Packaging award for Aqualisa
Published:  19 November, 2009

KENT: Aqualisa has won the 'Best Packaging of a New Product' award for its Midas 100 shower and its accompanying fixing bracket at this year's UK Packaging Awards.

The awards were held last week at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

The packaging of the Midas 100 shower and its fixing bracket – created in collaboration with Line Packaging – secured the judges' vote for its "installer-friendly design that allows the plumber to complete the 'first fix' of a showering installation by removing the fixing bracket with a pop-out section of the box, without disturbing the actual shower valve".

The awards' judging pane included key players from Waitrose, Tesco and the Museum of Brands.
