K+D wins European Carton Excellence Award 2019


All good things come in threes: two times finalists – now winner!

On the occasion of the third final nomination after 2015 and 2017, K+D won the European Carton Excellence Award in the category 'General Packaging'. On the occasion of this year's ECMA (European Carton Makers Association) Congress in Malta, the most recognized European carton packaging award was presented.

The jury praised the packaging, which looks like a tooth from above, as follows:

This is a fascinating hexagonal pack for dental products that holds each of the different elements for dental treatment securely internally, while the individual panels of the carton lock into each other to form a strong, distinctive and robust pack.

The contents of the package are applicators for the regenerative treatment of initial tooth defects. The packaging is designed that the instruments are innovatively packaged and easy to remove. The hexagonal construction gives this package a striking shape and reminds one of a tooth when viewed from above. The cardboard sleeves have been chosen for ease of handling and are printed on the inside, eliminating the need for additional leaflets.

K+D and its customer Credentis are delighted to receive the most coveted European packaging award for solid board products. This is also recognition of persistent development according to customer specifications and of course according to packaging functionalities such as convenience, sustainability, marketing, information and protection. Receiving the award spurs us on to new levels of excellence.
