COMPETITIONS LES PRIX GAÏA / MIEUX VIVRE AS PART OF LES JOURNÉES DUX MIEUX MANGER, MIEUX VIVRE

WHAT ARE LES PRIX GAÏA / MIEUX VIVRE ?

Les Prix GAÏA / Mieux Vivre is Quebec’s largest bio-food packaging competition, which annually rewards excellence and creativity in the packaging value chain: packaging (primary, secondary, tertiary), handling, logistics, points of sale.

For the 8th edition of Les Prix GAÏA / Mieux Vivre, sustainable design will have a significant importance in the evaluation of candidates.

NEW THIS YEAR !

Because food is no longer just a matter of content, but also of container and repercussions – both on our health and that of the planet – it was only natural to bring together Les Prix GAÏA / Mieux Vivre, Les Grands Prix DUX / Mieux Manger and the DUX+ conferences in a brand new formula: Mieux Manger (Les Grands Prix DUX / Mieux Manger), Mieux Vivre (Les Prix GAÏA / Mieux Vivre).

During two days where food will be observed from all angles, professionals from the bio-food, nutrition, sustainable development, packaging and many other sectors will be able to learn, share and celebrate the best in these complementary spheres.

In a brand new format, the Mieux Vivre Day will combine a series of groundbreaking conferences on eco-responsibility, optimized packaging, design and sustainable development, to conclude with Les Prix GAÏA / Mieux Vivre gala (formerly Les Prix GAÏA). Since Gaïa is the goddess of the earth, it was only natural to position this day in response to the many environmental issues related to packaging.
