Renewable packaging company Stora Enso has announced the winners of its design competition focused on children's products.

First prize of The Recreate Packaging 2018 awards went to 'Fruit Glasses' by Viktoriia Schmidt and Arthur Schmidt, Germany.

The competition is aimed at driving innovative design and new packaging solutions based on renewable materials.


Entries were judged based on functionality and user experience, market potential, innovative use of material, suitability for production, as well as retail and logistics benefits.

The jury granted the 2nd prize to 'Snack+Break' by Denise Aimar, Valentina Rizzo, Antonella Zeverino and Chiara Borghi from Italy.
