The FPA has conducted its annual Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition since 1956 to showcase the industry’s ongoing innovations and advances that have changed the face of the packaging industry worldwide. The competition is among the most respected in the industry due in part to the outstanding calibre of packaging entries, its objectives, its methodical judging process, and the extensive follow-up media coverage of the competition winners. “Its focus on new technologies, processes, printing techniques and sustainability of flexible packaging, places the Achievement Awards Competition in a class by itself,” said the organization.
