Smurfit Kappa Wins 13 WorldStar Awards for Sustainable Packaging – Covering Printing Inks, Coatings and Allied Industries

Kappa Smurf continued to demonstrate its leadership in innovative and sustainable packaging solutions by winning 13 2022 WorldStar awards.

Innovative solutions, including revolutionary corrugated packaging for transporting fresh fish, a paper-based ceiling light that replaces metal and plastic fittings, and a space-saving and easy-to-assemble packaging solution for confectionery, have all received honors at the 2022 awards.

The Beverages category was one of the areas where Smurfit Kappa shone in this year’s awards. Its TopClip packaging solution, which is a sustainable alternative to shrink wrap commonly used to bundle can multipacks, won an award.

TopClip is one of the products in Smurfit Kappa’s Better Planet Packaging portfolio that has attracted considerable interest from companies looking to reduce their environmental footprint.

Smurfit Kappa’s e-commerce credentials were also recognized with a gin slick pack and ‘The BeeeerBox’, a one-piece insert for three bottles or cans, selected as winners by the judging panel.

A winner in the Point of Sale category was the ‘Winoteka Netta’ packaging solution for wine. The freestanding display is made of corrugated cardboard and includes decorative wine bags and baskets for customers to package their wine.

“We are delighted and honored to have been recognized with 13 awards at this prestigious event for our industry,” said Saverio Mayer, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Europe.

Smurfit Kappa’s 13 winning products hail from Brazil, Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Mexico, Poland, Slovakia and Sweden. The WorldStar Global Packaging Awards ceremony will take place in Milan in May.
