UK Packaging Awards – Granby shortlisted
We’re pleased to again be shortlisted for an award that’s close to our hearts. Granby is lining up to take the award for Co-Pack & Fulfilment Company of the Year at the UK Packaging Awards 2022!
This is such a competitive category in this industry-leading event, so it’s brilliant that we’re on the shortlist again. Last year, we were highly commended, and we outright won the award the two years prior to that (2019 and 2020).
Granby’s Managing Director Joanne Kimber said: “It’s going to be a tense evening. We’ve been proud to win this award previously – two years in a row, followed by a highly commended. The competition is fierce!
“An awful lot of hard work has gone into keeping Granby among the leaders in our sector. Everyone who works for the business has helped get us here. That we’ve been shortlisted again for this prestigious award is testament to their efforts.
“For instance, in the last year, we’ve created many new jobs in our local community. On the tech side, we’ve rolled out enhancements to our fulfilment system so our clients can have even more clarity on their stock.”
“Our impact on the environment and use of resources is important to us. We’ve researched and invested in sustainable replacements for single use plastics – for example, bubble wrap is banned and we use paper tape.”
“Our impact on the environment and use of resources is important to us. We’ve researched and invested in sustainable replacements for single use plastics – for example, bubble wrap is banned and we use paper tape. Also, Granby was awarded a rare EcoVardis Gold Standard for our approach to sustainability.
“We continued to invest in professional certifications too. I’m pleased to say that ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices, which we’d got our eye on at the time of our application for this award – has now been achieved!”
The organiser of the UK Packaging Awards is Packaging News, a leading trade publication for the packaging supply chain.
The Co-Pack & Fulfilment Company of the Year category is sponsored by BCMPA, the Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics.
Entries for all 26 categories were assessed and the shortlists selected by industry experts. This included representatives of some of the UK’s biggest and most well-known brands, including Nestlé, Waitrose, Tesco and Premier Foods, and judges from industry bodies – including the Packaging Federation, the MPMA, the Foodservice Packaging Association and INCPEN.
We’ll be heading to the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Wednesday 19th October for the UK Packaging Awards Presentation Dinner, where the winners will be announced.
Earlier this year, Granby’s finance team was ‘highly commended’ at the 2022 Finance Awards North West for demonstrating ‘excellence in the field’.
And this month (September), we attended an exclusive breakfast event with 99 other SMEs who made it to the Hot 100, compiled by Lancashire Business View. Granby made the list for the first time, taking a seat at Number 94.
