In the Bottles category, Trivium was honored Gold for LowKa packaging – a lightweight 473ml bottle. Developed by Trivium Brazil, and produced in Trivium, Argentina, LowKa is the first alcoholic Kombucha in Brazil to be in aluminum bottles. LowKa, by K-Häppy Indústria e Comércio de Bebidas LTDA, offers three different flavors (lemon ginger, coconut, and watermelon), low calories, low carbohydrates, is 100% natural, and contains 6% alcohol. The packaging, utilizing Trivium’s Ale House beverage bottle with a Crown Cap, is 100% infinitely recyclable and uses recycled content contributing to the cans’ lightweight nature. The artwork was specially developed and inspired by renowned artists to bring a smoothness to the packaging with a touch of modernity and differentiation. The dry offset printing process used seven different colors.

Trivium won Silver in category General Line for the Bravo Sierra sulfate-free body-wash in impact extruded aluminum threaded bottle, produced out of Trivium’s Youngstown, Ohio plant. The threaded bottle is the newest format in Trivium’s lineup, featuring a 66-diameter flat-shouldered bottle with a 43/400 continuous thread, and was debuted with the launch of Bravo Sierra.

Finally, Trivium took home Bronze in the Sustainability category for Doothie – a smoothie drink for dogs. Produced for Petcura Gmbh as part of Tönnies Holding ApS & Co. KG, the can is a three-piece welded tinplate with a 52mm EOE produced out of Trivium Hungary. The “smoothie” is a liquid food supplement for dogs, introduced in the first quarter of 2022. It comes in a range of flavors which all address different nutritional needs. The metal packaging protects and preserves the food for significantly longer compared to other packaging materials and the easy open end makes it simple to use. Because all components of the can are made out of tinplate, the packaging is fully recyclable and will recycle forever.
