ADF Awards 2020 shortlist revealed

The ADF Awards shortlist has been revealed, ahead of the ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 event at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles on 29 and 30 January.

Now in their 14th year, the ADF Awards are designed to single out the best innovations in the aerosol and dispensing sector. Tubex, KAO, Toyo and Anyway Spray are among the brands that have been shortlisted in the 2020 awards.

Emma Appert, marketing leader for ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020, said: “The ADF and PCD Awards presentation ceremony is always a highlight of the event. When we opened nominations in June we were inundated with entries, and the judging panel has been hugely impressed by the innovation on display and the quality of the submissions.

“A prevalent tech-led trend has been the growth of 3D printing. This featured in multiple categories with brands using it as a vehicle for personalisation at scale and also for ‘premiumisation’. High volume products are increasingly able to level the playing field with competitors in the luxury space in exploring creative avenues to make packaging more sophisticated.”

This year’s ADF Awards judging panel was formed of panel president Jean Blottière, general secretary of Comité Français des Aérosols (the French Aerosol Association), and judges from Kao, Johnson & Johnson and Virbac.
