Functionality rules! The exclamation rings true for an extrusion/blow-molded polypropylene bottle used for Finest Call brand cocktail mixes used in bars restaurants and other foodservice institutions. Packager American Beverage Marketers enlisted distributor Ryco Packaging (Omaha NE) for the bottle as well as the functional closure and label. At its 33rd annual convention held last month the National Assn. of Container Distributors awarded Ryco the Bernard M. Seid Best of Show Award for the Finest Call bottle. NACD cited the bottle's contact clarity fill capability pourability brand identification ease of handling and product image among the factors that merited the top award. The competition included more than 220 total entries. NACD distributed gold silver and bronze awards within seven categories: food cosmetics/personal care pet and vet drug and pharmaceutical household chemical general industrial and automotive.
