Packaging plays a vital role for food and drinks, from contamination protection, extending shelf life, driving sustainability goals and a circular economy to creating an identity for a particular product or brand.

The Hive Best Packaging Award category will recognise the best innovation and/or application of packaging for food and/or beverage products.

“In developing the awards, we wanted the name to reflect the complexity, inter-connectedness, ambition, and tirelessness of Australia’s food and drink manufacturing sector. We couldn’t go past the concept of bees and their hive, a flawless system that runs 24/7, driven by a dedicated and determined workforce to consistently deliver a product to the highest standard. And so, the Hive Awards were born,” said Kim Berry, editor of Food & Drink Business.
