Ahlstrom-Munksjö beverage filter media win best “Sustainable Product” at the INDEX™20 Innovation Awards

Our solutions for the single serve tea and coffee industries received a prestigious award during the live online ceremony organized by EDANA.


INDEX, the world's leading nonwoven exhibitions, might have been postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 aendemic, but the organizers didn't miss the opportunity to host the "INDEX™20 Innovation Awards" as an online ceremony a few days ago.

The INDEX™20 Innovation Awards are presented only once in every three years for "Excellence in the nonwovens and related industries". The Awards are comprised of seven categories covering all fields of the nonwovens supply chain, with a maximum of three nominees selected per category. 

It is with great pleasure that we announce that our Fiber+, Green Capsule Top Lid, Compostable K-cup filter, developed for the single serve beverage market, received the award for best "Sustainable Product".

This reward is a clear recognition of the hard work our team made to come up with a complete product portfolio addressing the issue of the environmental impact of single serve solutions. From tea bag material to single serve coffee, we now have a compostable solution to offer to our customers” says Gianmaria Pavan, Head of Beverage Business Line at Ahlstrom-Munksjö.
