For the fifth time in a row, Forum Wellpappe Austria awarded outstanding product ideas and sustainable corrugated packaging solutions. A total of 49 contributions were submitted this year. An expert jury nominated 18 finalists and identified the winners. The Wellpappe Austria Award is presented in six categories: creative, constructive, point-of-sale, display, sustainable and offspring. In addition, there was a special prize for the best photo of apprentices on Instagram - the corrugated #instaChallenge.
In focus Sustainability
"Packaging concepts made from corrugated board are in vogue because they are made of natural resources and thus sustainably protect our environment," emphasized Max Hölbl from Forum Wellpappe Austria. For the first time, the award took place in partnership with Forum Ökologisch Verpacken (FÖV), an initiative of corrugated board associations from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Spokesman, Oliver Wolfrum, pointed out to the increasing importance of corrugated board for the circular economy: "Sustainable packaging, careful use of natural resources and less waste - these are the topics that industry and commerce, as well as consumers, address and politics. "
We are very proud that three winners of the awards used our corrugated board paper to produce their products! Congratulations!!
