Interpack 2014, touted as the world's most important trade fair for the packaging sector and related processing industries, is currently taking place in the Messe Dusseldorf, Germany. Amongst all else going on at the show, the 10 finalists of the biannual packaging innovation contest 'De Gouden Noot 2014' was announced at the booth of the NVC, the Netherlands Packaging Centre. De Gouden Noot is arguably the world's most competitive packaging innovation contest. The award brings a wealth of international publicity and acknowledges the outstanding packaging achievement of the winners.
The name of this competition translates from the Dutch as 'The Golden Nut.' It is therefore more than fitting that the first-place winner is presented with a solid gold walnut. A silver nut is awarded to the second-place finisher, while the bronze nut goes to the contestant placing third.
