PACT Group has won two gold awards at this year’s Australasian Packaging Innovation and Design Awards. The group won both the 2019 Packaging Innovation & Design of the Year Award: Beverage Category, and the 2019 Sustainable Packaging Design Special Award: Circular Economy.
The awards were won for the Lewis Road Creamery post-consumer sourced PCR, 100 percent recycled rPET milk bottle range. The rPET bottles and simple label design stood out as they are based on old-style glass milk bottles, enabling a nostalgic feel and level of authenticity.
Other winners included:
- Danone ELN Supply Point who took home the 2019 Packaging Innovation & Design of the Year Award: Food Category, for its sachet multipack for both the Aptamil and Karicare Infant Formula ranges.
- Impact International won the 2019 Packaging Innovation & Design of the Year Award: Health, Beauty & Wellness.
