Constantia Flexibles winner of German Packaging Award 2016

Constantia Flexibles proudly announces that it is once again one of the winners of the prestigious annual German Packaging Award. The company’s Christmas Bow Label Coca-Cola packaging innovation won in the category Designing & Processing for 2016. The award will be officially handed over to the winners on September 27 at the FachPack trade fair taking place in Nuremberg, Germany.

“Congratulations to our team that has brought a bold and exciting idea to life. We have proven our expertise in delivering challenging label projects”, said Mike Henry, Executive Vice President of the Labels Division. “I would like to above all mention Gerd Blecken (Research & Development), Luise Zoller (Quality Assurance) Holger Berkel (Head of Production), Wiebke Lauterbach (Customer Service), as well as Kai Sparbier and Caroline Burgess (Sales) at the company’s labels site in Germany, for their significant contribution to this project.”

The Christmas Bow label for Coca Cola is a special  gravure printed 2 ply reel fed clear metallized OPP labels, laminated with special glue, available with or without perforation,  and a pull strip to convert the wrap around label into a “bow”. This special label was realized with our partner Eshuis BV based in the Netherlands.

According to an independent jury the result is a very unusual and different label that is fun to use and to interact with. It is a technically intelligent solution that runs on high-speed lines and the consumer and the brand offer a playful seasonal value.
