In May 2018 our product innovation PERLAMED™-BLISTair received the most important global innovation prize, the "WorldStar Packaging Award" in Brisbane Australia.

In the last edition we already informed you about our new product BLISTair. In the meantime, it has received a lot more recognition around the world. In addition to the awards received in 2017, this year we were awarded with the "Alufoil Trophy 2018" and the "Swiss Packaging Award 2018", the most important packaging award in Switzerland. A national award like this is the pre-requisite to apply for the "WorldStar Packaging Award".This year, the jury of the World Packaging Organisation met in Brasil to categorise and evaluate the products submitted from around the globe. We were thrilled to learn that we were being invited to the award ceremony in Australia, as our product had again come high in the ranking.
So Wolfgang Grimm (CEO) and myself (CSO) started the long journey, combining the trip with other meetings in China and Australia.The award ceremony took place in Brisbane on 2nd May 2018 and we anxiously awaited the part where the products in our category "Medical and Pharmaceutical" would be nominated. All the individual products were presented and finally the tense moment arrived when they announced: "and the winner is: Perlen Packaging with the nominated product PERLAMED™-BLISTair."
It was truly a momentous occasion for us to be called up to the stage and to receive the most prestigious award on behalf of the company.
In the May edition of the "Pack aktuell" magazine the title said that BLISTair has revolutionised the dry-powder inhalator segment. We want to live up to this claim and use all our resources to bring to fruition the many customer projects we are working on.
