Every Year, member companies of the Tube Council are encouraged to present the best and most innovative tubes in various market categories including the Personal Care, Oral Care, Pharmaceutical, Industrial and Household and Food markets. Innovations in sustainability and product components and processes for tubes are also considered. These tubes are considered for the Tube Council’s annual Tube-of-the-Year competition with each entry carefully evaluated by a jury composed of representatives from major consumer goods companies and industry professionals. For this competition, the jurors were comprised of individuals from such companies as L’Oreal USA and Colgate, as well as representatives from some leading packaging journals 

The 2016 competition recruited tube entries from a wide range of tube types noting different levels of decoration and dispensing features. 

Winners in the various categories will be honored later this year during the Tube Council’s Summer meeting in July during Cosmoprof Las Vegas.  

The Tube Council (www.tube.org ) is the association representing all the companies manufacturing tubes in North America as well as many of its partners supplying components or services to the industry. The mission of the association is to promote squeeze tubes as the preferred package of choice for brand marketers and consumers. 

According to Michael Hoard, President of the Tube Council, “The Tube Council competition gives suppliers the opportunity to display its most creative products in a friendly way to their competitors, the industry and to consumers highlighting some of the best tube products introduced over that past year.” It is great to see all companies working together towards a common goal, challenging each other on innovation and sustainability and helping consumer goods brands achieve their goals with innovative tube packaging.
