Judges from all over the world bestowed this honor on Keith Pearson of South Africa and Joe Foster of Australia.
“The Lifetime Achievement in Packaging Award was established with the aim of acknowledging and rewarding excellence in all aspects of packaging science, technology, design, and application across every country around the world,” explains Pierre Pienaar, WPO President. “The discipline of packaging is one that is truly global. The World Packaging Organisation is in a unique position to identify leading practitioners from around the world who have consistently pushed the boundaries in advancing the art, science, and application of packaging to serve the needs of an ever more demanding society. These prestigious awards will celebrate and preserve in perpetuity the collective achievements of these innovators.”
Annually, each WPO member (representing a voting member) is able to make up to one nomination through an online registration form. The honorees will be recognised during the WorldStar Award Ceremony & Gala Dinner, in Dusseldorf, Germany, on 8 May, 2020.
