A Golden Evening for Fairfield
A Golden Evening.
Fairfield Dairy were on a golden high as they returned home from a successful night at the IPSA Gold Pack packaging awards held in Johannesburg recently.
This prestigious competition is held every two years and is designed to showcase and honour the growth and innovation of the packaging industry in South Africa. This year the guest speaker was Tom Schnieder, the president of the World Packaging Organisation, who addressed the room about packaging trends and what we can expect to change.
With over 200 entrants only 59 products were selected as finalists, and fewer of those receiving Bronze, Silver and Gold medals for their creativity, functionality and design.
Having never entered this competition before, Fairfield Dairy were pleased to receive a finalist position. To their surprise they were honoured to receive a Bronze medal for their Woolworths Yogi Choobes packaging in the “food” category, and a shining Gold medal for their Woolworths Hey Brew cafe latte flavoured milk range, in the “non-alcoholic beverage” category.
Beth Lang, a representative from Fairfield Dairy, said “It is a huge honour for us to be acknowledged for our innovation amongst so many packaging legends!”
