DuPont honors excellence in packagingThe 26th annual DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation presented 16 awards to companies from 11 countries at its ceremony May 15.

According to DuPont, the event is the industry’s longest-running, global, independently judged competition awarding innovations in packaging.

The program received about 200 entries this year, the second highest in the program history.

Judges evaluated companies on three criteria—technological advancement, responsible packaging and enhanced user experience.

Several packaging innovations in the food and beverage industry were recognized with gold awards including VerDeSoft—Packaging Design and Technology of Germany, which won for its easy-squeeze pasta pouch. Other gold winners were Amcor Flexibles for its separable marinades pouch and Parakh Agro Industries, Ltd. for its flexible shelf-stable milk pouch.

“The Packaging Awards continue to celebrate innovation and champion collaboration,” said William Harvey, president of DuPont Packaging and Industrial Polymers. “We updated the award categories this year to reflect emerging trends and amplify the consumer’s role in driving innovation.”’

DuPont said consumer convenience earned high marks in the competition with 75 percent of the winning packaging solutions bringing a higher degree of convenience.
