A reduction in food waste and a focus on collaboration were two of the major accomplishments recognized by judges last week in handing out top honours in this year’s DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.
Innovative primary and end-of line solutions, as well as retail packaging that boosts shelf appeal were big winners as the independent jury – drawn from experts across the industry – awarded 16 packing prizes in one, two or all three categories of innovation, sustainability and cost/waste Reduction.
The panel assessed 200 entries from 21 countries across the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors.
Leading brand owners, such as Heinz, Kraft, Pepperidge Farm, Cadbury and Unilever were recognised for their role in driver innovation, sustainability and collaboration with diamond, gold or silver prizes.
“The common thread was a focus on collaboration,” said lead DuPont Awards juror Brian Wagner, vice president, Packaging Technology Integrated Solutions. “It wasn't just one company doing it by themselves; they leveraged their suppliers strategically. There was a real focus on consumer insight on the impact of packaging at shelf and throughout the user experience.”
