“Mondi has been entering the WorldStar awards for a number of years and it is a pleasure to see how understanding of our capabilities has grown from strength to strength. Eight wins is testament both to the hard work and dedication of our R&D teams and the drive for sustainable innovations which is truly ingrained in our DNA. I’m especially pleased for the team in Corrugated Packaging who have beaten their previous record of five awards with seven wins this year. We look forward to the awards ceremony in May," said Armand Schoonbrood, COO, Mondi Corrugated Packaging.
The multi award-winning, BarrierPack Recyclable is a 100 percent recyclable flexible plastic laminate. A number of the products ensure a maximization of space or capacity such as the "pallet utilization support system," a simple system to fill voids in stacking pallets, and the "pick up tray," which substitutes wooden baskets for corrugated cardboard trays that allow for a 71 percent heavier load. Other products, like the Glass7Box, reduce waste through the creation of a universal packaging solution which can accommodate different products, in this case seven different types of wine glasses.
The Gala Awards Ceremony for the WorldStar Packaging Awards will be held on May 15, 2019, in Prague, Czech Republic. Judging took place in China, during the WPO 2018 Board Meeting.
