Jones was proud to be named Best of Show for Package Innovation at the 2021 PAC Canadian Virtual Awards ceremony on June 16.

PAC Packaging Consortium, which has been the voice of the Canadian packaging industry since 1950 and serves all of North America, hosts its prestigious leadership awards every two years to recognize outstanding products in several packaging-related categories.

This year, Jones took home the leading title of Best of Show Package Innovation for our complex multi-panel folding carton designs produced for McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a division of Johnson & Johnson Inc. This is the second Best of Show Package Innovation honour we have received, winning the same title at PAC’s 2019 Canadian Awards for our intelligent, connected packaging.

“The transition from the standard folding carton to those with multiple, wrap-around panels is an excellent solution to new labelling regulations,” says Jim Downham, President & CEO of PAC. “This is a solid execution of technology to meet legal requirements.”

Jones created 50 innovative multi-panel folding carton designs for over 150 SKUs in response to new Plain Language Labelling packaging regulations from Health Canada. These cartons accommodate significantly more product information required by regulations, while maintaining the same retail shelf footprint. Using a combination of proprietary primers, coatings and adhesives, multi-panel folding carton designs can be opened and resealed while meeting all pharmaceutical critical-to-quality measures.

PAC award winners were chosen following a thorough panel review process. The judges for the competition – all dedicated industry experts – are drawn from over 2,300 PAC members representing the most recognized names in the packaging industry.

The PAC competition gives Jones an opportunity to showcase our unique prepress and printing capabilities, and through close collaboration, dedication and service to our clients, we continue to produce award-winning products recognized nationwide.
