The Pentawards were held in Paris last month and among the 1200 entries from 46 countries were a few from Godzone. More importantly, three projects by specialist consumer branding and packaging agency Redcactus made the final cut and were announced as winners.
Redcactus' wins were all in the food category, scoring a silver trophy for the KFC Australia Packaging Refresh, bronze for Tararua Voila and another bronze for Sanitarium Light'n'Tasty.
Directors Chris Chong and Mike Pearce attended in person to celebrate the wins, which they say will be a great lead in to their 20th year in business in 2013.
The Pentawards celebrate outstanding packaging design through an annual worldwide competition.
