Almost 280 different packaging products were assessed across the 13 award categories in the ninth Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition. The award wins demonstrate Mondi’s cross-market approach to packaging, spanning a range of industries and serving very diverse business and consumer audiences.

Sevinç Yener Çimecioğlu, CEO Mondi Tire Kutsan said: “The standard of entries was very high, so we are delighted to receive these awards. The Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition credits the way we combine creativity and technology to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, finding ideal, unique packaging solutions for their goods. We are contributing to a better world by making innovative solutions using paper where possible, plastic when useful.”

Umit Sahin, Managing Director, Mondi Kalenobel added: “It is fantastic to be recognised for the sustainable packaging we created in collaboration with our customers Orkla and Unilever. This is testament to the hard work of our teams and the strong relationships we enjoy with our global clients. Our aim is always to work closely with our valued partners through our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions, to create sustainable packaging that works for the products, consumers and the environment.”

The winners of the Crescents and Stars for Packaging Competition 2020 will be presented with Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies at a later date, once large scale gatherings are permitted due to the pandemic.
