The German packaging institution awards the most innovative and creative packaging solution every year – from tiny path breaking details to fundamental improvements, everything is taken into account. The German packaging award is an international, cross-sector and -material competition. It is conferred in five categories: 1. Sales packaging, 2. Labels, closures and other packaging aids, 3. Display and promition packaging, 4. Transport and logistics packaging, 5. Packaging machines, technique and technology. Furthermore trainees and students get the chance to win a special award in the “young talents” category. From all packaging solutions handed in, the jury of experts from trade associations, leading research institutes, universities and the specialized press, elects the prize winners. The festive award ceremony will take place at the end of September this year, just in time for the “FackPack” fair in Nürnberg. Follow this link for further information: www.verpackungspreis.de
