Six finalists for Metsä Board at the 2018 European Carton Excellence Award

 

​Pro Carton and ECMA have recently revealed the finalists for the European Carton Excellence Award 2018, with six out of 36 finalists produced from Metsä Board’s paperboards. Each of these finalist cartons were submitted by Metsä Board customers into the following categories: Frozen & Chilled Foods, Fast/Convenience Foods, Dry Foods & Beverages, Confectionery, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals and Non-Food.

“We are extremely excited that once again a wide selection of cartons using our paperboards have been selected as finalists,” Mika Paljakka, VP Sales EMEA, Metsä Board. “As the focus is now to reduce the use of non-renewable materials and meet consumer needs for total safety and an improved user experience, we firmly believe that our fresh fibre paperboards are well positioned to meet these requirements. When our paperboards are combined with cutting-edge design, as shown by the quality of the entries received for these awards, the benefits are universal.”

All the entries can be viewed and voted for by visiting www.procarton.com. Public voting closes on 16 September and the winners will be announced at the Award Gala in Riga, Latvia on 20 September.

The European Carton Excellence Awards attract hundreds of entries, with the jury looking for excellence in design, convenience, brand communication and the major role cartonboard plays as a sustainable packaging material.
