Rewarding every area of the packaging industry
The UK Packaging Awards are organised by Packaging News and are unique in recognising every area of the packaging supply chain.
The event is now in its eleventh year and in that time has become the leading packaging awards event in the UK market.
The judging process is strictly impartial and the categories reward a broad range of areas including packaging quality and consistency, business strategy, financial performance and personal achievement.
Honouring quality and performance
The UK Packaging Awards has a category for all segments of the industry, from corrugated and flexible packaging to design and investment in equipment.
Each award is split between two key category types, the Quality Awards or the Performance Awards:
