1. What is your favourite product and why?

My favourite material a the moment are edible packaging made my organic fibres, natural binder and some tasty. One example is Wikicell: “WikiCell is a deliciously edible form of packaging that encloses food or drinks in ways similar to how nature protects a coconut or an orange. Imagine juice, yogurt, ice cream, fruit – a nearly endless variety of foods and drinks – wrapped in delicious natural edible packaging.” http://www.wikicells.com

2. What is the latest trend in your industry ?

Because Germany is stepping out of atomic energy by 2022 I can see a trend in our industry working with energy efficient and energy producing technology.
