Mondi has recently received two ScanStar awards and two Obal Roku awards, recognizing its expertise in automotive, eCommerce, and FMCG packaging solutions. Mondi Ansbach, Germany, developed the double ScanStar award-winning transportation packaging solutions for Volvo. The team works closely with its automotive industry customers to create value-added corrugated solutions that protect heavy-duty goods such as brake boosters and headlamps while improving processes and logistics, it said. The ScanStar jury especially highlighted these factors — cost-effectiveness, sustainability, stability, and improvement in work ergonomics.
“Our stakeholders at the plant are very pleased with this packaging concept when it comes to usability and quality,” explained Paulo Soeiro, packaging engineer at Volvo Cars, about Mondi’s brake booster solution.
At this year’s Obul Roka awards, Mondi Bupak, Czech Republic, won in the Technology and Process category with its special edition sparkling wine box for Bohemia Sekt, which stood out due to the imaginative design and high printability capabilities of the Bupak plant. Mondi’s EnvelopeMailer won the eCommerce category, giving customers a fully recyclable alternative to polyethylene bags and polyethylene-coated products when shipping eCommerce goods.
Armand Schoonbrood, chief operating officer – Corrugated Solutions at Mondi, said, “We believe in packaging that is sustainable by design. Our designers have an innovation mind-set that sets standards in the packaging market. I am proud of the recognition of our innovative products and commitment to service and quality is receiving.”
All four awards qualify for the international WorldStar awards run by the World Packaging Organization (WPO). The closing date for entries is in October, and the results will be announced by 15 December.
