India Star award is one of the most prestigious national awards for recognition of packaging design excellence in India.

Crop Protection Packaging BASF

BASF manufactures crop protection products for use in farms for agriculture purposes. The winning product addresses a nagging challenge of identifying an untampered product and reassuring farmers on their choices.

Premium Icecream Hokey Pokey

Hokey Pokey, a young startup ice cream brand based in India offers ridiculously good rich and creamy ice cream targeted at the youth. A bright new packaging has been designed for this quirky brand.

"Hokey Pokey as a brand is recognised today by its packaging, one of the first triggers consumers have when they hear Hokey Pokey is the distinctly coloured triangular shape. Consumers are able to identify the brand in retail display from a distance without even seeing the name. It clearly is distinct. Sales went up 30% post launch of the new packaging from a month to month perspective" - Rohan Mirchandani, CEO, Drums Food International Read More
