CHEMOSVIT FOLIE s.r.o. is a winner of several awards, e.g.:
2019 - "Packaging of the Year 2019" for Roasted Hazelnuts - a recyclable packaging
We managed to exclude aluminium from the structure. Instead of a composite, we have a material that is easier to recycle.
Customer tests of the packaged product confirmed that the minimum durability of the product is the same for this structure. We continue with other kinds of nuts in the project.
2018 - "Packaging of the Year 2018" for packaging of instant soups
Laminate made of a 15 micron OPP and a white LDPE film. Offset printing technology with a central impression cylinder allows for reaching a perfect register of thin films. Inks deposited in machine stable positions, and electron beam hardening (E-beam), stand for an advantage not only as regards shortening of preparatory work, but also reducing environmental impacts.
E-beam technology does not rely on solvents, photoinitiators, nor drying of inks. Unlike rotogravure printing cylinders, metal plates can be produced in several minutes, and are 100% recyclable.
Excellent printing quality, fast job exchange, and a possibility to print several different pictures next to each other, stand for the perfect solution for local brands, or promotional events.
2017 - EcoLogi award for Chemosvit Folie, a.s.
It involves a new, more ecological-friendly bags wrapping technology replacing the so-far used cardboard boxes. In this way, paper waste of boxes and cushions, stretch films and wooden pallets that the customer cannot use anymore, is getting minimized. Additionally, this way of packaging brings along other benefits, e.g. better goods protection, simplification of packaging process, transportation unit handling, pallet management, etc.
The system of plastic boxes is environmentally friendly as they can be used repeatedly and are recyclable. In this way, we contribute to the protection of the most precious value - our environment.
2017 - "Packaging of the Year 2017" for paper-look coffee pack Primo
This flexible packaging made of OPP/PETmet/LLDPE is original and unique in food industry. It has not only paper-look, but also paper-touch. The packaging features a typical roughness, indistinguishable from paper, quite unusual for rotogravure technology. Owing to this, it has a very luxury appearance and the right distribution of coated and uncoated areas provides it with genuine embossing effect. The packaging was also awarded by the Prize of Jury Chairwoman. This prize was introduced this year by Syba Packaging Institute, the organizer of the competition Packaging of the Year, the only competition in the Czech and Slovak markets in which the panel of expert judges appraise the best entries. 6 products with the highest rating got through to the finals, out of which Chemosvit Folie, as the only Slovak company, scored high with their paper-look coffee packaging. We are proud to be awarded the bronze medal.
The product that was also presented at Düsseldorf Interpack fair is very demanded by home and foreign customers for the packaging of coffee or chocolate.
2016 - SAVE FOOD for a cheese packaging
In 2016, the winner of this award became Chemosvit Folie with their packaging of sliced Gouda cheese in tubs. Packaging is made of a laminate of a transparent flexible PET film and a PE film with EVOH layer. It has an excellent barrier to water vapour, oxygen and aromatic matters. The packaging is flexoprinted, easy open and reclosable. The film will cling to the tub without the need of additional sealing material, e.g. hot-melt. In this way, the packed food has a longer shelf life.
This and other products winning Save Food Awards are presented at Interpack 2017 show, in the area of “Innovationpark”.
2015 - The Golden Seal Award for partial metallization
All in all, 13 organizations joined this competition in which 22 Golden Seals were awarded, and 54 appraisal protocols issued. As stated by the commission of printing experts, printing production in Slovakia has continued maintaining its very high quality level. The awarded product of Chemosvit Folie is a luxury packaging with a partial metallization affording new dimension of assessing a packaging. Its basis, however, is not the demetallization, a common method employed worldwide, but a shielded metallization, i.e. a targeted aluminium deposition on selected parts of packaging.
“Using partial metallization, we can create various pictures and transitions from 100% to 1% dot,” said Eva Sámelová, Marketing Manager of the company. Metallization is protected against abrasion by a surface coating, and various pictures can be created in the following printing process. This way of packaging converting can be applied on sheets, as well as on bags. The packaging is the result of our development headed by Martin Pitoňák, Sales and Marketing Director of Chemosvit Folie, in co-operation with Terichem company.
The mission of the Golden Seal competition is to appraise and promote top printing producers and support the development of printing industry in Slovakia. Chemosvit Folie can boast of several Golden Awards won in the last years.

This prestigious award from the world leader in confectionery business, is an appreciation of the company´s long-lasting stability, reliability, flexibility in responding to customer´s demands, and ability to observe deadlines and delivery times, and to reduce production and administration costs.
Chemosvit Folie, a.s. has been supplying Kraft, in particularly, with the packaging for biscuits, chocolate bars and candies.

“Winning the prize is binding for us,” emphasized Ladislav Dunaj. “Current Kraft, after acquiring Danone, is our dominant customer, and we feel very proud that it´s just our company out of their many suppliers that meets their high demands best.”
At the meeting in Bratislava, both parties have declared their interest in long-time and mutually advantageous co-operation that would bring stability to both businesses in today´s turbulent world. “High demands of the customer are also the reason for us not to stay resting on our laurels and continue searching for new ways and methods to increase our competitiveness which I find as a bonus in co-operating with the world leaders.”
2008 - The Golden Seal (Zlatá pečať)
17 organisations and 69 products were registered for this year’s competition. Out of these, the jury finally selected 18 products. They awarded 9 Gold Seals, 4 special awards and 5 honorary awards. One of the companies awarded was Chemosvit Folie for a stand-up pouch for cocoa-chocolate waffles Noir Truffe, for which they won the certificate of merit in the category of other printed products.

The film features excellent light, oxygen and water vapour barriers. It is a convenient pack, as it has an easy-open system. Additionally, seal strengths do not increase with heating, but remain stable over the temperature range of 100 – 140°C. The packaging of Extrafan MAT/RMX EO can be used on vertical packaging machines.
This was the third award won by Chemosvit in this competition.
