Winners of Packnorth Award 2022

There was great interest at the Superbrand stage at Scanpack when it was time to present the winners of the first edition of the Nordic packaging competition Packnorth Award.

The competition is organized by nord emballage in collaboration with Packnorth, which is produced by AGI Publishing House.

Eight winners were awarded with diplomas, flowers and champagne. Below you will find the winners and the jury’s motivations.

Category: Drinks

Liplid AB

Liplid was the winner in the Beverage Packaging category. The jury was very impressed by Liplid’s cup lid, which they say represents a lot of innovation:

The jury’s motivation: It is not often that we see so much innovation in such a basically simple product. Liplid has a great positioning potential in the segment. Here you replace plastic with fiber and get a lid that can be recycled or composted. The lid uses less material than the alternatives and also provides stability to the beverage cup, meaning that a cup can be made with less material. You can consume the contents without your mouth coming into contact with the lid. The design itself is interesting and signals sustainability.

Category: Food packaging

Trioworld Landskrona AB

Trioworld in Landskrona competed with Food Loop30, a five-layer laminate made from recycled plastic that was first introduced to the market in collaboration with the grocery chain Lidl in Sweden for their cinnamon and cardamom buns. The product won the Food Packaging category.

The jury’s motivation was: “Food packaging and recycled plastic have always been polar opposites. Here we see an interesting example that it is possible. Thirty percent PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) in such a challenging packaging for frozen goods is impressive and earned plus points from the jury. The solution is a five-layer laminate that meets all the mandatory tests and simulations of the EU Food Contact Materials Regulation. Being able to use more recycled plastics in food packaging is a necessary step towards circular plastic use and this film is a positive and interesting step in the right direction.

Category: Luxury packaging

Norrmejerier Ekonomisk Förening

The winner in the Luxury Packaging category was Norrmejerier Ekonomisk Förening for the packaging of the product Västerbottensost Jubileumsgåva.

The jury’s motivation: An elegant anniversary packaging for a mini version of the well-known cheese. The target group is international visitors. The packaging is classic and well-designed with clear references to premium via black, gold, lacquer, minimalist and simple and elegant styles. Like a well-kept secret, the story of the cheese emerges when you open the package. The cheese is wrapped in a plastic film that guarantees odorlessness. Two clean material streams that are easy to recycle.

Category: E-commerce packaging


Padded envelopes and bubble wrap from Raja won the e-commerce packaging category.

The jury awarded the win to Rajapack’s products with this explanation: Here are two products that competed separately in the category. The jury thought both were potential winners and decided to combine them into one entry. Two products that do the job with only one material, paper. Visually, they signal sustainability. The bubble design with reinforced bubbles in the bubble wrap ensures that a mono-material has a protective capacity that goes a long way in many cases. Of course, both products are 100% recyclable.

Category: Industrial packaging

Accon Greentech

In the Industrial Packaging category, Accon Greentech won, competing with Accon Big Bags.

The jury’s motivation: Much of the focus on circularity tends to be on consumer packaging. The concept is highly applicable and necessary for industrial packaging. Here is a well-thought-out solution for big bags handled in a closed loop. Innovation at its best, says the jury and continues: Full control over the quality of the monomaterial despite a significant proportion of recycled plastic and a smart system for quality assurance of the load capacity of the bags. By adjusting the proportion of recycled plastic, performance is reliably ensured. A brilliant idea that is also easy to communicate!

Category: Inclusive and/or sustainable design


Fibu won the Inclusive and/or Sustainable Design category for its filling material Starchips.

Jury statement: The material consists of foamed wood fiber and is the result of a long period of development. It acts as a shock absorber in packaging and replaces plastic chips. It can be compressed during transportation and then return to its shape, which saves transport space. The shock absorption capacity is high. This solution also avoids the problem of static electricity that is common with plastic chips. Material is also available as customized inserts or as wrapping material. It is 100% recyclable in paper recycling.

Category: Bio-based packaging

Pyroll Packaging Group Ltd

Pyroll Packaging Group competed with a package for reusable wooden cutlery – and won in the biomaterial-based packaging category.

The jury’s motivation was: “The packaging has a modern, environmentally friendly visual expression and allows the consumer to see the contents. It fits well with the USP of the product. Both the bag and window are made from sustainably grown forest raw material with a tall oil-based PP film laminated to a paper base. Tall oil is interesting as a raw material and this shows the possibilities. The packaging combines appearance, renewability and transparency in an appealing way.

Category: The Nordic Bioplastics Association Special Prize

Orkla Foods Sverige

The special prize was awarded by the Nordic Bioplastics Association. The winner was Orkla Foods Sweden’s bio-based plastic bottles for Felix dressings.

The jury’s motivation: “The brand owner Orkla’s new plastic bottles for Felix Dressings are made of bio-based polypropylene (PP). The bottles contain ninety percent bio-based PP and are ISCC certified. The jury appreciates Orkla’s commitment to the so-called mass balance principle as a path towards renewability and circularity. The bottles represent an opportunity to broaden the raw material base and the implementation of bio-thinking. They represent important parts of the transition. Through the prize, the Nordic Bioplastics Association wants to draw attention to this.”
