MADISON, WI – Placon was recently announced as the winner of three (3) WorldStar awards. The WorldStar awards are an annual award given by the World Packaging Organization and are the pre-eminent international award in packaging. WorldStar illustrates the continuous advancement of packaging design and technology to create a standard of packaging excellence. The award winning Placon package designs were in the Household (PACLOCK Bi-Fold Clamshell), Medical & Pharmaceutical (ORTHOFIX® Medical Tray) and Food (HomeFresh® Entrée) categories.
Each package design brings a unique set of features that set them apart from current designs. The PACLOCK Bi-Fold Clamshell, winning design in the Household category, allows PACLOCK to have 100% more space to hold graphic and product information within the package. More product information allows the end customer to read and learn about the product prior to purchase, which will increase point of sale by having more information at the customer fingertips.
The ORTHOFIX® Medical Tray, design winner in the Medical and Pharmaceutical award category, is a superb design that has features to suspend a set of medical device screws with HA coating that prevents abrasion or rubbing off the critical coating that needs to be on each screw for proper medical operating room usage. The high level of difficulty and precision make this package truly one-of-a-kind that meets a solution for the customer as a result.
The Food category winning design was HomeFresh® Entrée by Placon. Designed to stack neatly, to avoid tipping over and causing a mess for the end user. It also features a leak resistant lid, vented or non-vented lid options and is microwavable. Simply microwave, wash and reuse.
