Hippo Premium Packaging, the customized packaging solutions provider for the legal cannabis industry, has announced that along with Duallok, it is a finalist in the 2019 PAC Global Leadership Awards.
This prestigious world-wide event identifies and awards the best in packaging innovation, design, and branding.
The Hippo/Duallok package is one of only six finalists in the “Packaging Innovation/Technical Innovation” category.
The company developed the package for its client, Theory Wellness, using the new Duallok certified child resistant enclosure. Burgopak is the inventor and structural designer of the patented system and Hippo is a premier distributor of the Duallok line.
The unique double-lock design, certified under the 16 CFR 1700 guidelines for child resistance, keeps children safe and brands compliant.
Hippo’s innovative customization and creative use of the Duallok container was recognized by the Packaging Consortium (PAC) as one of the best packaging designs in the world.
Kary Radestock, Co-Founder and CEO of Hippo Premium Packaging, said she is thrilled to be named a finalist in the very competitive global packaging competition.
Radestock said: “We started Hippo with one goal in mind: To give our clients the very best packaging and branding solutions in the world. As most companies know, packaging is perhaps the single most important tool to generate sales and grow a brand.
“The PAC Awards recognize the importance that a company like ours can have in shaping a client’s success.”
Other nominated companies include, Proctor & Gamble, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, ConAgra, Unilever, Pfizer, Georgia-Pacific, Pizza Hut, Heineken, and Starbucks.
Radestock added: “When I look at the other nominees, I am struck that we are competing against some of the biggest companies in the world, If there was ever a ‘David and Goliath’ in the packaging industry, this is it!”
The 2019 PAC Global Leadership Awards winners will be announced at the ONEOF100 Summit in New York, in February.
