Bala Cynwyd, Pa. (November 7, 2018) —PaperWorks Industries, a leading, integrated North American full-service provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications, has won four prestigious 2018 Paperboard Packaging Council carton competition awards.
The company was awarded the prestigious Gold Award in the general category for its KFC Canada triple “Grab N’ Go” carrier. The same carton was given an Excellence Award in the Innovations category. PaperWorks was also given Excellence Awards in the Eco and General categories for its Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Club Store Pack.
PaperWorks’ PacDev Design + Innovation team was tasked with designing a fast food carrier for KFC Canada that could transport three, 54-ounce buckets. The objective was to design a structure that met the performance, assembly-at-retail and aesthetic requirements. The solution was an innovative, proprietary paperboard structure which uses carrier’s base, plus two additional “platforms,” to create placement positions for each of the three 54-ounce buckets.
The end result was a stackable, supported carrier that holds the three buckets in position, promotes the brand, enables venting, assembles quickly and offers an easy way for consumers to transport the food home. Further, the innovative carrier gives KFC Canada an exceptional way to billboard the brand while the food is being transported.
For Proctor & Gamble’s Magic Eraser clubstore pack, PaperWorks produced an innovative folding carton solution. The front of one carton was mated with the back of a second to create a 360 degree billboard. This means that whether you are standing in front of the clubstore pallet, or are looking at its back through the aisle behind it, or from either side, you are seeing exactly the same thing. The front of the package also features a die-cut window that displays the product. Usage instructions are on the side panel. The overlapping configuration also facilities tight pallet cubing which helps meet transport objectives.
The new folding carton solution eliminates several packaging components (thermoformed tub, lid, labels and corrugated trays) used previously and helps reduce carbon footprint. The use of multilevel sculpted embossing on the product image, along with embossing of the product name, enhance the carton. Further, a UV spot gloss coating was added to the embossed areas to add shimmer and shine.
