34 winners

Four Gold Awards

The industry celebrates


At the industry celebration on the first day of FachPack, the German Packaging Institute (dvi) honoured the winners of the German Packaging Award 2019.

In addition, four award winners were elevated to win the jury’s exclusive Gold Award: a “Design to second use” solution, a universal packaging made of post-consumer material, recycling material with an innovative barrier solution as well as a unique foil bag made of untreated paper.

We congratulate ALB-GOLD Teigwaren, Smurfit Kappa Herzberg Solid Board, Pöppelmann and three students from the Stuttgart Media University for truly outstanding innovative work!

All 34 award-winning innovations in 2019, the four winners of the Gold Award and impressions of the award ceremony are there for all to see on the German Packaging Award website.




More than just sustainability

“Sustainability and new materials with their various facets were even more to the fore than last year.

All aspects of sustainability were covered; material reduction, improved recyclability, higher recyclate content and renewable materials.

However, it has also become clear that packaging cannot be reduced to sustainability and nothing else. Packaging primarily ensures the protection and shelf life of products and prevents consequential losses that would pose a serious economic and ecological problem.”

Bettina Horenburg, dvi board member and overall responsible person for the German Packaging Award



Identifying opportunities

The development towards consistent recyclability of packaging also opens up new opportunities for our economy. The market for sustainable packaging is one of the strongest growth sectors. Highly innovative SMEs in particular can use sustainable and innovative solutions to secure their leading position on the world market and in doing so create jobs and prosperity.

With this in mind, I am delighted that the German Packaging Award has developed into an innovation driver that makes it crystal clear that our industry is facing the challenges head on and recognising the opportunities for innovative, sustainable packaging.

Peter Altmaier, German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy
