Vote for your favorite DuPont packaging innovation

In honor of the 25th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, DuPont Co., Wilmington, Del., is asking the industry to vote on the past packaging breakthroughs that most impacted people’s lives. From hundreds of past winners, DuPont has identified six breakthrough groups that range from aseptic packaging that has enabled our current “on-the-go” lifestyle to centralized processing and packaging of meat, which reduces waste and keeps meat fresh longer.

“From year to year, this program has honored tremendous achievements,” says Shanna Moore, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers global director of sustainability and leader of the DuPont Packaging Awards program. ”When you have the luxury of viewing all 25 years, you can truly appreciate the impact that packaging has had on our lives.”

DuPont will tally the online voting and announce the breakthrough voted to have most transformed our lives during the May 16 celebration of the 25th DuPont Awards winners in Wilmington. The winner also will be posted at the voting site.

The DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation are the industry’s longest-running, global, independently judged celebration of innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain. Sponsored by DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers, the company manufactures an extensive mix of adhesive, barrier, peelable lidding and sealant resins and provides a globally networked development team to work with customers on packaging programs that help protect the product, environment, improve shelf appeal, convenience and reduce cost in the food, cosmetics, medical products and other consumer goods and industrial packaging industries.

DuPont has also broadened its sustainability commitments beyond internal footprint reduction to include market-driven targets for both revenue and research and development investment. The goals are tied directly to business growth, specifically to the development of safer and environmentally improved new products for key global markets.
