For the second consecutive year, Eco Flexibles has emerged victorious at the prestigious Whitworths Supplier Conference, with the UK-based sustainable flexible packaging specialist clinching a Solutions Award for the second year running.
The win follows Eco Flexibles’ support on delivering over 150 new SKUs for Whitworths and customer, Holland & Barrett. Resulting in a fully recyclable monopolymer structure, the project was notable for tight turnaround lead times, a high quantity of product SKUs and comprehensive Eco Flexibles support from artwork creation and platemaking, through to film production and delivery.
Whitworths, a renowned brand specialising in dried fruit, nuts, home baking, and snack products, hosts its annual conference to share its vision, values, and strategy with suppliers while recognising exceptional supply chain partners who have consistently exceeded expectations.
Simon Buswell, Director at Eco Flexibles, said: “We are honoured to have been recognised with a Solutions Award for the second consecutive year. It’s a tremendous achievement for our team, and a fantastic example of why our business is expanding at such speed. Whitworths is an exceptional client that prioritises delivering innovation and outstanding value to its customers, and we were delighted to help deliver success on this project.”
