At its annual Excellence Awards ceremony, Premier Foods bestowed Supplier Innovation of the Year honors upon Alexir Partnership, a UK-based packaging company.

The Alexir Partnership received “highly commended” designation in the category. Out of approximately 3,000 suppliers eligible for the award, only three companies received honors.

Productive packaging partnership

Tom Sene, sales director for the Alexir Partnership, said this year’s Excellence Awards mark the first time the company has honored its suppliers. He added that the packaging company was honored because of its innovative products, and its effectiveness in bringing teams together to get solid results.

It demonstrates how the four arms of the business work together to genuinely add value and sell a unique service​,” he said.

The packaging firm has been working with the teams at Premier Foods for five years. Since they first partnered, the company has developed a number of new, creative formats.

Timely results

According to a Premier Foods representative, the Alexir Partnership has delivered satisfying, appealing work on time, sometimes up against tight deadlines, thanks to a broad range of services.

In bringing the products to market we have made use of the full range of services that the Alexir Partnership has available in order to facilitate the process of bringing the products efficiently to market from marketing brief through design, development, production and on-going supply to our retail customers​,” he said.

Product and packaging development efforts by the two companies have landed awards before. In Sept. 2012, the British Print Industries Federation gave a BPIF Excellence Award in Innovation for the Batchelors pot snacks Deli Box. The container combines ability to be packed speedily on production lines, ability to hold boiling water, and stand-out appearance on the shelf.
