Creating a Monster at Euro CanTech

The Supreme Award was particularly close this year, but the overall consensus from our judges was that Ardagh’s Espresso Monster Coffee Can was the most deserving winner. Due to its Matte and Mirror Impact developed by INX, the judges decided that its structured surface created a unique feel.

“The Euro CanTech Awards celebrate excellence in the can making industry across Europe,” comments Conference Director, Neil McRitchie. “Each category was judged by a panel of industry experts who assessed each can based on its own individual merits. It was decided by our judges that the Espresso Monster Coffee Can was the worth winner due to the impressive feel the product provided.

Euro CanTech was the best edition of the show yet, with over 200 can makers, suppliers and industry delegates in attendance, coming together to network and celebrate the achievements of innovation, design and excellence within the can making industry in Europe.
