Two of the gold awards were carried off by DS Smith Horncastle for its outstanding Cadbury Wispa Gold pre-print, which was converted at DS Smith Packaging Belper. The second gold was awarded for the Tilda’s Premium American Long Grain Rice sack. DS Smith Packaging Clay Cross also celebrated a gold award for its pre-printed Maynard’s Wine Gums pack.
DS Smith Packaging South West enjoyed sweet success winning silvers for both its Mars Galaxy Bubbles and Cadbury Caramel packs.
Two more silvers were awarded to DS Smith Horncastle for the Badshah Superior Aged Basmati Rice sack and the Natural Country Cool n Calm mix sack. Finally, Horncastle proved itself again with a bronze award for the Scats Country Store Dog Food sack.
Tony Foster, Director of DS Smith Packaging, commented: Flexographic pre and post print on corrugated has advanced so far in recent years that brand owners can take full advantage of the extra impact that top quality printing provides in store. What’s more, using tools like ImageRight, DS Smith Packaging can guarantee true and consistent colours to support brand integrity. Shelf impact starts with graphic design, is delivered by great print, and the outcome is better product sales. We are delighted to collect these awards on behalf of our customers.”
