The winners of the Crescents and Stars for Packaging Competition 2020 will be presented with Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies at a later date, once large scale gatherings are permitted due to the pandemic.
Cable Reel: Cable Reel is a functional two-pieces reel design made of corrugated cardboard. It is used for wrapping of plastic cables or wire. This environmentally-friendly solution is a sustainable substitute for plastic wrapping.
FloralBox solution: FloralBox is an e-commerce solution offering a modular system to securely ship potted plants of different types and sizes and in various combinations. The one-for-all insert accommodates different protection needs, with consumers delighted by the pristine condition the plants arrive in alongside the positive unboxing experience.
Unilever Recyclable PP Base Soup packaging: A recyclable mono-material film product was created for Knorr’s dry soup powder range, replacing a multi-material laminate. The packaging preserves the shelf-life of the food product and works with existing production machines. The product was developed by Mondi to help Unilever stay committed to using plastic packaging that is 100 per cent reusable, recyclable and compostable by 2025.
Orkla Metal Free Structure for Chips: Mondi’s metal-free high barrier laminate makes the packaging for Orkla Confectionery and Snacks Norway`s chips range recyclable by eradicating the need to include a metalised layer, retaining crispness and avoiding grease leakage.
Safe Bottle Box: Safe Bottle Box is designed to protect a single bottle from any impact during the e-commerce shipments. Thanks to the adjustable flap on the inner box, it can be adapted to bottles of different sizes.
One Piece: One Piece is an exhibition/display and transportation unit that provides advantages to the end consumer as well as to the manufacturer with its simple, shopping-friendly structure and its one-piece design.
