Ecolean wins Worldstar awards with lightweight packaging
The packaging manufacturer won the beverage category for its Ecolean Air packaging together with Australian customer Bannister Downs Dairy’s flavoured beverages.
The company said its Ecolean Air package has consumer convenience benefits and a clear sustainability profile compared to other package types for liquid food.
Being 50–60% lighter ensures reductions throughout the life cycle of the package to minimise the environmental impact of packaging. Using fewer raw materials results in fewer impacts through material production and transport without compromising on convenience and food safety.
“Ecolean has been a key part of the work we do to ensure our business is not only at the forefront of innovation in our industry, but also to have as small an impact on our environment as possible,” said Sue Daubney, Managing Director, Bannister Downs Dairy.
The WorldStar Competition is one of the major events of the WPO and is the pre-eminent global award in packaging. Each year WPO recognises the best of the best in packaging innovations from across the globe.
This year, the international judging panel was composed of 33 judges from 33 packaging associations, members of WPO, who judged 345 packaging projects from 35 countries.
