The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is pleased to advise that two Australian Companies, Sealed Air and Woolcool Australia have been shortlisted as finalists for the Save Food Packaging Award which is a Special Award Category for the 2018 WorldStar Packaging Awards. Sealed Air have been recognised for their Fresh Technologies Ltd and Sealed Air Cryovac® Freshness Plus® design which was developed for a New Zealand company. Woolcool are now one of the most recognised award winners globally with three category wins and also this short-listing for the special award category. Both Sealed Air and Woolcool Australia were winners in the 2017 PIDA Awards which are the ANZ packaging awards that exclusively feed into the WorldStar Packaging Awards each year. As there are only four finalists globally for this special award category this is a significant achievement for the Australia and New Zealand packaging industries and for the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) who have led the Save Food Packaging Award program for industry.
