Bunzl Australia and New Zealand has been recognised at the 2024 WorldStar Global Packaging Awards in the Labelling and Decoration category for its Sustain OzHarvest Collection. Hosted by the World Packaging Organisation, the WorldStar Global Packaging Awards are the pre-eminent global award in packaging – illustrating the continual advancement of sustainable packaging design and technology around the world.

Showcasing eye-catching designs featuring Australian iconography promoting key messages of sustainability, Bunzl’s Sustain brand launched the OzHarvest Collection to encourage conversations about responsible land management and care for the environment. Each unique design was crafted with the intention to draw attention to different areas of our environment and encourages further education through an on-pack QR code. Made from FSC®-certified wood-pulp paper with an aqueous coating and certified AS4736 compostable, the collection helps increase recyclability and re-pulpability potential, and decreases residue in the ANZ region recycling process.

According to Bunzl’s Managing Director Lance Ward, “good packaging should be an essential part in our solution to waste and this WorldStar Award confirms the importance of packaging innovation on a global level”.

Collaborating with not-for-profit food rescue organisation OzHarvest, Bunzl has donated the equivalent of two meals to Australians in need with every carton sold – providing a quantifiable achievement and purposeful product delivering real change. Through aesthetic design, manufacturing considerations, sustainable product life and collaboration with OzHarvest, the collection promotes a more sustainable future aligning with Sustain’s brand ethos, Australia’s 2025 National Packaging Targets, the 10 Sustainable Packaging Design Guidelines and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (Goal 2, Goal 12 and Goal 17).
