The contest was open to a number of categories including Food, Beverage, Alcoholic Beverages, Health and Beauty, Industrial Display, and other packaging. A panel of seven judges from various parts of the packaging industry evaluated and selected the winners.
Aptar received an award in the Food category for its new closure, Tapered, on the Hunt’s BBQ package. Tapered is a lightweight solution for inverted packaging. It uses Aptar’s SimpliSqueeze® valve, which provides directional dispensing and a clean product cutoff.
Aptar also received an award in the Beverage category for the Light Original Sport Cap on the LIFEWTR package. This closure brings convenience and drinking comfort to beverage bottles and helps to improve shelf presence. The closure can also be easily opened with one hand, making it the perfect solution for on-the-go consumers.
