Sustainable Fibre Packaging Shines at Australasian Packaging Awards

Sustainable, renewable fibre packaging has featured heavily at the Australasian Packaging Innovation and Design Awards announced today, showing the diversity, functionality and beauty of paper and cardboard as a packaging material.

“Fibre-based packaging solutions were finalists in almost every category at today’s awards, highlighting how food and grocery manufacturers, brand owners, product designers, retailers and consumers are responding to the sustainability agenda and the need to replace plastics in our supply chains,” CEO of the Australian Forest Product Association Ross Hampton said.

“It’s wonderful to see the sustainability and innovation of fibre packaging be recognised in this way, as a further demonstration of the opportunity to replace fossil-derived products, reduce waste and make real changes that will accelerate the circular economy.

“Forest-based industries, including paper, packaging and tissues provide climate-smart, environmentally and socially responsible answers to big challenges, not the least of which is replacing single-use and problematic plastics.

“We congratulate all of the winners and finalists, and look forward to seeing more incredible innovations in years to come.”

The annual Australasian Packaging Innovation and Design Awards are coordinated by the Australian Institute of Packaging, and are the exclusive feeder program for Australia and New Zealand for the prestigious WorldStar Packaging Awards run by the World Packaging Organisation. All 2022 PIDA winners will be automatically eligible for entry into the 2023 WorldStar Packaging Awards competition.
