Less is (much) more

Intelligent concepts are also in high demand in the field of healthcare and can deliver major advantages for both consumers and manufacturers. This new design of the interior has been developed for an existing outer carton pack, which now can be glued and set-up using a semi-automated packing line. This new set replaces the completely manual set-up of the old design and eliminates the need for a dedicated transport pack. The printed colours on the back of the interior are intended to assist in filling the cartons correctly with the vials having corresponding cap colours.
The new design substantially reduces the packaging costs and the reduced amount of material used has a significant positive environmental effect. The interior keeps the vials perfectly intact and ready for use. Also, the new design requires far less space than the old design again saving costs.

Jury comments

Considerable reduction in packaging is what makes this pack the winner in this section. The new design does away with hand packing plus a dedicated transportation pack is now not needed. Yet the valuable vials are still well contained and protected.

Cartonboard instead of metal
The cartonboard pack is a sustainable replacement for the brand’s original tin design. The carton is delivered flat packed, thus reducing pallet requirements and enabling Fox’s Biscuits to minimise logistics and inventory which in turn reduces their carbon footprint. The premium carton design features a double wall lid, providing a print area when opening the pack. Added value features are ease of opening and a tear away part of the pack doubling as an effective marketing space (linking to a consumer competition).

Splendid and sustainable
The carton was designed to be a replica of a metal box. The main objective was to maintain the look (design-wise and layout-wise) when switching to a more sustainable packaging. The metal effect was replicated by using a metallised substrate onto which a combination of effect gloss and matt varnish was applied. As a result, the new packaging has become more attractive on the shelf, and much more sustainable and functional than the previous version.

Fresh enjoyment
A one-piece, pre-erected dual compartment box for food service, where the content is separated into two compartments to prevent the chips being soaked with sauce from the curry sausage. The compartment for the curry sausage has no holes and therefore the sauce is kept inside, whereas the chips compartment has several holes to keep the chips crunchy and to allow water vapour to escape. Closed, it is safe for carrying. The packaging can be produced on a standard high-speed erecting line (with some modifications) and has not been seen in this segment before.
