UNITED CAPS Secures Prestigious GOLD at SAVE FOOD DESIGN Awards for BUMP CAP

UNITED CAPS, has triumphed at the Inaugural SAVE FOOD DESIGN AWARDS, securing the GOLD accolade for their inventive BUMP CAP. The ceremony, hosted during the Shanghai World of Packaging event, recognized the BUMP CAP as a significant innovation with the potential to dramatically impact global food waste.

Astrid Hoffmann-Leist, who serves in the dual capacity of Chief Innovation and Communication Officer and Business Director (APAC) at UNITED CAPS, collected the award, and noted how this recognition for BUMP CAP which is a collaboration with Mimica, underscores the company's dedication to their "BETTER UNITED" ethos. Speaking at the event Mrs Hoffmann-Leist said “We are proud to have received this prestigious inaugural award. As closure experts, we are in a unique position to develop very ambitious and complex closures and our ability to work with others to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges is what it means to be BETTER UNITED. We are delighted that our efforts have been recognized by SAVE FOOD.”

The BUMP CAP, developed in collaboration with MIMICA, offers a fresh take on what a cap can do. It features a patented gel technology that eclipses the reliability of traditional 'best before' dates by providing a tactile freshness indicator, thus extending the shelf life of perishable goods and contributing to a reduction in global food waste.

This award highlights UNITED CAPS' drive to innovate and their steadfast belief in the power of collaboration to forge a better future.
