LONDON, Jan. 4, 2017 (Press Release) -DS Smith led the packaging industry with an astounding 12 WorldStar awards.
The prizes were won in a variety of areas highlighting the breadth of expertise available from DS Smith’s packaging and display strategists: from innovative display and POS materials, to transport packaging that makes the entire supply cycle run smoother and exceptional sustainability performance from some entrants there were numerous reasons for DS Smith to be proud.
The 12 winning entrants came from across the DS Smith network with the UK team leading the way with six awards across four categories including some delicious work for The Amazing Chocolate Workshop, a blooming good box for Flowers Direct and some heavy lifting for Jaguar Land Rover amongst others.
Germany was the next most successful, particularly their sales-boosting display creation for Maggi, “Familien fix & Frisch” which has been previously commended for its innovative design and construction.
Our colleagues in Spain and Sweden also got involved in winning awards. The incredible Octagon Box, which previously won a ScanStar award, increases the number of products per pallet by 33% and reduces transport costs by an incredible 25% all while replacing expensive wooden packaging.
Each of these awards is a testament to DS Smith’s determination to get the most from innovation and create value for our customers by helping them lower costs, increase sales and manage risks.
The award ceremony will take place in May 2017 during the interpack trade fair in Dusseldorf, Germany.
