Plastipak celebrates double success at the UK Packaging Awards
Plastipak Packaging’s European operation has once again won recognition of its innovation and excellence by scooping two awards at the UK Packaging Awards. The ceremony took place at London’s Hilton on Park Lane on November 11.
Plastipak’s success at the UK Packaging Awards follows a run of achievement, having scooped three gold and two bronze awards at the recent Starpack Awards, held on September 10.
E-LiquiPack, a packaging system for e-liquid used to refill electronic cigarettes, won the Innovation of the Year Award, with judges describing it as: “non-fiddly, despite it’s small size. It solves several problems, including legislation requirements, in a very clever way”.
Plastipak’s second award was for SprayPET Reveal, described as the world’s first transparent bag-on-valve aerosol system, which won the Best New Concept Award. The award-winning innovation impressed the judging panel, commenting that SprayPET Reveal is: “a fantastic, well thought out product, offering a great consumer experience”.
Kinza Sutton, marketing manager of Plastipak Packaging Europe, said: “With the UK Packaging awards being such a prestigious event, we are delighted with such an amazing result! Being recognised for our innovative solutions and commitment to developing new concepts for market is testament to the talent, creativity and hard work of everyone at Plastipak.
“Following the rebranding of APPE in July, success in these awards is very important to our business and Plastipak as a whole, sending out a strong message to our customers that we are a truly inspiring business that can solve challenges and deliver higher levels of industry innovation.”
