The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is pleased to advise that the Institute has developed a series of Best Practice Award-winning examples of innovative sustainable packaging design from across Australia and New Zealand.

All of the case studies have been recognised in the annual Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards and over 95% have gone on to receive global recognition for their innovative Sustainable Packaging Designs through the WorldStar Packaging Awards.

Some of the ANZ winners have also received WorldStar Sustainable Packaging Special Awards, which is the most prestigious award in the world.
