Sustainability will flow through every aspect of the reinstated gala awards ceremony for the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) Awards of Excellence.
The APPMA Awards of Excellence is returning to be part of AUSPACK 2019.
It recognises industry innovation and outstanding performers in the packaging and processing sectors.
The awards, which are part of Packaging and Processing Week 2019, include five award categories: Best New Product, Customer Collaboration Award, Design Innovation Award, Export Success Award and Imported Equipment Award.
Keeping in theme with the week, the awards evening will use sustainable materials such as recycled copper used for the table centrepiece decorations, and low-energy LED lighting.
The menu will be designed in partnership with Yume, rescuing top-quality, brand-name surplus food that may have otherwise been discarded.
AUSPACK will be held from 26-29 March, in Melbourne. The Awards of Excellence will be held on March 27.
