DuPont Names Packaging Winners

May 20, 2014

Unilever takes top commendation.

DuPont recently presented 16 awards recognizing packaging excellence at its 26th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, the industry's longest-running, global, independently judged competition highlighting innovative packaging solutions and collaboration throughout the value chain. 
 
This year, the program received nearly 200 entries from 31 countries, marking the second-highest number of entries and broadest reach in the program’s 26-year history.  
 Unilever (United Kingdom) took the Diamond Award top honor for its line of compressed deodorants.  The international panel of judges recognized Unilever for excellence in all three award criteria – Technological Advancement, Responsible Packaging and Enhanced User Experience.  


 
Unilever’s new containers carry the same amount of product in a package half the size of the original. The smaller packages meet airline carry-on requirements, allow retailers to stock more products on the same shelf space and significantly cut transportation costs as more units fit on a pallet and into each truck.

In addition to the Diamond Award, the panel of independent judges selected five gold winners and 10 silver winners representing 11 countries.  Gold Award recipients demonstrate excellence in any two of the criteria, while Silver Award recipients show excellence in any one of the criteria.
