Carton bottle wins German Packaging Award

Wednesday, 02 October, 2013


SIG Combibloc’s combidome - a bottle made of cardboard - has been awarded the German Packaging Award (Deutscher Verpackungspreis) in the ‘Best Sales Packaging: Beverages’ category.

The judges praised the carton pack’s good pouring behaviour and optimised handling in terms of emptying out the product, compared to other beverage packaging solutions.

“We’re thrilled that, after the Beverage Innovation Award, combidome has now also picked up the German Packaging Award,” said Axel Meier, head of marketing cluster Europe North, and Olivier Peterges, development engineer at SIG Combibloc, on accepting the award.

“This demonstrates that our packaging innovation is a winner nationally and internationally. combidome is a genuinely innovative product that has huge potential to gain a real foothold in the beverage sector. That makes us very proud.”

The German Packaging Award has been awarded since 1996 by the Deutsche Verpackungsinstitut (dvi, the German Packaging Institute). Under the auspices of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics, an independent jury of experts from business, research, teaching and the specialist press chooses prize-winners in six categories: sales packaging; labels, seals and other packaging aids; display and promotional packaging; transport and logistics packaging; packaging machines (engineering and technology); and young talent.

The products are judged on specified criteria, including innovation, sustainability, functionality, design, cost-effectiveness, safety, process optimisation and merchandising ability.
