Trivium Packaging,a global leader in sustainable and infinitely recyclable packaging, has been awarded globally recognized sustainability distinctions from Hallbars, a silver from Pentawards, and won yet another major international award for its work with iconic Argentinian edible oil brand, Cocinero. These three awards recognize innovation within the packaging industry and highlight continued progress made towards environmental sustainability.
Trivium’s 2021 Sustainability Report was awarded Best in World at the Hallbars Food & Drink Sustainability Awards within the categories of E05 Packaging, and G02 Well-Being and Innovation. Hallbars recognizes companies from 51 countries for their sustainability reports, as they showcase organizations at the cutting-edge of waste reduction and environmental sustainability.
Just months after taking home a top honor from the 2020 International Metal Decorating and Packaging Association (IMDPA) Awards, Cocinero's Fritolim Oliva + Clasico aerosol can produced by Trivium won the "World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award 2021" competition held by the International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers (AEROBAL) in the category "Can already on the market". The category is one of the most competitive, with the 26 AEROBAL members accounting for approximately 73% of the production worldwide.
Santiago Perez Hernando, Commercial Director, Trivium Packaging, Argentina said:
"We are proud to partner with Molinos Rio de la Plata in the development of this can. There is an abundance of passion, expertise, and pride behind this can. Our team is driven by exceeding our customers’ expectations and bringing their brand to life on store shelves, in a sustainable and attractive package that connects with the consumer whether they are brand loyalists or trying the product for the first time. It is with gratitude that we accept this award."
To achieve this prominent accolade, the brand's owners, Molinos Rio de la Plata, alongside Trivium Argentina, worked to ensure the design showcased the brand's iconic hallmark--a distinguished-looking man in his apron and chef hat, smiling back at the user--while embracing the new packaging for its three varieties: Clasico, Oliva, and Butter.
The shape of the cans presented a real challenge and was “mastered excellently” according to the judging panel. In the graphic pre-production phase, the distinctive face had to be created precisely in such a way that it would appear perfectly and correctly proportioned despite the deformation of the can during the manufacturing process, a challenge that required attention to detail and precision. Trivium’s team of experts was able to use techniques in pre production graphics, so when applied in production, the graphics printed crisp, clean, and proportional despite the shape of the aerosol can.
Beyond preserving the hallmark imagery, a key factor in taking home the top honor was the use of sustainable materials contributing to better products for the Argentina market. Cocinero oils’ packaging is produced using 100% infinitely recyclable aluminum with recycled content. This material reflects the company's mission to provide more valuable, healthy, and accessible products to health-minded consumers.
Additionally, Trivium was awarded the Silver Pentaward, recognizing excellence in packaging design, for its TITUS project. This project was carried out in partnership with the iconic TITUS sardine products in Morocco, as the company made the transition from steel to aluminum packaging. Together, Trivium created three unique, color-coded designs to differentiate TITUS’ products, while maintaining the eco conscious environmental footprint that lays at the heart of Trivium’s mission.
Jenny Wassenaar, VP Sustainability, Trivium says:
