ADF and PCD Awards Paris 2020 winners announced 



Winners had a greater-than-ever focus on sustainability and disruptive design.


ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020, the dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume, luxury drinks & cosmetic packaging community, has just announced the winners of its dedicated awards: ADF and PCD Awards Paris 2020.

The ADF and PCD Awards Paris, now in their 14th and 16th years respectively, are designed to single out the very best innovations across the aerosol, dispensing and beauty sectors. They were hosted this year by actor and TV host Sandra Lou.

The PCD Awards jury was led by packaging expert Alain Béthune, and Hervé Bouix, senior vice president of packaging innovation at Estée Lauder. 


Jean Blottière, general secretary of Comité Français des Aérosols, was president of the ADF Awards judging panel.

For the ADF Awards, personal care and household names such as Kao, Tubex and Lindal received gongs alongside other exciting, innovative names like Anyway Spray and Virospack. 


For the PCD Awards, eco-design was a determining factor in packaging development and a source of much of the innovation presented this year. Notably, when it came to large-volume categories like personal care, but also increasingly as refillable solutions are seen as a way of offering new services and perceived value to consumers at the luxury end of the market.
