The bar has been raised by Berlin Packaging, the world’s largest supplier of glass, plastic, and metal containers and closures, with the biggest awards haul of any company in recent National Association of Container Distributor (NACD) history. Berlin Packaging received an unprecedented 15 medals during the NACD 2019 packaging awards competition, celebrating the most innovative packaging design from the past year. Including these latest award victories, Berlin Packaging has been awarded more than 50 total NACD awards over the past six years.

The $2.6 billion packaging juggernaut’s 15 awards spanned eight categories, including sweeps of two highly-competitive categories – Beverage and Household Goods. In total, nine of these wins were attributed to projects with the company’s world-class design and innovation division, Studio One Eleven, which offers structural package design and branding services at no charge in exchange for packaging business. Additionally, Berlin Packaging flexed its international muscle by winning projects from Italy and England, two of the company’s 100+ global sales and warehouse locations.
