Label Industry Global Award winners announced

Monday, 15 September, 2014


The achievements of the international label industry were celebrated last week at the Label Industry Global Awards, held as part of Labelexpo Americas.

The 2014 R Stanton Avery Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Suzanne Zaccone, executive vice-chairman and former president and co-owner of GSI Technologies. Zaccone, the award’s first ever female recipient, was honoured for her determination in business and commitment to the industry as an inspiring role model and mentor.

The Award for Innovation (over 300 employees) went to Avery Dennison, while the Award for Innovation (under 300 employees) was presented to joint winners Stephanos Karydakis SA and Nuova GIDUE.

Bio4Life BV won the Award for Sustainability for its combining of a biodegradable face material with a biodegradable adhesive to provide an EN-certified solution for fruit labelling.

“The calibre of this year’s entrants was exceptionally high and it has been one of the toughest judging sessions we have had in the awards’ history. The winners, especially Suzanne, have had an enormous impact on the industry and their significant contributions across all parts of the label printing and converting business have been far and wide reaching. My congratulations go to all of the finalists and winners at this year’s awards,” said Mike Fairley, chairman of the judges.
