Awards.

Snel winner Innovation Award!

On October 7th the 2020 Carton E-vent took place. During this livesream event the winners of this years European Carton Excellence Award were announced. In total 25 entries were shortlisted.

Snel was the winner of the Innovation Award, with the entry of a tray for strawberries, berries and raspberries. A special feature of the tray is the flexible construction of the bottom, due to a special (patented) die cut profile. The cardboard tray replaces many thousands of plastic trays with pads.

It is Snel’s third participation in Europe’s most prestigious competition for cartonboard packaging, as well as the third time the jury recognizes the required craftmanship and innovation of the entry by awarding a prize.

Recognition goes out to the partners in this project, such as Smurfit Kappa, Anderling, Fonkels and Van Herk. 

Snel winner of the ‘European Carton Excellence

For the second time in three years, Snel has succeeded in winning the prestigious ‘European Carton Excellence Award‘. This year, the outstanding designs and functional solutions were honoured in Riga (Latvia). The Pop Up Cup from brand owner Fonkels was rated best in the category Fast/Convenience Foods.

The jury’s comments: “This was considered to be so, so clever. A perfect way for cartonboard to present a soft drink and to solve the multi-layer over-packaging of current drinks’ containers. Externally, the look and feel tells you that this is something new and ecological. The key-point is the film and carton can be easily separated for recycling.”

Nothing but positive comments from the jury for this innovative concept, which is completely in line with the pursuit for more sustainable packagings.

Snel winner of the Pro-Carton ECMA Award 2016!

A truly remarkable performance, also because of the record number of entries for this competition. This year, the Pro Carton ECMA Award celebrates its 20th anniversary. During this period, the much acclaimed competition has become the most prestigious European prize for carton packaging.

Wout Verbruggen, managing director of Snel, accepted the award and received the congratulations from Mr. Roland Rex, president of Pro Carton.
