1. The gold award winners of the 2021 Australasian Packaging Innovation and Design Awards

pouch for Brookfarm (O F Packaging) was created as a more sustainable alternative to its previous metallised multi-laminate structure – all the while, keeping its existing brand heritage and pack style. Despite being monopolymer and made entirely from PE, the pack still contains the functionality of the original, with use of a resealable zipper closure and tear notches. The main benefit of the redesign also revolves around its Recycle Ready feature and the elimination of complex laminate structure in lieu of the high-barrier recyclable alternative. Silver award: Chobani (PakPot) Bronze award: Oasis Spice Shaker (Oasis and Qdesign Enterprises) High commendation: MasterFoods Herbs and Spices (Mars Food Australia and Cormack Packaging) High commendation: Nature’s Way SlimRight (Zipform Packaging)
