Placon Shines Bright Winning Two WorldStar Special Awards
Placon has been announced as the winner of two (2) Bronze WorldStar Special Awards, in the Packaging that Saves Food and Marketing categories. The WorldStar awards are an annual award given by the World Packaging Organization and are the pre-eminent international award in packaging. WorldStar illustrates the continuous advancement of packaging design and technology to create a standard of packaging excellence. There are over 60 packaging award submissions and from those groups, the judges select three (3) per category to compete for gold, silver and bronze. These categories are President’s Award, Sustainability Award, Marketing Award and Packaging that Saves Food Award. Placon was the only company among all submissions to win more than one Special Award.
The Bronze WorldStar Special Award – Marketing category was award to the PACLOCK Bi-Fold Clamshell. This package design allows PACLOCK to have 100% more space to hold graphic and product information within the package. More product information allows the end customer to read and learn about the product prior to purchase, which will increase point of sale by having more information at the fingertips of the customer.
Our very own stock food product, HomeFresh® Entrée was the winner of the Bronze WorldStar Special Award in the Packaging that Saves Food category. Designed to stack neatly, to avoid tipping over and causing a mess for the end user. It also features a leak resistant lid, vented or non-vented lid options and is microwavable. Simply microwave, wash and reuse. There is no better way to save food and make cleanup easier than with HomeFresh® Entrée containers.
