Eleven Spanish packaging winners in the WorldStar Awards 2023 global competition

The WorldStar Awards are only open to products that have previously won awards in national or continental competitions recognised by the WPO which, in the case of Spain, are the Líderpack Awards organised by Graphispack Asociación and the Hispack trade show at Fira de Barcelona.

The country with the most WorldStar awards was Japan (26), followed by Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) - which were presented jointly - (19), India (18), Germany (18), Turkey (14), Austria (13) and China (12). The Spanish packaging, with eleven trophies, has placed eighth in the ranking of distinctions. South Korea (10), Brazil and the Czech Republic (both with 9) round off the top ten.

The director of Hispack, Xavier Pascual, pointed out that

"Spanish packaging is in a good moment, and its innovation and quality are highly valued at an international level".
