Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, has scooped six competency awards in the Turkish Crescents and Stars for Packaging 2020 Competition, organised by the Turkish Packaging Manufacturer's Association.
Among the six awards Mondi took home, two were for flexible packaging – the Unilever Recyclable PP Base Soup Packaging from Mondi Kalenobel and the Orkla Metal Free Structure for Chips from Mondi Kalenobel, while in Food the food category it won the award for the Safe Bottle Box from Mondi Karaman Plant.
Almost 280 different packaging products were assessed across the 13 award categories in the 9th Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition. The award wins demonstrate Mondi's cross-market approach to packaging, spanning a range of industries and serving very diverse business and consumer audiences.
Sevinç Yener Çimecioğlu, CEO Mondi Tire Kutsan said: "The standard of entries was very high, so we are delighted to receive these awards. The Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition credits the way we combine creativity and technology to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, finding ideal, unique packaging solutions for their goods. We are contributing to a better world by making innovative solutions using paper where possible, plastic when useful."
Umit Sahin, Managing Director, Mondi Kalenobel added: "It is fantastic to be recognised for the sustainable packaging we created in collaboration with our customers Orkla and Unilever. This is testament to the hard work of our teams and the strong relationships we enjoy with our global clients. Our aim is always to work closely with our valued partners through our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions, to create sustainable packaging that works for the products, consumers and the environment."
The winners of the Crescents and Stars for Packaging Competition 2020 will be presented with Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies at a later date, once large-scale gatherings are permitted due to the pandemic.
Unilever Recyclable PP Base Soup packaging: A recyclable mono-material film product was created for Knorr's dry soup powder range, replacing a multi-material laminate. The packaging preserves the shelf-life of the food product and works with existing production machines. The product was developed by Mondi to help Unilever stay committed to using plastic packaging that is 100 per cent reusable, recyclable and compostable by 2025.
Orkla Metal Free Structure for Chips: The metal-free high barrier laminate from Mondi makes the packaging for Orkla Confectionery and Snacks Norway’s chips range recyclable by eradicating the need to include a metalised layer, retaining crispness and avoiding grease leakage.
Safe Bottle Box: Safe Bottle Box is designed to protect a single bottle from any impact during the e-commerce shipments. Thanks to the adjustable flap on the inner box, it can be adapted to bottles of different sizes.
