Graphic Packaging International (“Graphic Packaging”), leader in paper-based packaging solutions, has been awarded Best New Concept at the UK Packaging Awards 2020 for its KeelClip™ beverage clip solution.
“We’re immensely proud of our team and the work we’ve carried out with our partners to bring this innovative pack to market. Innovation and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. To lead the field in the Best New Concept category is testament to the hard work and vision of everyone involved,” said Tom Garsed, marketing, design and innovation director at Graphic Packaging.

“We continue to be committed to innovation at the highest level to meet today’s supply chain needs. From brand to consumer, every Graphic Packaging solution is rigorously engineered for optimum performance and sustainability,” continues Garsed. “We’re delighted that our continued drive towards more innovative, sustainable packaging solutions has been rewarded by this respected programme.”
