Huhtamaki gains recognitions at industry awards: setting the tone for another year

Sustainability and innovation are at the heart of our packaging solutions, and our success in recent packaging awards is a testament to our commitment. Thrilled to have secured three trophies at the SIES SOP STAR Awards at the end of 2023, we are excited to announce winning a WorldStar Award 2024, setting the tone for another winning year.  

Here is a look back at the SIES SOP STAR 2023 Awards, where we won over the jury in three different categories: Food, Health & Personal Care Products and Pet Food.  

Our Freeze-Able Pouches for Baked Products impressed the jury in the Food category with its technical excellence and resistance to freezing conditions. With a special PE sealant that ensures that the product remains fresh and puncture-resistant. In addition to the functional benefits, the pouch features special matt lacquer adding a premium soft-touch that attracts consumers' attention in the highly competitive refrigerated section. 

In the Health & Personal Care category, our Shaped Pouch with Premium Aesthetics for Henna Hair Color stood out by bringing the Henna aesthetic perfectly to the pouch. Golden matt Henna decors, and subtle green elements emphasize the natural Henna ingredient. Combined with a variety of convenience features and optimal product protection it provides excellent retail prominence for the product. 

The Premium Five-Panel Pouch for Pet Food won over the jury in the Pet Food category with its excellent print graphics, improved functionality, and sophisticated appeal, making the most of the extended area for branding of a five-panel pouch. 

We are humbled by the recognition we have received at the SIES SOP Awards 2023 and we are proud to have kept the momentum going with a win at the 2024 WorldStar Awards for our Transparent Barrier Snack Packaging. 

Huhtamaki WorldStar Winner_2.jpg   With this material, we are addressing a particular point-of-sale opportunity: Who can resist when having their favorite snacks clearly visible right in front of them? We could not, and shoppers will find it just as difficult.

The PE solution provides enhanced barrier performance compared to existing transparent barrier alternatives, given equal film thicknesses. Offering MVTR and OTR less than 1 in tropical conditions. Keeping the food fresh on the shelf and making your snacks irresistible!  

We are determined to continue pushing the boundaries and creating packaging that stands out on the shelf. As we look forward to what is yet to come, we remain committed to our ambition to be the first choice in sustainable packaging solutions, driven by innovation and operational performance.
