MEDIACOM-RELEASE-PACKAGING-COUNCIL-OF-NZ


Inaugural Awards For Environmentally Acceptable Packaging

On the 23 June 1999 the PACKAGING COUNCIL OF NEW ZEALAND (Inc) hosted, at the Maritime Museum Downtown Auckland, the presentation of Awards to those organisations and individuals who had submitted packaging judged as meeting criteria established to define ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE PACKAGING. The Associate Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Marie Hasler and the sponsors presented the Awards.

The AIM of the programme was to recognise and reward manufacturers and users of packaging deemed to be environmentally acceptable while meeting the prime objectives of containment and protection for which the packaging was designed.

Also included in the programme were innovative design concepts related to packages of the future. In all, nine awards were presented covering eight categories including the SUPREME AWARD for the entry considered by the Judges to be the most outstanding.

The eight categories and winners were:

3M NEW ZEALAND LTD Award for Excellence for INNOVATION IN DESIGN won by Visy Board New Zealand Ltd for the OTOR Packaging System

Coca-Cola Amatil (NZ) Ltd Award for Excellence for PACKAGING SYSTEMS won by Nestle New Zealand Ltd for Nestle Maggi & FIS Unitised Product Featuring the Astron Plastic Slip Sheet and Lion Breweries for Slip Sheet Palletisation

Judges and technical advisors included professionals in the fields of marketing, waste disposal, consumer rights, environmental groups, the primary sector and a university lecturer on packaging. The judges commented that of the twenty-four entries submitted all were of a very high standard and some represented a unique approach to the subject.

Support for the Awards programme included the commercial sector, tertiary institutions and local and central government.

The Awards will be held on bi-annual basis and it is hoped that the initial successes will encourage a greater number of entries in the future.

The entries will be exhibited for public viewing at the AUCKLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (Second floor) from the 5th to 23rd July.
