Cascades Inc. is proud to have won the Ruby Award for innovation of the year in the confectionery industry thanks to its recyclable and insulating container northbox®. Each year, the Ruby Awards recognize a product in the confectionery market that is a break-through 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 an urgent need to reduce the environmental footprint of the thermal packaging used by the confectionery industry. Packaging is now an integral part of the brand experience, and the new generation of buyers understands its impact on the environment. Cascades is proud to be part of the solution with its isothermal container northbox® made of 100% recycled cardboard, which was designed to be recycled at the end of its life: a first for North America.
