CRP Print & Packaging, one of Europe’s leading decorative print and packaging groups has won the Design Team of the Year Category at the UK’s 2010 Packaging Awards, in addition to winning two silver awards at the prestigious POPAI Ceremony in October.
The company’s eight strong team of designers, who were named “Design Team of the Year” has more than 100 years’ experience and 4 specialist design degrees between them; they divide their time between CRP’s products of heavy duty, direct food contact, litho packaging and display products.
The Packaging Awards’ judging panel of industry experts was so impressed by the company’s ability to demonstrate consideration for structure, graphics and function over the last year that this led to the Corby based group being announced as the outright winner in this category.
At the POPAI Awards Ceremony, CRP’s Eat Natural Impulse Unit received the silver award in the Confectionary and Snack Products Temporary Display Category and a further silver for their already European award winning Hardy’s Bottle Floor Stand in the Alcoholic and Soft Drinks Category.
Mike Devine, Sales Manager of CRP’s Display Business, collected the award on behalf of his team commented “Once again, we are thrilled to have won two awards in very different categories. Our team have substantial skill, expertise and an innovative approach. These awards, judged by industry experts, acknowledge achievements for both us and our customers and are something we are extremely proud of.”
