The Food & Beverage Innovation Forum (FBIF) recently announced the winners of the “Marking Awards” in China. Out of the over 500 different packaging designs from 200 different companies worldwide, three Aptar Food + Beverage solutions, BAP®, Flip Lid and Contender, received awards for the category In-Market Functional Design.
A jury of 24 selected professionals from top international brands and design institutes selected the best solutions, based on the following criteria: Commerciality, Communication, Functionality, Originality, Foresight, and Design.
BAP® or Bonded Aluminum to Plastic, is an all-in-one foil-to-closure solution that provides many unique advantages to both marketers and consumers. It features an easy-to-open pull ring, and superior sealing performance, helping to deliver an enjoyable experience to consumers, and drive repeat purchase. Its innovative and versatile technology helps brands to stand out from competition and excite consumers.
FLIP LID is a uniquely simple, consumer friendly dispensing closure designed to promote post use recycling. Flip Lid remains united with the bottle through its lifecycle, making the closure more likely to be collected and sent through the recycling stream with the container. Consumers will also benefit from the patented, wide-opening hinged lid, and the audible “click” when reclosing.
Contender is a liner-less, flip-top sport cap designed for the hot fill bottling process. The closure’s innovative bi-injected sealing system delivers product protection, without the added foil liner.
This unique closure also features built-in tamper evidence, and provides increased shelf appeal for brand owners.
