A valued partner, a worthy winner

Futura is delighted to announce that its valued customer and partner in innovation, Papelera San Andrés de Giles (PSAG) of Argentina, has won the Tissue Innovation category at the prestigious PPI Awards. President Maximo Gagliardi accepted the prize at a ceremony in Brussels on 21 November, attended by leaders of the tissue industry and the wider paper industry.

The Futura lines on which PSAG produces its prize-winning Felpita Kids range, represent the ideal solution for creating new benchmarks in the market. The team at PSAG have used the technology to the full and these skills, combined with brilliant design and marketing, have resulted in a truly stand-alone tissue roll product.

PSAG remains the only company in Argentina that can print up to four colours on tissue rolls.

The company paid close attention to the quality and the content of its designs, keeping in mind added value and attractiveness to consumers.
