Graphic Packaging Wins Five Awards At Worldstar Global Packaging 2022 Atlanta, Georgia based Graphic Packaging Internation- al is celebrating its accomplishments after winning five awards at the WorldStar Global Packaging Awards 2022. The awards, among the most prestigious in the packaging industry, celebrate the best and brightest innovations from around the world with entries judged by a panel of 36 in- ternationally esteemed judges.

The design provides high impact branding, great produce visibility and enhanced protection with a comfortable carrying handle for user comfort. • Boardio (with Club Coffee, Loblaws) recyclable pa- per-based can for coffee that is delivered flat to point- of-filling. Containing more than 80 percent fiber from sustainably managed forests, Boardio can replace tin cans, plastic tubs, glass jars and plastic stand-up pouches. • Boardio (with Perfetti Van Melle, Mentos Pure Fresh Gum) recyclable paperboard bottle for confectionery. The easy-to-use Boardio technology provides an 86 percent lower carbon footprint than traditional plastic alternatives and is easily recycled in established paper waste streams. • Estrella Damm rounded corner beverage pack, engi- neered for sustainability, scalability and recyclability. The design eliminates the need for plastic shrink wrap while delivering impactful on-shelf appeal. • PaperSeal high performance barrier-lined paperboard alternative to MAP, VSP and top-seal plastic trays for the food industry.
