De Gouden Noot: will Masterpack win a packaging innovation award?

Posted on 26 augustus 2022

We’re excited to announce that we are competing in an innovation competition for the packaging industry, launched by the Nederlands Verpakkingscentrum.

About the competition

With ‘De Gouden Noot’, the NVC (Dutch Packaging Center) stimulates 'holistic' innovations in packaged products and packaging. The competition has no subcategories; all entries will be assessed in their entirety on their overall innovativeness, making it all the more exciting.


The competition gets its name from the unique trophy containing a solid gold walnut, symbol of sustainable, effective and innovative packaging. While this would certainly look cool in our headquarters, we’re in it to spread more awareness about our sustainable packaging solution: Modified Atmosphere Packaging!


We’ve already made it to the last 10 candidates.


The moment of truth will be on September 15, 2022, In the second jury round. We and other finalists will be able to present their entry in front of the entire jury. The jury then decides which entry will win the Gold and which will win the Silver and Bronze Walnut.


Stay tuned and follow us on our social media channels to find out where we’ll end up!
