The Award of Excellence was awarded to Trivium Packaging (France) for the Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc bottle, which was launched following the success of the Disney film “Frozen II.” Developed, produced, and filled in France, this 300ml can holds Mont Blanc’s thermal water spray.

Trivium was recognized with a Platinum medal, the highest-ranking available, in the 2021 EcoVadis sustainability ratings. EcoVadis reviews a participating organization’s performance across four judged categories: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.

The coveted Platinum designation, reflects the dedication Trivium Packaging has to sustainability, said the company.
Additionally, Trivium was awarded the Silver Pentaward, recognizing excellence in packaging design, for its TITUS project. This project was carried out in partnership with the iconic TITUS sardine products in Morocco, as the company made the transition from steel to aluminum packaging. Together, Trivium created three unique, color-coded designs to differentiate TITUS’ products, while maintaining an eco-conscious environmental footprint.
