DuPont Packaging Awards looks back at 25 years of packaging innovation


DuPont is asking for your vote. In light of the 25th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, DuPont is asking the industry to vote on the past packaging breakthroughs that embody how packaging has changed our lives.

From hundreds of past winners, DuPont identified six breakthrough groups that range from aseptic packaging that has enabled our current "on-the-go" lifestyle to centralized processing and packaging of meat that reduced waste and kept meat fresh longer.

"From year to year, this program has honored tremendous achievements," Shanna Moore, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers global director of sustainability and leader of the DuPont Packaging Awards program, said in the news release. "When you have the luxury of viewing all 25 years, you can truly appreciate the impact that packaging has had on our lives."

DuPont will tally the online voting and announce the "breakthrough" award during the May 16 celebration of the 25th DuPont Awards winners in Wilmington, DE. The winner also will be posted at the voting site.
