Save Food Packaging Awards recognise innovation and sustainability

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has announced the winners of the inaugural Australia/New Zealand Save Food Packaging Awards.

The winners were announced during the 2016 AIP National Conference gala dinner on 1 June and were formally presented by the president of the World Packaging Organisation, Tom Schneider, who was visiting from the United States.

The Save Food Packaging Awards is a global program, developed by the World Packaging Organisation in conjunction with Messe Dusseldorf and Interpack, to recognise companies who are developing innovative and sustainable packaging that minimises food losses and food waste, extends shelf life and improves the supply of food.

A key purpose of the Save Food Packaging Awards is to raise awareness of the critical role of packaging in reducing food waste, resulting in a positive overall environmental impact.

The winners of the inaugural Save Food Packaging Awards for Australia and New Zealand are:

Retail Category

Winner: DON KRC for Cryovac Darfresh Vacuum Skin Packaging
High Commendation: Botanical Food Company for Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices

Food Services Category

Winner: SPC Ardmona for SPC ProVital Easy-Open Portion Control Fruit Cup
High Commendation: HealthShare NSW for My Food Choice

The Australia and New Zealand winners and high commendations will be formally recognised and displayed as a part of the global Save Food Packaging Program at Interpack 2017.
