Success for Verallia at 2013 GPI Clear Choice Awards
Three glass bottles manufactured by Verallia North America won 2013 Glass Packaging Institute (GPI) Clear Choice Awards.
These include glass packaging for Green Flash Brewing Company’s ‘West Coast IPA beer’, Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Estates’ ‘Anew Riesling’ and Maize Valley Winery’s ‘Mad Cow wine’.
The awards are given to products packaged in glass that demonstrate strong consumer appeal, shelf impact and commercial success.
With these wins, Verallia North America has produced glass packaging for 72 beer, wine, spirits, beverage and food products that have won Clear Choice awards in the last 25 years.
The custom-designed, light-weight beer bottles Verallia North America manufactured for Green Flash Brewing Company’s West Coast IPA beer won the GPI’S 2013 President’s Choice Award for Advancements in Sustainability.
These innovative 12 and 22 ounce glass beer bottles feature an international style and expected volume and size, yet weigh significantly less than earlier versions. The revamped packaging design reduces the costs and carbon footprint associated with producing, filling and distributing the beer.
The private mould glass wine bottle Verallia North America manufactured for Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Estates’ Anew Riesling won the GPI’s 2013 Clear Choice Award for Wine Packaging Design.
The wine bottle Verallia North America manufactured for Maize Valley Winery’s Mad Cow wine won the GPI’s 2013 People’s Choice Award. This sweet white table wine is packaged in a classic Claret style glass bottle and features an eye-catching shrink sleeve with a black and white dairy cow pattern.
