World’s Most Incredible Plastic Packaging

Gallery-World’s Most Incredible Plastic Packaging

Winning plastic packaging in the WorldStar 2023 awards range from a blister film made from biomass to copper-embedded films to a plastic pump sprayer engineered for circularity.

The annual WorldStar packaging awards managed by the World Packaging Organisation provide the ultimate snapshot of global packaging innovation. What makes the WPO awards program unique is that winners must first be recognized by their respective national packaging associations in that country.

The WPO then takes the vetting process to the next level.

The 2023 WorldStar winners were celebrated in a May 6 ceremony at Messe Düsseldorf during the interpack tradeshow where 140 company representatives from a total of 228 winners were present to receive their trophies. The winners were from a record-busting 488 entries from 41 countries.

“These numbers confirm that WorldStar is the most prestigious and important packaging award on the globe, and interpack was the perfect place to award these incredible packages,” said Soha Atallah, WorldStar Coordinator and WPO Vice President of Events.

PlasticsToday presents a diverse curated selection of plastic packaging from among the winners from to blister films made from biomass to copper-embedded films to increase shelf life to a plastic pump sprayer engineered for circularity (all shown above L-to-R) to 100% rPET bottles.

If one theme stands out, it’s the top influencer throughout packaging and beyond: sustainability.

Our slideshow gallery of nine packaging innovations starts with a breakthrough recycled PET bottle made using 30% PET sourced from advanced recycling technology.
