Out of 104 entries, eight packages made of Metsä Board’s cartonboards have made the final shortlist in the annual Pro Carton/ECMA Awards for outstanding carton packaging. Metsä Board’s products are used by finalists in these four categories:
Confectionery – four finalists
Food – one finalist
Non-food – one finalist
Volume market – two finalists
The ECMA best packaging awards have been run for 16 years, and many prize-winning concepts have provided a springboard for further ideas.
The judges evaluated all entries against the following criteria:
Structural design; graphic design; marketing concept; innovation; carton manufacturing sophistication; packaging performance; machineability, processing and handling
The winners of each category will be announced on 19 September 2013.
