CPI to sponsor Corrugated Category for UK Packaging Awards 2016
The Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) will sponsor the Corrugated: Online Retail and Consumer Goods category at UK Packaging Awards 2016, taking place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 27 October.
The category is open to all corrugated packs produced in the UK that are delivered directly to consumers, including packs for online retail, outer boxes for products such as drinks, packs for large consumer items, white goods and so on.
Competition for this award is tough as corrugated companies are synonymous with innovation and versatility for transit packaging. Corrugated can fit almost any shape and size, making it a vital logistics partner for online retailers, and is the most recycled packaging material in the country.
CPI’s Director of Packaging Affairs, Andy Barnetson, commented: “It’s the first time we have sponsored a corrugated category at the UK Packaging Awards. We feel it’s important to recognise the tremendous efforts put in by the Corrugated Industry to meet the demands of an everchanging retail landscape."
