1st place at the International Packaging Design Student Competition

puracon GmbH congratulates its packaging engineer Leonie Strohbeck on receiving the WPO WorldStar Student Award. The “TheShellbox” packaging, developed by Leonie Strohbeck and her team, was awarded the WPO Prize 2018 and is thus among the top 3 of the world’s best student packaging of the year.

The Shellbox is an environmentally friendly pistachio packaging made of cardboard. It serves not only as product packaging, but also for presentation and as a storage container for the pistachio shell. Thanks to its reclosability and easy disposal, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic packaging. More about the innovative packaging concept can be found here.

The WorldStar Student Awards are presented by the World Packaging Organisation and are designed to promote the talents of students in the field of packaging. The WPO’s worldwide visibility gives the winners the opportunity to make a professional impact and facilitate their entry into a professional packaging career.

At puracon, we are proud that Leonie Strohbeck enriches our team and helps us to support our customers with innovative medical packaging developments.
