Thoro has once again taken home a Gold and a few Silver (Excellence) Awards in the Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) annual Carton Competition. The National Paperboard Packaging Competition is the premier competition for carton manufacturers involved in the concept, design, print, performance, and shelf appeal of paperboard packaging. The 117 entries were judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, professors, and magazine publishers. All entries are weighted evenly, with the names of manufacturers unknown to the jury. Jury members evaluated package samples and their accompanying write-ups to select this year’s award winners. Entries were evaluated on a list of criteria including the development objectives, materials used, design, printing, converting processes, utilization of unique or innovative applications, and of course the final package itself.

Thoro is proud to have taken home three awards this year:
