Friday, 22 June, 2012

The winner of the 2012 Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) scholarship has been announced. Mark Dingley, APPMA Chairperson, announced at the 2012 Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) National Conference last week that Anna Roland is this year’s scholarship winner.

Roland is a Technical Officer with Betta Foods Australia. The APPMA scholarship will enable her to undertake a Diploma in Packaging Technology through the AIP.

“Anna has had the opportunity to work within the food and packaging industries and has completed various projects including assisting in film sealing, which was her first exposure to the complexities involved in designing and implementing successful packaging,” Dingley said.

“During the judging it was obvious that she has made a sustained effort and commitment to her studies to date and has gained the support and confidence of her employer and recognition of her professional aspirations.”

Roland said the scholarship gives her the opportunity to develop her understanding of the design and practical aspects of packaging. Without the scholarship, she said, it would take her much longer to save up to complete the qualification.

“I am hoping that the learnings from the Diploma in Packaging Technology will provide greater support to the production floor and in the development of new products by our marketing and technical teams,” Roland said.

“In a few years I hope that I will continue to be learning and challenged every day to use all the skills I have developed, and hopefully see the fruits of my current role in improving GMP, process improvement and implementing new products.”

Roland will commence the diploma this year.
