Trivium Triumphs in 2020 Can of the Year Awards

The 2020 Can of the Year awards, which would normally have been announced and presented at a well-attended annual summit, have just been published online. Despite the change, one element remained constant– Trivium Packaging’s success in several categories across a variety of food, drink and personal care products.

A gold medal was gained for the cutting edge tinplate end with easy peel aluminum membrane designed and produced by Trivium, together with Amcor and Kezzler for Royal Friesland Campina. The development reportedly featured an optimum program for applying the foil with a unique QR code for each product onto an EasyPeel lid at the company’s nutrition plant in Hoogeveen in the Netherlands.

Trivium was also awarded silver for the 250-milliliter impact-extruded aluminum bottle produced for the Washington, US-based Ste Michelle Wine Estates, Chateau Ste Michelle. The lightweight, single serve bottle stands-out in the growing market of non-traditional packaging in the wine industry. The elegantly designed wine bottle is a great technical achievement by the Trivium team in Youngstown, Ohio.

Adding to the medal haul were bronzes for the 7-ounce impact-extruded aluminum can for Formulated Solutions, Cutter Foaming Hand Sanitizer, and the 10-ounce impact-extruded aluminum bottle for Hand in Hand soap, produced at Trivium’s plant in Youngstown, Ohio as part of a project to convert personal care products into sustainable aluminum packaging.

“These awards represent our mission to deliver high quality, innovative, and sustainable packaging. There is no greater accomplishment than working closely with our partners to deliver packaging solutions that exceed expectations in protecting and promoting their brand,” said Rob Huffman, chief growth officer, Trivium.
