Leygatech awarded at ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022: exclusive interview between innovation, CSR and progress


Winner of three awards at the 2022 edition of ALL4PACK Emballage Paris, Leygatech has distinguished itself as a major player in the packaging revolution by placing CSR at the heart of its strategies.

Leygatech responds to the expectations of professionals and consumers by elevating pro-environmental considerations to the level of priorities, in order to initiate and contribute to the ongoing transition towards a circular economy.

We interviewed Dorothée Souvignet, Communications and Marketing Manager, who answered our questions about Leygatech’s participation in ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022 and the impact on the company’s business after the show.

What is your business philosophy and the values that have made Leygatech successful in the market?

We are an SME with 200 employees, which allows us to be a company on a human scale, and to know each other. We are committed to having ever more efficient tools, in order to be able to offer the best to our customers in all circumstances. This is how we became the leader in polyethylene (PE) barrier film in France. Our core values are agility, the spirit of conquest, benevolence and, of course, the spirit of innovation.

What motivated your participation in ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022?

We have been participating in the Paris “Salon de l’emballage” for more than 20 years, regardless of its name or form over the years. It is a major exhibition, a real crossroads for the packaging industry, bringing together all the companies and players in the sector on an international level – it would be a shame not to be part of it. The ALL4PACK Emballage Paris exhibition allows us to meet our suppliers, customers and prospects, as well as to raise awareness and promote education about our plastic material, which has been so criticized for years and even more so since the AGEC and resilience laws.

What are the main products and innovations highlighted by Leygatech at this year’s event?

We have talked a lot about the circular economy. It has become our main issue, in fact. We have to help and support our customers, or future customers, to find the most eco-responsible solutions for replacing or improving the packaging of their products.

Leygatech has been investing in MDO technology for three years, as well as a full range of films, allowing multi-material packaging to be replaced by single-material PE, before guaranteeing 100% recyclable packaging. As an added bonus, PE has a pre-existing recycling pathway that creates a pool of recycled material, thus supporting the circular economy loop all the way to the final process.

For this edition of ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022, we received different trophies rewarding a film developed in consortium with several partners, which allows to propose a sustainable solution to seal reusable stainless steel or glass trays, for example. We also showed a product, THINOX, which allows us to offer a real sustainable solution to supermarkets and local authorities, in order to meet the requirements of the 3R decree.

What is the place of CSR in your new strategies, project studies and ongoing innovations?

CSR has always existed, but it did not have a name. We are located in a rural area, and we are committed to preserving it. We are located in a rural area, and we are committed to preserving it, both environmentally and in human terms, notably by being partners of various local associations. We have always bought local wherever possible… As I said in my introduction, we are a human-scale business! For the past two years, we have been setting up more actions and/or events on the subjects of safety and QWL.

All our innovations are driven by the transition to the circular economy and the timeless desire to improve the image of our business. We have been a member of EcoVadis, a comprehensive CSR assessment company, for over three years. They awarded us a silver medal again this year, with a score of 61/100, which we will try to improve in 2023.

Tell us about the impact of the ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2022 exhibition on your business, the meetings and partnerships that have resulted…

The impact of the exhibition was good, with more than 150 visits to the stand during the four days, in the midst of which we had the pleasure of meeting our partners, of course. Projects are being developed through trials and tests, but we also received orders from new partners. We were awarded the ALL4PACK Innovations trophy at the same time as two packaging Oscars. This allowed us to increase our visibility during the exhibition, which was also an opportunity for visitors to learn more about our company and all our products and projects directly from our teams.

What innovations can you reveal to us, in preview of the ALL4PACK Emballage Paris 2024 edition?

I can’t tell you anything at this time, but I can tell you that we are still working in the best direction!

We remain alert to Leygatech’s ongoing innovations, with CSR at the heart of each project and the circular economy as a backdrop. See you in 2024 for the next edition of the international exhibition ALL4PACK Emballage Paris, registration is open!
