WestRock Company, a leading provider of differentiated paper and packaging solutions, received 12 awards at the 75th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition. The awards include the inaugural Digital Application of the Year Award for its Crown Royal Rodeo Digital Campaign.
Sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC), the competition is judged by a panel of packaging experts. The awards recognize cartons that represent the best in converting excellence, innovation and sustainability that the North American folding carton industry has provided its customers over the past year.
WestRock’s Crown Royal Rodeo Digital Campaign received the PPC’s first Digital Application of the Year Award for its use of high-quality printing on transfer-metallized 24-point board, rather than traditional 12-point board. Multiple rodeo-inspired images wrap around the carton, designed to capture the consumer’s eye from every angle. The campaign also received Gold and Excellence awards in this year’s competition.
“At WestRock, we know packaging can help differentiate our customers' products and help them win with consumers,” said Pete Durette, president of Enterprise Solutions & Strategy for WestRock. “We are proud to have been honored by the Paperboard Packaging Council. These winning designs represent the value we provide our customers through insights-driven solutions and innovation made possible by WestRock’s talented design, commercial and operations team.”
