Building on the successful implementation of Arab Student StarPack, UNIDO and LibanPack are expanding StarPack by introducing a new industrial competition, Arab StarPack Professional, which will be an industry-level packaging competition for companies and industries in the Arab region.

The objective of Arab StarPack Professional is to increase awareness on current packaging trends from the aspects of marketing and functionality, to enable Arab SMEs to ensure compliance with international standards in packaging and labelling, and hence, improve the competitiveness of the Arab agro-food and other industrial sectors.

Arab StarPack Pro will recognize the best Packaging Design in consumer and industrial packaging design on the Arab level bringing awareness of the important value that lies in a well-designed brand packaging . Arab StarPack Pro will enable the winners from the Arab World to participate in the World Star Packaging Competition organizaed by the WPO.

To date, there has been no industry-level packaging competition in the Arab region, which is hindering the ability of Arab companies to participate in international packaging competitions mainly “World Star” competition organized by the World Packaging Organization (WPO). Therefore, introducing Arab StarPack Professional will provide an opportunity for winning Arab companies to be entitled to apply and participate in WPO’s World Star competition and gain international exposure and visibility. The competition will be fully accredited by WPO.
