Pact Group selected as a finalist in the 2014 World Dairy Innovation Awards

World dairy innovation logoPact Group has been selected as a finalist in the Best Packaging Innovation Category in the 2014 World Dairy Innovation Awards for developing Fonterra’s revolutionary Light Proof™ Milk bottle range.

The Light Proof™ bottle preserves the nutritional value and fresh taste of milk and cream through a unique design that incorporates triple layer technology. With opaque inside and outside layers, the middle layer is the game changer; coloured black, it blocks out 100% of light. Also key to the design was ensuring the HDPE bottle preserved the nutritional value and taste of its contents while still remaining light weight and recyclable.

The World Dairy Innovation Awards were announced at a gala dinner during the 8th Global Dairy Congress in Istanbul, Turkey. The judging panel considered almost 160 entries from 30 countries in 17 categories.

FoodBev Media’s awards have been running for more than 10 years and recognised as the most important awards to influence the international food and beverage industry. “Innovation continues to be the key driver in the dairy industry,” said FoodBev Media’s Bill Bruce, “and that was evident in the wide range of new products and packaging ideas, use of new ingredients, great new marketing campaigns, brand extensions and a huge variety of nutrition an environmental projects that interact with consumers and the wider community.

Since 2007, FoodBev Media has organised the World Dairy Innovation Awards designed to celebrate excellence and innovation across every category of the global dairy industry. The awards categories range from products including Best cheese and Best yoghurt, to Best dairy drink and Best functional dairy product; plus categories for brands; ingredients; packaging; design; manufacturing and processing; sustainability; and marketing and communications.
