Winners of ADF Innovation Awards announced

Paris Packaging Week organisers capped off a memorable week by naming the ADF Innovation Award winners.

The 19-strong ADF Innovation Awards jury, which included representatives from the likes of L’Oréal, Unilever International, Procter & Gamble, Henkel and Coty, decided to make six awards and issue six certificates in celebration of the best innovations and launches in the past year in the global market for aerosol and dispensing technology. 

Alain D’Haesse, Jury President of the ADF Innovation Awards, said: “The process was smooth and efficient because we have a great panel of experts who know what they are talking about.

“The trend is sustainability across all categories of products and criteria. It’s clear to see this trend or movement is coming, even if it is not in the mainstream of the market. The direction is clear.

“I’d like to thank all of those who submitted an entry. It’s fantastic to see people challenging themselves and getting something reviewed by their peers. That made for a high standard of competition, and the competition was fierce. So, the winners can be particularly proud of what they achieved and it will hopefully energise development departments.”

Leopold Wernich, Managing Director of Tubex, a producer of aluminium aerosol cans, was delighted to land one award and three certificates for its holistic work in sustainability. “It is great to see the team recognised for its work in creating unique technology that opens up new design possibilities,” he said. “We’re trying to create products that have ecological and economic benefits, and this recognition is further evidence we are now valued as experts, and for that, we should be truly proud and honoured.”
