CanPack India were the recipients of the Supreme Cup at the inaugural can making trade show in India. The event, which is taking place in Novotel Aerocity Hotel in New Delhi from 17-19 February, has attracted global suppliers to India, to explore the potential growth of metal packaging within the territory.
The Grand Tour judging panel decided that, CanPack India’s can in question, dedicated to the ‘Share a Coke’ campaign, was a worthy winner.
This can in question was launched by Coca-Cola with its Share a Coke campaign, and the replacement of the logo with relationships such as Mon, Dad, Mentor etc.
