Three packaging companies have been recognised as “Partners for Growth” at Coca-Cola Amatil’s annual awards.

Labelmakers, Orora, and Graphic Packaging were among the companies feted at the Partner for Growth Awards, which the company says celebrate ingenuity and supplier commitments in helping Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) deliver innovation and results in a number of areas.

In the Customer Service category, Labelmakers beat out Fleetplus and Vivid technology for the prize. “Labelmakers assisted Amatil in ensuring SKUs (stock keeping units) were all updated for the Container Deposit Schemes rolled out across Australia, delivering outstanding customer service – and helping Amatil deliver on our own customers’ expectations,” said CCA.

Orora came out on top in Supply Continuity, beating both Labelmakers and Toll. “Orora delivered over one billion cans and components within Australia in 2018 with an almost perfect ‘delivery in full, on time’ (DIFOT) score,” said CCA.

Finally, Graphic Packaging won out over Vivid Technology and Fleetplus in the Quality category. “Graphic Packaging designed a suitable coating for cardboard packaging to limit cartons slipping in transport, which led to improved quality and a reduction in breakages and cost.”

According to Martyn Roberts, group CFO of CCA, the awards turn transactional arrangements into strong partnerships.

“Every nominee and winner has distinguished themselves over the course of 2018 to develop an intricate understanding of our Australian based businesses and a shared-value mindset leading to greater outcomes for all. This is what sets them apart from other suppliers in Australia.

“We’re proud to work with each of the winners and nominees and congratulate them on this recognition from our team,” he said.
