Trivium is celebrating the international design award for its Cocinero aerosol! Manufactured for brand owner Molinos Rio de la Plata, the Cocinero aluminium aerosol for sunflower oil was awarded by the 2020 International Metal Decorating and Packaging Association (IMDPA) for exceptional quality and precise consistency in the pursuit of decorating and packaging excellence.
When cutting edge packaging technology combines with inspirational design to create genuine brand differentiation, the teams behind a development can take justifiable pride in the achievement. After securing a gold trophy 2 months ago, Trivium Packaging’s original metal can designs in 2019 for Gaya Coffee gained the company the added satisfaction of a much coveted 2020 iF Design Award.
The highly competitive awards, now in their 67th year, attracted a record entry of 7,298 innovative products that were launched in 2019, making life very challenging for the 78 distinguished international judges. They had no hesitation in declaring the Gaya can a winner in the Packaging Discipline.
Manufactured at Trivium’s manufacturing plant in Deventer, the Netherlands, for its Dutch customer Concept Drinks, the exquisitely-designed shaped can was made possible by several innovations along the supply chain. Notable was the expansion of the can size by an impressive 26 per cent under 40 bar pressure to achieve the desired shape.
Another distinguishing feature of the patented design is gold printing on both the lid and the base of the can, complementing the gold speckled printing over the sophisticated dark green body.
Guus Backelandt, co-owner of Gaya Gold Coffee is thrilled with this latest award and adds, “Concept Drinks came to Trivium with a challenging concept where the packaging has to express the premium brand DNA of our product. Both Trivium’s technical know how and creativity, as well as constantly seeking the boundaries of what is technically possible, made this whole project such a success.”
Trivium’s Martin de Olde, Head of Marketing and Business Development in Europe views the accolade as an important milestone in contemporary metal packaging: “For the Gaya can to have won over the judges demonstrates the value of high quality metal cans as stylish and functional, able to fulfill the most demanding marketing, branding and environmental requirements.”
How brand owners can communicate sustainability performance more effectively
Jenny Wassenaar, VP Sustainability at Trivium, highlights how brand owners could take the next step and show that their packaging is truly sustainable, taking into account the ability to protect products during transportation, expected shelf life, and how these factors impact expected food waste.
White paper: The holistic approach to measuring sustainability
Packaging material selection has become more complex in this era of increased environmental awareness. The importance of sustainability is undeniably growing. In this white paper, we present an approach to a Holistic Packaging Sustainability Assessment that expands traditional LCA methods to account for circularity while also factoring in the impact of packaging materials on the waste stream and improving shelf life.
Brand’s history captured in a quartet of delightful illustrations
Behind many popular brands lies an interesting history and many intriguing stories. Trivium has been responsible for some memorable examples, and the pick of the 2020 collection is likely to be the limited edition sardine cans celebrating the 100th anniversary of Pointe de Penmarc’h.
Building a beverage brand on sustainability
Proud Source Water’s strategy for succeeding in the highly competitive bottled water market was to appeal to both environmentally conscious and quality-conscious consumers. Key to achieving that goal was product packaging that had the lowest possible end-of-life impact but also met requirements for durability and resealability.
Farrow & Ball enhances brand image with Trivium Metal Packaging
Farrow & Ball has built its brand on the pillars of beauty and eco-friendliness. With Trivium metal cans printed and produced in various sizes from 750 ml to 5 L, the brand has established a recognisable and iconic package that matches the quality of the contents.
