Vessl™ Wins the Prestigious 'Marking Award' at Food and Beverage Innovation Forum in Shanghai, China

Vessl Wins Marking Award

Each year, a global packaging design competition called the Marking Awards, commissioned by the Food and Beverage Innovation Forum (FBIF), gathers for their awards ceremony in Shanghai, China. The Marking Awards brings together world-class designers in a high-level global summit generating an ecosystem of creative packaging designs. 

This year, founder and CEO of Gizmo Beverages Walter Apodaca accepted the Marking award for innovative technology on behalf of his company's patented closure the Vessl™. This prestigious award is granted to products that disrupt the market via groundbreaking technology. When asked what he thought about winning the award, Mr. Apodaca had this to say: "It was an honor enough to even be in a competition with so many great products from some of the world’s largest companies, but to actually win and be recognized for our contribution to the environment went beyond all of our expectations. I founded this company on the principle that the Vessl™ technology will help to break the disposable bottle paradigm. The Marking Award is confirmation that a panel of highly knowledgeable industry professionals from around the world recognize this potential as well."

Winners of the Marking Award are first filtered through a public election online and are then presented to a panel of authoritative expert designers aimed at promoting designs that are both innovative and practical. The purpose of this panel is to find emerging packaging talents, push forward communication in design originality, share packaging design resources and motivate worldwide food-packaging designers. It is no surprise the Vessl™ caught the panel’s attention.
