"Continuous pour" and "anti-glug" are two of the features of the winner of the Design Innovation of the Year Award in the Domestic & Household Category.

This award recognises organisations that have designed innovative packaging and processing materials, packaging and machinery/equipment within domestic and household items, toys, stationery, gifts, clothing, garden equipment, and decorating.

The Materials & Packaging winner is Precise Pour for continuous pour, anti-clog and tamper-evidence by Caps and Closures.

The Precise Pour Tap by Caps and Closures is designed to be used on bottles ranging from 500ml up to 25L to dispense liquid, and is tamper-evident.

The Precise Pour has many advantages including continuous pour, anti-glug, low height for stacking bottles, opting for venting, and knock-resistant.

This product is designed to replace any tap that requires the customer to puncture the bottle and any tap that is designed to be sold as an additional component.

A High Commendation was awarded to Animal Instinct’s Feed My Fur Baby by OJI Fibre Solutions easy-to-open, re-sealable corrugated solution with scoop.

The second scoop (spare) hidden in the box design is a clever use of otherwise unused board. The simple flexographic one-colour print does a great job in providing ‘point of difference’ for the product, and keeps it clean and easy to read. Feed My Fur Baby is a creative and functional design that moves away from traditional bags widely used in the Pet food market segment. The inclusion of a corrugated scoop also eliminates the need for a plastic scoop.
