Each year the ADF Awards and the PCD PARIS Awards reward the most significant innovative packaging of the year on the European and/or world market.
105 applications competed this year.
The winners were recently shortlisted in Paris by two separate juries of professionals bringing together independent experts, professionals and journalists.
It was in a studious atmosphere, with exchanges and debates that were sometimes lively, that all the products in competition were examined: New gestures, opening and closing systems, waterproofing, refillability, 3D printing, hot stamping, mechanism, design, decoration, new technology, traceability, finishing, compression technology... were the recurrent terms shared and used by the jury members with the greatest frequency and which allowed us to award this year: 9 Awards et 12 certificats pour les PCD Awards 5 Awards et 4 certificats pour les ADF Awards
