DS Smith Packaging has received the UK Packaging Award for the Corrugated: Retail Ready/Point-of-sale Category. Its “quick erect” corrugated and laminated “Easy-Erect Asparagus Tray” collapses automatically for easy re-use or disposal. What makes the tray especially convenient is that the container utilizes a moisture-resistant PET liner to end the need for washing.
These features factor into savings for retailers and were engineered specifically around the fact that asparagus has a short season. One judge’s notes on the retail-ready packaging read:
“Does everything it needs to do. Easy on the eye, functional and fantastically well executed. Well done.”
