The announcement of the 2013/14 Worldstar Awards has marked an outstanding start to the New Year for Ardagh Group and the teams who produced three of the winners, Absolut Unique, Nemo and Ringo, which all received international recognition by the World Packaging Organisation.
Absolut Unique has gained worldwide acclaim as a daring concept to create nearly four million uniquely designed and decorated stunning special edition glass bottles for one of the world's leading vodka brands. The Nemo can for Bonduelle has been described as "a real game changer in metal packaging", representing the future of food packaging. RinGo® with its ring free construction and 20% material reduction offers real sustainability benefits to the paints and coatings market and improved ease of use for the consumer.
The Worldstar Awards are recognised for showcasing the best of the best in new packaging developments on a global stage. They are selected from those packages which have already won their national competition. All three Ardagh Group packs impressed the expert panel of judges with their originality, attention to detail and functional superiority.
"Winning a Worldstar award is a major achievement within the international packaging sector, so gaining three awards in the same year for products from both our glass and metal businesses demonstrates Ardagh's commitment to creating brand building packaging for our customers, " says Niall Wall, CEO Ardagh Group
