On the occasion of the 2017 PIDA awards, held at Auspack last week, the Australian Institute of Packaging welcomed a new fellow to the ranks - Nina Cleeve Edwards.

 

The grade of Fellow is the highest recognition awarded to AIP members, and is for significant, outstanding and sustained contribution to the technology, science or application to packaging and the field in which the recipient works.

 

PKN joins the AIP Board in congratulating Nina on receiving her Fellowship.

 

It came as little surprise to the PKN team that Nina was awarded this high accolade. Having worked with Nina over the last few years, and most recently when she presented at our LIVE conference last year where she was one of the highest rated speakers, we have come to know her as a packaging and food industry professional who is highly regarded by her colleagues and industry peers, approaches her role with energy and enthusiasm, and continues to work earnestly towards furthering the interests of the industry as a whole.

 

Nina was also the joint winner of the 2017 PIDA Young Packaging & Processing Professional of the Year Award.

 

In her current role at Nestlé Australia, she is the manager of the Oceania innovation acceleration team.

She is an AIP Diploma in Packaging Technology graduate and was the second recipient of the Certified Packaging Professional designation in Australasia.

She has also been awarded a Harry Lovell Award and has contributed the eco-design tool PIQET, which she successfully rolled out in Nestlé to more than 500 packaging technologists across the globe.
