This year, four of the European Carton Excellence trophies were awarded to AR Packaging, confirming its broad range of packaging innovations. The different packaging solutions highlight delicate finishing, excellent product presentation and plastic reduction and replacement.
The four winners of the European Carton Excellence Award in Gold were:
- Dental Sticks
- Curodent sensitive
- Rose Gift box
- Picard Frozen Creation
“We are delighted by the jury’s decision to honour each of the individual developments considering they all fulfil different challenges – some are driven by sustainability others create awareness,” says Ralf Mack, Group Innovation Director, AR Packaging. “We are proud of the great performance that builds upon the collaborative effort of our local innovation teams. Their creative approaches to fulfil customer demands and respect product requirements are inspiring and a great advocate for cartonboard based packaging.”
All four packaging innovations have been developed and produced at the local plants in Europe. AR Packaging Swiss in St. Gallen, Switzlerland has put effort into replacing a plastic packaging with a recyclable cartonboard packaging for the Dental Sticks, creating an attractive presentation box for Curodent sensitive and designing an eye-catching Rose Gift Box. The innovative, fibre-based ice-cream packaging for Picard comes from AR Packaging France in Cholet.
