Orora Fibre Packaging, Altvin, and Wines by Geoff Hardy have been named as finalists in the 2017 Wine Industry Impact Awards.

Orora's "beautifully crafted and cost-efficient digital imagery on its printing and packaging processes" was recognised for  “delivering on the promise of what’s inside”, according to judges.

Altvin and Wines by Geoff Hardy were co-nominated to demonstrate the impact of a cloud-based software platform solution for specifying and managing bottling and packaging with real-time supply chain collaboration.


The annual awards, presented by Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA), showcase excellence in improving the competitiveness and capability of the nation’s grape and wine industry while developing exciting new consumer experiences.

Winners will be announced at an event at the Adelaide Town Hall on Thursday 19 October.
