2. Packaging innovation awards celebrate excellence

Excellence in any endeavor takes effort, commitment and passion. Here are 18 examples of packaging superiority in a fast-reading photo gallery, which presents winners of Dow Chemical Co.’s 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation competition in three of the four tiers: the Diamond Award (best of the best); Diamond Award finalists; and Gold Awards recipients. Not shown are the 11 Silver Award winners, but we do include a link to them.

We start with the Diamond Award, given to Procter & Gamble for its Air Assist technology. A flexible pouch is made more rigid—adding to the package’s functionality—by selectively inflating areas to add stiffness to the multiple layers of film.

P&G won two other awards this year, too. Other companies recognized in our gallery are Amcor Rigid Plastics, The Coca-Cola Co., Ecologic Brands Inc., Delivering Happiness Ltd. (aka Garçon Wines), PumpArt System, Rieke, Sealed Air, Uflex Ltd., CleanCut Technologies, Kanebo Cosmetics Inc., PepsiCo/Frito-Lay, PepsiCo Mexico Foods and ProAmpac, Sonoco Products Co., GSK and Wave Intl.
