About De Gouden Noot competition
The Gouden Noot is the worlds’ most competitive packaging innovation contest. It’s almost like the Olympics. Every second year the packaging industry gets the opportunity to win only one bronze, silver or gold award. There are no categories. The jury consists of 20 packaging experts covering all aspects of the packaging industry.
With the Gouden Noot, the Dutch Packaging Centre (NVC) stimulates innovations in the field of packaged products and packaging. The Gouden Noot owes its name to the unique trophy that contains a solid gold walnut (noot in Dutch), which symbolises a sustainable, effective and innovative packaging.
