  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

MIDLAND, Mich., Sept. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Dow announced the winners of the 2019 Packaging Innovation Awards, which recognize the packaging industry's top achievements in innovative packaging design, materials, technologies and processes.

The highest honor, the Diamond Award, went to Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd., Packaging Division's DNP Functional Film Complex PET plastic bottle, an environmentally conscious and brand-friendly bottle alternative that offers a distinct glass-like appearance due to a peelable outer layer which can act as an oxygen barrier when combined with PET. Currently, many beverage bottles are made with glass because of its barrier properties and sense of luxury, despite its heavier weight and higher risk of breakage. Glass often shatters while its collected or when its sorted, and its residue can contaminate other products that could otherwise be recycled. The PET plastic bottle retains all the qualities consumers love about glass bottles -- the feel and sense of luxury -- while creating a recyclable, lightweight and virtually unbreakable product.

"This year we received a record-breaking number of submissions for innovative, forward-thinking packaging designs from around the world," said Diego Donoso, business president for Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics. "Congratulations to all of the 2019 winners.  I'm continually impressed by the world-class innovations that we see year after year."

The 2019 Packaging Innovation Awards hosted by Dow, previously known as the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, is now in its 31st year, and is the industry's longest-running independently judged packaging awards program. Each year, the judging panel consists of professionals from around the world in a wide range of fields, including design, engineering, retail, converting and academia.

"It's an honor to be part of an event that's dedicated to independently seeking out the best packaging innovations regardless of location and application," said lead judge David Luttenberger, global packaging director for Mintel Group, Ltd. "I'm truly impressed by this year's winners and excited to see so many companies from all over the world constantly innovating to meet changing consumer demands and sustainable practices."
