ADF Innovation Award 2024 winners announced
The awards were selected by a 19-strong panel, and included representatives from the likes of L'Oréal, Unilever International, Procter & Gamble, Henkel and Coty.
The jury decided to purvey six awards and issue six certificates in celebration of the best innovations and launches in the past year in the global market for aerosol and dispensing technology.
Alain D’haese, jury president of the ADF Innovation Awards, said: “The process was smooth and efficient because we have a great panel of experts who know what they are talking about.
“The trend is sustainability across all categories of products and criteria. It’s clear to see this trend or movement is coming, even if it is not in the mainstream of the market. The direction is clear.
“I’d like to thank all of those who submitted an entry. It’s fantastic to see people challenging themselves and getting something reviewed by their peers. That made for a high standard of competition, and the competition was fierce. So, the winners can be particularly proud of what they achieved and it will hopefully energise development departments.”
