The winners of the 2020 ADF Awards have been revealed. On 29 January at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, winners in the personal care, household, pharmaceutical, industrial & technical application, aerosol packaging technology and sustainability categories were announced.
The ADF and PCD awards, now in their 14th and 16th years respectively, are designed to highlight the very best innovations in the aerosol, dispensing and beauty sectors. Jean Blottière, general secretary of the CFA – the French aerosol association – was the president of the ADF Awards judging panel.
Household names such as Tubex, Kao, Lindal, Anyway Spray and Virospack were among those to receive awards. “The ADF and PCD Awards presentation ceremony is always a highlight of the event,” said Emma Appert, marketing leader for the event. “When we opened nominations in June we were inundated with entries, and the judging panel was hugely impressed by the innovation on display and the quality of the submissions.
“All nominees should be proud, and we’d like to pass on our congratulations to all our Award and Certificate winners – it was a hard-fought contest this year. We’re halfway through ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020, and this was a great way to end day one. The innovation, diversity and dedication to causes like sustainability really are commendable.”
