How Danone won the WorldStar Packaging Award 2017

Good things happen when you cooperate. Like creating wonderful packaging and winning a WorldStar Award along the way.

Danone’s Aptamil Profutura pack is already superior because of its convenience and hygiene levels. Its intuitive packaging effortlessly explains itself, and you can easily disassemble and fully recycle it.

Everybody happy
So when we were asked to provide it with a folding carton wrap, we set out to match its high standards – on all levels. Our idea? Use printing techniques to create a stunning user experience, so the wrap makes the message shine on all sides. Moreover, we designed a custom automation process to elevate efficiency and maximize machine speed during production.

This award is a wonderful confirmation of work that pushed boundaries. It was packed with innovation, creativity, automation and, moreover, the right kind of teamwork to bring it all together.” - Frits Brinkerhof, Business Project Director, Danone Nutricia
