Eco Flexibles wins Solutions Award at Whitworth’s Supplier Conference

UK headquartered sustainable flexible packaging business, Eco Flexibles, has achieved three finalist places and an award win at the recent Whitworths Supplier Conference.

Whitworths, a dried fruit, nuts, home baking and snack products brand, established in 1886 and based in Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire, UK, runs an annual conference event to share its vision, values, and strategy with its suppliers, as well as recognise those partners who have delivered over and above for the business. Eco Flexibles was a finalist in three categories of their STAR Awards, including Supplier of the Year, where it was the only packaging company to be nominated, and went on to win the overall Solutions Award for 2022.

Simon Buswell, Sales and Marketing Director at Eco Flexibles, said: “This is a great win for our team. Whitworths is a fantastic client that is truly focused on delivering for its customers. Its core values of Solutions, Teamwork, Accountability and Respect are very much aligned to our own.

”Our relationship has built steadily over the past two years with our team building out a portfolio of new lightweight and fully recyclable flexible packaging designs for their home baking and snack ranges. This award is testament to the commitment we’ve made to the account and the successful business model we’re operating in the UK.”

Olivier Orphelin, Director of Procurement at Whitworths commented: “The Eco Flexibles team have been amazing in supporting us, launching a number of innovations when the market and supply chain has been very difficult. They provided us with forward thinking solutions to get around a number of challenges we were experiencing, and we have really appreciated their support.”
