34 winners and four Golds at the German Packaging Award 2023
The independent jury of the German Packaging Award 2023 has announced the winners of Europe’s largest showcase for packaging achievements. A total of 34 innovations from England, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria triumphed in the cross-material showcase organised by the German Packaging Institute (dvi) for the best solutions in packaging. The jury also presented four particularly groundbreaking innovations with the Gold Award.
You can take a look at all the award winners and Gold Award winners, presented with an image and the jury’s evaluation text here.
We are delighted with the high quality, diversity and range of innovations. We have winners across a wide range of materials, segments and applications. Whether aluminium, tin, plastic, wood, corrugated board, paper, cardboard, software or machines, whether tube, box, can, carton, cushioning material, machine, software, display, label, transport, repackaging or sales packaging – the companies in the packaging industry have pulled out all the stops and found clever, creative and intelligent solutions.
Sustainability, circular economy – and so much more!
A clear focus of the submissions in 2023 has once again been in the areas of sustainability, circular economy and climate and environmental protection. Basically, there is hardly any innovation that cannot have an impact in this area. But the range of first-class innovations that make a difference is again enormous.
The winners shine out with their designs in recycling, material substitution, reductions in transport volume, with a view to brand image, sales promotion or consumer activation, via material savings or CO2 reduction, through new functionalities or even more convenience, with smart multiple uses, in the area of reusable and online trade, in automation, flexibility or cost-effectiveness.
Festive award ceremony
We invited everyone to the “Meistersaal” historic concert hall at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on 13 September 2023 to celebrate the award-winning innovations and their creators. Together with 150 guests from the industry, we celebrated the winners and honoured them with resounding applause, a trophy and a certificate. In addition, four coveted Gold Packaging Awards were announced and presented. After all award winners and Gold Award winners had been presented with their trophies and certificates, the industry representatives found time to exchange ideas, reaffirm old contacts and make new ones at our flying buffet.
As ever, we are looking forward to receiving many submissions for next year’s largest packaging exhibition in Europe. Applications for the German Packaging Award 2024 will be open from February next year. We will let you know in plenty of time on this website.
