Customers recognise us as Manufacturer of the Year

We are delighted to announce that we have added further silverware to our trophy cabinet. At last week’s FPA Awards ceremony at the Grand Hotel in Brighton we picked up the much-coveted Manufacturer of the Year Award.

Some 450 FPA members, judges, comedian Jo Caulfield and esteemed guests were present to witness us pick up the award, as voted for by customers.

CEO Graham Williams said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with this win. To be recognised by the customers that we serve on a daily basis is a huge compliment and confirms what excellent products and service we provide. 

“This has been a successful and exciting 12 months for us having recently gained ‘AA’ Global Standards Status from BRC, two further UK Packaging Awards and the Unique Packaging Solution Award at the Café Quality Awards. This latest recognition has been achieved as part of a great team effort.” 

We were also highly commended in the Product Innovation Award for our Open Sandwich Box and HandRap Strip Laminate.
