This year marked the 79th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition for carton manufacturers involved in the concept, design, print, performance, and shelf appeal of paperboard packaging. Each and every year the best paperboard package designs from across North America are submitted and judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, and professors and Great Northern Packaging is pleased to announce it received two Excellence Awards!
The first Excellence Award was given to the Good Culture 12 Count Cottage Cheese carton. Good Culture was launched in 2014 as a “real healing foods” company that is focused on high-quality cultured dairy products, and they wanted their packaging to reflect that. The sustainable, eye-catching carton was engineered to not only withstand the rigors of shipping and distribution but also create a billboard effect and attract shoppers when displayed on a pallet. For efficient hand fulfillment, the carton was re-designed into a TTAB and custom scoring profiles for the thicker substrate ensure that the carton erects easily and squarely.
The second Excellence Award was given to the New Trail Brewing Co. Double Broken Heels 15 Ct IPA carton. New Trail Brewing Co. was started with the purpose of creating great beer for everyone to enjoy when they dare to explore new places, do new things, and take new trails. Their carton was constructed using a laminated paperboard that provides a high-quality print surface for the graphics to look sharp and clean. This also provides maximum structural integrity to support the weight of the product and endure the pallet load supply chain requirements. Finally, a reinforced handle was designed to hold the weight of the product and provide an easy way for the shopper to carry it.
