DESIGN TEAM AWARD SPONSORED BY POLYSTAR
This new award recognises the exceptional design talent within the foodservice packaging sector. Please email to nominate your team
FPA RISING STAR AWARD
To recognise the foodservice packaging stars of the future.
The UK foodservice packaging is a hotbed of emerging talent, be it in manufacturing, environment, design, sales, marketing or any of the other areas that form the foodservice packaging supply chain.
The FPA Rising Star Award will recognise individuals in the first five years of their foodservice packaging lives who, whatever they do, are making a real difference to the company for which they work. Businesses are invited to nominate people within their own company or in companies they deal with and must explain, in a 200 – 300 word submission, how that person is making a difference and why they are worthy of the award. This should include details of the nominees’ successes in their career to date, how they have made an impact and highlight their outstanding achievements.
This Award will be judged by the 4 members of the FPA Board and by the Editor of Packaging News, Phil Chadwick and will be presented by the FPA.
Please send nominations to email@example.com by 18 February
