On 7 October, the 2020 ECEA winners were announced. "The European Carton Excellence Award is the most prestigious prize for foldable cardboard packaging. Remmert Dekker Packaging's product won a Platinum Award. That was in the 'virgin fiber food packaging' category," says a Remmert Dekker spokesperson.
The winning product is a unique snack tomato cup. The Dutch company developed this packaging for its fresh retail partner, Den Berk Délice. It's an alternative for plastic tomato shakers in the snack vegetable aisle. This innovative design is based on the need to be different and not use any plastic.
The hexagonal shape, with its slanting folds, makes it stand out in the product group. But, the packaging offers more. Fun window openings give a sneak peek and ventilation. The folding lid is easy to use and resealable. The print design contributes to a strong brand story and stopping power on the shelf.
"This Platinum Award in 2020 reinforces Remmert Dekker Packaging position. It's an innovative packaging partner. In 2019, there were wins at the Pentawards and NL Packaging Awards. Looking ahead, Remmert Dekker Packaging will continue focusing entirely on innovation and sustainability. Cardboard will be the medium of choice for that," the spokesperson concludes.
