Pact Wins both Sustainable Design and Beverage Categories in Australasia’s Peak Packaging Awards

1 May 2019

New Zealand’s Lewis Road Dairy’s post-consumer sourced 100% recycled plastic polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) milk bottle range won both the Sustainable Packaging Design and Beverage Awards. An Australasian first in its category, Lewis Road’s rPET bottle range equates to approximately 340 tonnes of plastic that has been reused and diverted from landfill and, contributes to forging a circular economy by including more recycled content into packaging.

Raphael Geminder, Chairman of Pact Group said “Sustainability lies at the heart of Pact Group’s vision. Winning the 2019 Sustainable Packaging Design category cements the aspirational targets we developed as part of our 2025 End of Waste Promise—to lead the industry toward a circular economy and be the number one partner of sustainable choices for our customers.”

Pact Group also won a Silver award in the Health, Beauty and Wellness category for Essano’s post-consumer sourced 100% recycled plastic polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) shampoo and conditioner bottle range. Moving from virgin HDPE to rPET equates to saving approximately 56 tonnes of plastic that has been reused and diverted from landfill.

The Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design Awards (PIDA) recognise companies and individuals making a significant difference in their field across Australia and New Zealand. The PIDAs, which are are coordinated by the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and Packaging New Zealand, are the exclusive feeder program for the prestigious WorldStar Packaging Awards.
