World Aluminium Aerosol Can Awards
AEROBAL has announced the winners of the World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award 2014: Innovative ideas for print and design and the environment. The judging panel was made up of journalists from can magazines from around the world.
A can produced by German manufacturer Tubex for Dove deodorant won the award for best can already on the market. The can was recognised for its characteristic shaping, fine decoration and the fact that the 125ml compressed variant of a 250ml can is eco-friendly and sustainable.
The first prize in the prototypes category went to Ball Aerocan Europe of France. Using an innovative printing process the company is now offering the possibility to combine glossy and matt finishes on a single can.
Gregor Spengler, secretary general of the International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers (AEROBAL) says “Year after year this competition demonstrates the unremitting innovative capability of our globally active member companies and the benefits the aluminium aerosol can offers as an attractive, user-friendly and sustainable packaging solution. New print and design options, elegant shaping and not least the responsible use of resources have documented this yet again this year.”
