As gold sponsors of LibanPack’s student packaging competition, Unipak and MASTERPAK are encouraging development in the packaging industry.
The Lebanese Packaging Center (LibanPack) hosted its annual student packaging contest in UNESCO Palace, Beirut, Lebanon on 22 March 2011. Under the patronage of the Lebanese Minister of Industry, Abraham Dedeyan, Lebanon Student Star Pack 2011 encouraged creativity in the packaging industry by providing a forum for students to present new innovative packaging to industry professionals.
The event recognized the best student packaging designs under each of three categories: Visual (uplifting/creation of label designs), structural (innovative and functionally interesting packaging designs), and nougat and “Malban” packaging.
Winners received cash prizes ranging from $ 300 – $ 1000.Last year’s success resulted in a wider scope for this year’s contest with Jordan and Syria participating.
Unipak, corrugated manufacturer in Halat, Lebanon, exhibited creative point-of-purchase (POP) and promotional carton boxes during the annual student packaging contest.
In addition, Unipak produces high-graphics retail-ready packaging, shelf-ready packaging, counter stands and corrugated boxes.
Edgard Bou Kheir, INDEVCO Paper Containers Marketing Coordinator, states,
“Unipak is sponsoring this event as part of its continuous support for packaging improvement in Lebanon, as well as its commitment to people and community development through encouraging young talents and creating optimized packaging designs.”
At Lebanon Student Star Pack 2011, MASTERPAK demonstrated to students the sectors it serves: agricultural, beverage, catering, chemical & petrochemical, construction, hygiene, industrial, and processed food sectors.
