Mintel have a strong interest in the world of packaging, working with many packaging manufacturers and packaging professionals around the world. Keith Barnes, the chairman of the packaging society, writes regularly for Mintel and provides brilliant insight into packaging developments and innovation.

The annual Starpack awards showcase the innovative world of packaging. In 2010 awards were given in a range of categories including Alcoholic Beverage, Consumer products, Decoration, Environment, Food & Beverage, etc.

The overall winner was this package from Crown – an innovative cap for drinks which is both practical and time saving, and which makes drinking from a can a more pleasurable experience. Some other winners were this one from Tide and this one from Le Froglet.

Congratulations to all of those, but more importantly, don’t forget to get your entries in for 2011 from March.
