The Italian Institute of Packaging is a national reference for packaging.

Every year this association awards companies twelve “Packaging Oscar” in different categories of packaging. Over the years the “Packaging Oscar” competition became a mean to communicate among companies and promoted novelties.

In 1996, the 30th of foundation of the Company, Fonti Prealpi received the “Packaging Oscar” from the Italian Institute of Packaging for its environmental consciousness, because of its PET bottle that can easily be compressed and recycled. An extensive research and heavy investment, in cooperation with the firm Novembal Packaging, allowed to create a lighter capsule, mounted on the cover of PET bottles.

The two positive results were: saving on working time and reduction in plastic consumption for a better environmental impact.
