Mondi has won six competency awards in the Turkish Crescents and Stars for Packaging 2020 competition, organized by the Turkish Packaging Manufacturer’s Association.
The company’s approach to sustainable and effective packaging options was recognized in four different categories: industrial and transportation, flexible packaging, food, and point of sale, presentation, and storage products.
Almost 280 different packaging products were assessed across the 13 award categories in the ninth Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition. Mondi products from both corrugated and flexible packaging were recognized.
Sevinç Yener Çimecioğlu, CEO of Mondi Tire Kutsan, said: ‘The standard of entries was very high, so we are delighted to receive these awards. The Crescents and Stars for Packaging competition credits the way we combine creativity and technology to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals, finding ideal, unique packaging solutions for their goods. We are contributing to a better world by making innovative solutions using paper where possible, plastic when useful.’
Umit Sahin, managing director of Mondi Kalenobel, added, ‘It is fantastic to be recognized for the sustainable packaging we created in collaboration with our customers Orkla and Unilever. This is testament to the hard work of our teams and the strong relationships we enjoy with our global clients. Our aim is always to work closely with our valued partners through our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions, to create sustainable packaging that works for the products, consumers and the environment.’
Due to the pandemic, the winners will be presented with gold, silver and bronze trophies at a later date, once large-scale gatherings are permitted.
