Performance showcase of the best and most innovative solutions packagingThe German Packaging Award 2015 gets under wayThe starter’s flag for the German Packaging Award in 2015 has fallen. Until the end of June, companies, organizations and individuals from home and abroad can submit their innovations, ideas and products on packaging of all kinds. The host of the competition under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is the German Packaging Institute (dvi) in Berlin.
Nature Multipack, the winner of German Packaging Award 2014 in the Sales Packaging category“Designed as a performance showcase, the German Packaging Award has been
generating a fair and exciting competition of ideas and solutions since
1963. Over the years, it has developed into the most prestigious
European award in the packaging arena,” says Burkhard Lingenberg, dvi
Board member and chairman of the Advisory Board of the German Packaging

“Over 5,000 companies are working in the packaging
industry in Germany alone. With their productivity and their ability to
hold their ground in today’s dynamic markets, the over 400,000-strong
packaging industry workforce secures around 2% of the German GNP. This
is only possible due to constant innovation and creative research in
finding the best solutions for consumers, markets and the environment,”
says Lingenberg. “With a nomination or award for the German Packaging
Award, these companies can distinguish themselves sustainably towards
customers and competitors, employees and professionals, as well as the
general public.”

The German Packaging Award is awarded in the
five categories of sales packaging; labels, seals and other packaging
aids; display and promotional packaging; transport and logistics
packaging and packaging machines, engineering and technology. In
addition, the competition offers a stage for young talent in training
and education. The award ceremony will take place at the end of
September at the start of the trade fair FachPack in Nuremberg.
