James Cropper toasts eco-designed packaging in the champagne market

Collaboration between James Cropper and Le Sanglier on new eco-packaging for Rogge-Cereser champagne.

James Cropper, one of the world’s most innovative papermakers, has partnered with French, family-owned Champagne maker, Rogge-Cereser and French packaging producer, L’Agence Le Sanglier, to create an industry leading example of eco-design in the luxury drinks market.

Using paper from the Rydal Packaging Collection, which unites beauty and sustainability, the minimalist design of the Rogge-Cereser champagne box infuses the art of gifting with environmental responsibility.

Chosen for its excellent credentials in lamination, embossing and creasing, the champagne box marks the first time Rydal paper, respectfully produced in the English Lake District, has been used for Champagne packaging.

To bring the concept to life, the team of packaging professionals at Le Sanglier used their innovative ‘Texturflex’ technology to add an overall bubbly textured finish to the case, creating a beautiful back-drop to the signature marque of the Champagne house.

The Rogge-Cereser eco-case is fully recyclable, made with 100% natural fibres from a mix of FSC certified sources.  The minimalist design, using a single material, invites the consumer to celebrate those key moments while caring for the environment – and can simply be recycled after use.

While aligning closely to Le Sanglier’s commitment to sustainability, the producer chose Rydal paper because it embossed and folded beautifully. Designed specifically for packaging, the paper’s inherent surface and tensile strength characteristics ensured that it converted without any cracked edging: a key point for Champagne boxes.
