Awards continue to flow into DS Smith Packaging with the recent presentation of Gold, two Silvers and a highly commended accolade from the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA). The competition recognises outstanding flexographic printing, and adds to the high tally of awards DS Smith has received over recent months from WorldStar, Starpack and UK Packaging Awards.

The Gold went to DS Smith Packaging Clay Cross for a highly impactful Jaffa Yard pack used in the major supermarkets during the Christmas period. The wide web four colour pre-print on clay coated paper used water based inks and a registered varnish.

DS Smith Packaging Featherstone picked up a Silver award with a visually striking effect for Seabrooks Crips. The five colour print replicates a superb product shot and background texture that depicts a traditional potato sack. It demonstrates how DS Smith’s R-Flute® board is capable of being post printed in five colours to the highest standards.

Tony Foster, Sector Director, commented: “It is always a great honour to receive awards on behalf of our customers and their brands. We have lots of skilled people making good use of our PackRight business tools, turning ideas into commercial innovations. At DS Smith Packaging we are focused on helping customers succeed at the point of sale, whilst reducing cost and carbon in a sustainable manner. It’s how we Make Ideas Happen.
