Commenting on these further honours for the alufoil sector Guido Aufdemkamp, Director Communication of the European Aluminium Foil Association, EAFA ? which organises the Alufoil Trophy ? said, ?Our industry is noted for its innovation and design capabilities.

The award of these important WorldStars is proof that our members make both clever and highly practical packs which improve the overall usefulness and environmental contribution aluminium foil can make to packaging.?
The next Alufoil Trophy winners, for 2014, will be a major feature of the EAFA stand at the interpack exhibition in Düsseldorf this May. The winners will be announced in Spring 2014, shortly before the exhibition.
