Ardagh Group wins ‘Packaging Company of the Year’ at UK Packaging Awards

Ardagh Group is honoured to be awarded the prestigious title of ‘Packaging Company of the Year’ at the UK Packaging Awards, held in London on 22 November.

In arriving at their decision, judges commented; “It has been a transformational year for Ardagh. Material acquisition bedded down and listed on NYSE.  The clear winner of packaging company of the year.”

Paul Coulson, Chairman and Chief Executive of Ardagh said “We are delighted to win this fantastic award, which reflects our long-established record of investment in product innovation, operational excellence and sustainability. All 2,500 colleagues at our nine UK plants have contributed to Ardagh’s successful development into a leading global packaging group over the past two decades, and can feel justifiably proud of this latest accolade. We remain focused on the further growth and development of our business in the UK and globally.”

The company is also delighted to win the Glass Pack of the Year Award (Other Drinks and Foods) for its Duerr’s unique preserve jar that looks and feels like citrus peel; Judges were impressed by the design innovation in the intricate detailing of the Duerr’s jar texture, commenting: “Wonderfully tactile and aesthetically pleasing, this is a very attractive pack with clever orange peel imitation. It should certainly appeal to the intended younger consumer.”

The awards, organised by Packaging News, welcomed entries from every area of the packaging supply chain and received a record number this year. Winners received their awards at a ceremony held at the Grosvenor Hotel.
