This year’s Diamond Award winner goes to Procter & Gamble’s Air Assist, liquid packaging technology that uses compressed gas for rigidity in flexible films and reduces plastic use per package by 50 per cent compared to a rigid bottle, and doesn’t require extra protection during shipping.
The Dow Packaging Innovation Awards continue the successful legacy of the DuPont Packaging Awards.
Notably, P&G became the first company in the awards’ 30-year history to have winners in all categories. It was a Diamond Finalist for its Febreze ONE. Febreze One has the same odor elimination power of other Febreze products with a unique two-in-one formula that makes it perfect for removing odors from air and fabric. By leveraging Flairosol sprayer technology, Febreze ONE produces an ultra-fine mist without the use of aerosols and comes in a refillable package with no dyes and no heavy perfumes. P&G also received a Gold Award and Silver Award.
The judges said the breadth of the winning innovations is impressive, from packaging that increases a flowers’ shelf life to up to 30 days without additional watering, to a flat wine bottle specially designed to fit in UK mail slots.
