The Tube Council provides educational resources, information, and networking opportunities to professionals within the tube industry. For over seventy years, the Tube Council has grown from a meeting of owners of tube manufacturing operations to a council that represents the entire NA tube industry – tube manufacturers, as well as many of its partners supplying components or services to the industry.

Each year, Tube Council members 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 are also considered. Entries are considered in 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 considering package aesthetics, decoration and unique tube components. For the 2018 competition, jurors were comprised of individuals from such companies Mast Global, Harry’s and High Ridge Brands, as well as representatives from leading packaging journals including Packaging Digest, Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News and Beauty Packaging.

According to Bruno Lebeault, President of the Tube Council, “Tubes are definitely getting more attention and our Tube of the Year Competition is receiving more and more recognition by Brands”. He further remarked that “Recently, during our Fall Membership Conference which was attended by leading Brands using Tubes and other type of packaging, a key message was that these brand owners prefer tubes over other packaging types noting that tubes have a higher output compared to other containers, like bottles; tubes are a complete packaging without any need to apply a label or a cap; and decoration is usually better on tubes. " 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.
