Glass going for gold across the board at UK Packaging Awards 2016

The shortlist for the UK Packaging Awards 2016 has been announced – and British Glass is delighted to see its members shortlisted across six categories.


From Investment Project of the Year to Best Packaging of a New Product – UK container glass manufacturers are demonstrating their drive for excellence and innovation.

 

British Glass is sponsoring two awards categories at this year’s ceremony: Glass Pack of the Year Everyday and Glass Pack of the Year Premium – reflecting the wide appeal of glass across different product types and price points.

 

British Glass Head of Container Affairs Rebecca Cocking said:

 

“Our container glass manufacturers make an important contribution to building brands and helping their customers to meet their function, supply, design and sustainability goals. From raw materials to decoration – it takes a distinctive blend of experience and skills to deliver world class glass packaging – and we’re proud to put our name to celebrating that.”

 

The winners will be revealed at this year’s UK Packaging Awards dinner, which takes place at the Grosvenor Park Hotel, London on 27 October. The event happens alongside the second Packaging News Live conference at Olympia, London.

 

British Glass as well as many of its members and their customers will be at the event – which encompasses all materials and forms of packaging.

 

“It’s a great opportunity to see the best in class from across the packaging industry, explore the cross-over of concepts between materials and products and see what other packaging materials are doing. Who knows what ideas and innovations this year’s Packaging Live and Packaging Awards will spark.” said Rebecca.
