NEENAH, Wis. — Menasha Packaging on Wednesday announced receipt of two awards as part of the 69th annual National Paperboard Packaging Competition.
“Innovation and efficiency are cornerstones of the work we do every day at Menasha Packaging, so it is an honor to win these awards and be recognized by a panel of industry leaders,” stated James Snyder, general manager of Menasha Packaging’s Folding Carton facility, who accepted the award on behalf of Menasha Packaging.
Menasha Packaging received a Gold Award for the development of a 3-pack specialty carton used to visually showcase Purell’s hand sanitizer with Jelly Wrap carriers. The design showcased the product’s features while keeping efficiency in mind for the assembly and fulfillment process. The carton’s die-cut holes ensure the product is securely held in place while also allowing for maximum visibility for today’s hands-on shopper.
The company also received an Innovation Excellence award for its work with Group II Communications in the development of a paperboard novelty cap for McDonald’s. The Innovation Excellence category recognizes new and exciting package designs, designs that solve a problem in a unique way, meet or exceed market demands or take advantage of the benefits of paperboard packaging. Designed to mimic a ball cap, the novelty item is another option for McDonald’s franchisees to help encourage customers to get connected with the Team McDonald’s brand.
Judged by a panel of leading industry professionals, entries must be designed to distribute, market and protect a product, and must consist of 50% paperboard that is visible to the end user.
