Scanstar to Smurfit Kappa for easily handled moving boxes
Smurfit Kappa has won first prize in the Scanstar packaging awards for folded and easy-to-carry moving boxes to Clas Ohlson. Scanstar is arranged by the Scandinavian Packaging Association (SPA), a coordinating body for the five Nordic countries’ national packaging organisations.
The idea behind the solution was from the beginning to create a more city-friendly moving-box., easy to carry and handle on the way home from the shop. Compact folded boxes packed as a five-pack and equipped with a handle designed by Lars Petersson at Smurfit Kappa in Gävle solved the problem.
The jury summed up the winning product’s benefits as follows: "The packaging solution is simple and functional for transport and storage of boxes. It represents minimum of material use.
Winning a Scanstar award means the packaging also will be among the entries in the global Worldstar packaging competition.
