovation is a first for North America.

"Our most recent innovation, the northbox® level two insulator, is perfectly suited to parcel delivery of temperature-sensitive products during the summer season," says Luc Langevin, president and chief operating officer of the Cascades Specialty Products Group. "We are delighted to offer the confectionery industry a recyclable alternative that preserves the freshness and integrity of their products during transport. We are very proud to have received this award."
