Part of British Polythene Industries, bpi.consumer VMB is a leading UK printer and converter of food packaging. Operating from the country’s biggest single site flexographic printing facility the business specialises in providing packaging solutions that protect, preserve and promote food and drink products – be they fresh produce, liquids, bakery goods or frozen foods.
The business is currently celebrating its success following the receipt of three high profile awards at the recent EFIA Annual Print Awards ceremony where it picked up the Gold Award in the Technical Achievement category, the Silver Award in the Wide Web Line & Screen category and a Highly Commended citation.
The EFIA (European Flexographic Industry Association) Annual Print Awards offer participating companies the opportunity to gain public recognition of the outstanding degrees of excellence achieved using the flexographic printing process.
The Gold Award was received for the business’ expert use of inks and coatings in the creation of Warburton’s Tiger Loaf film. The end result was a bread bag which presents an extremely realistic paper feel pack.
The grant of the Silver Award recognised the excellent solid line and screen printing the business employed to great effect also on the Warburton’s Tiger loaf product. Thrilled to have already received two Awards the icing on the cake was the receipt of a Highly Commended Certificate for the company’s design work on the Morrison nut range.
All three Awards were accepted on behalf of the business by Chris Duffy, Print Manager at bpi.consumer VMB.
Speaking of the Awards win, Brian Taylor, Business Director, bpi.consumer VMB said: “We are delighted that our high performance packaging which provides added value in terms of product preservation has now also received recognition for its achievements in brand presentation and on-shelf impact.” He continued: “The receipt of not just one but three awards highlights the hard work of the whole bpi.consumer VMB team in providing excellent products and technical support to our customer partners.”
