The National Association of Container Distributors (NACD) announced this year’s winners of their annual Packaging Awards competition. Awards were given in 12 categories, plus Best of Show. Each category featured Bronze, Silver and Gold award winners.


This year, Mold-Rite closures can be found atop of two of the following award winning packages: Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee developed by Berlin Packaging and the Master Cast 1-2-1 package developed by TricorBraun.  

NACD Product Winners

Stumptown Cold Brew Concentrate earned a Silver award in the Beverage category and is topped with the MRP RMX 38mm continuous thread closure. This new double strength coffee is made with just two ingredients - the highest quality coffee and water.  Click HERE to check it out.


The Master Cast 1-2-1 package earned honors in not one, but two categories - Best Use of Stock Components category with a Bronze award, as well as a Gold award for the same package in the Novelty category. This product utilizes our CRC closures in both red and white. MasterCast provides a clear art coating resin that won't shrink, distort or yellow once cured. The two part epoxy resin self-levels to form a perfectly flat and shiny finish. It features excellent UV resistance, clarity and transparency, making the resin system particularly suitable for the protection and decoration of paintings, artwork, sculptures, jewelry, photos, tabletops and counters.
