Winfried Muehling

THE 26th European Carton Excellence Awards is now open for entries.

The Awards, hosted by Pro Carton and the European Carton Makers Association (ECMA), aim to showcase the most innovative packaging designs made from cartonboard.

The awards consist of four categories: General Packaging – Virgin Fibre, General Packaging – Recycled Fibre, Food & Drink Packaging – Virgin Fibre and Food & Drink Packaging – Recycled Fibre, as well as special awards for Innovation, Sustainability (previously known as the Save The Planet Award) and the Carton of the Year. The public will have the opportunity to vote for its favourite pack in the Public Award, while a number of Platinum and Gold Award winners will also be chosen.

Winfried Muehling, general manager of Pro Carton, said, “At Pro Carton, we are all about promoting the sustainability credentials and brilliance of cartonboard, and what better way to do that than with the European Carton Excellence Awards. Despite only joining Pro Carton in October last year, I have followed the awards closely for years and have been frequently blown away by the quality of submissions and the versatility of fibre-based packaging. I am extremely excited to see the creativity and functionality of the 2022 entries.”
