Dow announced the winners of the 2021 Packaging Innovation Awards in a virtual unveiling ceremony on 31 March.


For over three decades, the Packaging Innovation Awards have recognized outstanding packaging projects from around the globe, showcasing the most innovative breakthroughs based on the criteria of sustainability, technological developments, and enhanced user experience.


This edition’s highest recognition, the Diamond Award, went to O F Packaging and its Brookfarm curbside recyclable, high-barrier stand-up pouch, which demonstrated excellence in all three judging criteria.


O F Packaging were given a challenge by their client Brookfarm to create a high barrier packaging structure to protect their muesli and granola products that can also be recycled through curbside recycling. The innovative Roll ‘n’ Recycle packaging was created in close collaboration with their partners PREP Design and Results Group.



O F Packaging’s curbside recyclable stand-up pouch wins Diamond honors in the 2021 Packaging Innovation Awards by Dow.

A group of independent judges from 7 countries and representing more than 300 years of combined industry experience, evaluated 189 submissions from companies all over the world, and packaging projects ranging from food and beverage applications to homecare, and even electronic goods.


In addition to the Diamond Award winner, 35 other inspiring projects were recognized: nine Diamond finalist winners, 13 Gold awards and 13 Silver recipients.


“Dow and the packaging industry have very ambitious goals to stop the waste, close the loop and protect the climate. Looking at the submissions for the awards this year, we are absolutely heading in the right direction,” said Diego Donoso, president, Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics. “My appreciation to all participants and the organizing team for an engaging and energizing award event.”
