Global manufacturing company Enercon has been presented with an award for its work with Unilever on the Hellmann's Mayonnaise Squeeze Bottle.
The 2015 Association for Dressings and Sauces presented Unilever and it's chosen partner Enercon with 'Package of the Year' award, praising the product's consumer friendly, easy-to-use design, reported packagingnews.co.uk.
Tom Wajda, research and design director at Unilever said, “We worked with Enercon Industries to design a bottle to help consumers get the most out of the product, and the most product out of the bottle. The squeeze bottle aims to prevent users from having to shake or scrape the container to get the sauce, while the “clean lock cap” aims to eliminate drips.”
Unilever first approached Enercon after facing challenges when trying to apply an appropriate induction seal on the product, and according to Ryan Schuelke, Vice President of sales at Enercon Industries, “this was not a one-size-fits-all project. To ensure Unilever could achieve perfect seals, our engineers fitted the induction sealers with custom sealing heads designed to focus the sealing energy directly to the foil’s position.”
According to packagingnews.co.uk, Unilever has since selected Enercon Industries as its 'Supporting Vendor of the Year' for the award.
