Packaging Innovation Awards Winners Announced By DuPont

Each year, DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation awards companies from around the globe by evaluating the packaging innovation in areas including materials, technology, design, and processes.  Now in the 29th year, DuPont has announced the winners of the latest competition in packaging innovation, some of which include hybrid printing technology and compostable materials.
 
Plastipak Packaging was awarded for its direct object printing technology using white-plus process coloring printing for full package decoration, which makes it possible for packages to be decorated in the production line.  
 
The highest honor a company can receive from DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation is the Diamond Award, which was given to Fritz Water Vest which is ergonomic, antimicrobial, reusable, and designed to help those in developing countries carry as much as 20 lbs. of water safely and easily.  Judges were impressed with this out-of-the-box solution addressing a serious global issue.
 
Some of the companies who were recipients of gold awards include Insignia Technologies for its Freshtag shelf-life indicator, Brazil's Froneri for its cardboard ice cream cup featuring a PP (preprinted polypropylene) in-mold label, and PPI Technologies for its MosquitoPaQ.  South Korean AMOREPACIFIC's Prime Reserve jar was another winner of a Gold Award for its innovation in material waste, reducing waste by 76% through a new injection molding process.
 
Recipients of the silver award included Farmacy Beauty's Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask for its outstanding execution of package design, USA-based GreenBlue for its How2Recycle universal recycling labeling system designed for consumers, and others including Bemis and Amcor Rigid Plastics.
 
Other companies were recipients of Diamond Finalist Awards including Sealed Air's Cryovac OptiDure Abuse Bag, Zume Pizza's compostable Pizza Pod, and Plantic R bio-based barrier packaging that's recyclable and renewable, among others.
