Australia's leading natural health company Blackmores has awarded Pact Group top honours in its 2018 Supplier of the Year awards.

Pact was recognised with the highest honour at Blackmores' supplier awards evening held earlier this month, for the breadth of its portfolio, its proven ability to bring true innovation to the table, as well as delivering consistent first-class service.

The awards evening recognises Blackmores business partners who are helping them produce and deliver more premium products than ever before.

In a statement, Pact said: "In 2018 Pact look forward to experiencing continued growth with Blackmores, both locally and throughout Asia across the Pact network".

"Pact is proud to supply Blackmores with an innovative packaging range as well as nutraceutical and personal care products from our Contract Manufacturing division."
