The competition, which recognises and rewards international packaging design innovation is organised by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) and is recognised as one of the important packaging awards competition, with WorldStars presented to packs that have already won acknowledgement in national or regional competitions.

In selecting winners, representatives from 19 packaging associations and members of the WPO, judged 293 packaging projects from 35 countries that entered the WorldStar Awards 2016. The judging sessions took place on October 8-10, 2016 during WPOís Board Meeting program, held in Mumbai, India. A WorldStar Awards presentation ceremony and dinner will be held in Budapest, Hungary, on May 26, 2016.

Plastipak’s WorldStars were awarded for five developments. For example the ThermaLite Range of Jars: PET jars that are designed to replace glass jars. ThermaLite is for food applications and can be hot-filled and pasteurised. It offers significant weight and carbon footprint savings.

Kinza Sutton, Marketing Manager of Plastipak Packaging Europe, said: "It has been a remarkable 2015 and what better way to close the year off than by winning five WorldStar Awards! We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have achieved such accolades during the second half of the year. Gaining international recognition at this level is indicative of Plastipakís determination to constantly innovate and create solutions for our customers."
