The UK Packaging Awards, black tie, event at the glamorous London Hilton on Park Lane is a spectacular night of celebration, rewarding high achievement and best practice throughout the packaging industry. It is the high point of the packaging year with many representatives present from design and production companies who specialise in making packs and containers for branded products which then appear on our supermarket shelves in a form that is both appealing and attractive to customers.

FORZA at UK Packaging Awards event

FORZA were shortlisted in the Label of the Year category for Raspberry K2 alongside four other products from major companies. Blair Hart, Head of Marketing and Nigel Davison, Head of Print and Packaging Design attended the glitzy event representing FORZA, which was hosted by comedian Andy Parsons.

The evening commenced with a drinks reception followed by dinner with 720 guests from many companies specialising in producing packs as diverse as bespoke metal boxes to specially designed and moulded, coloured glass and plastic bottles. These designs quickly become familiar to us as they appear in shops containing household name products. The pair met representatives from several other companies working with a broad variety of materials and processes and were happy to renew contact with existing suppliers and contractors.

At the end of the celebrations things came to a close pleasantly when Blair and Nigel went to the bar for good night drinks to round off a very enjoyable evening.
