Two print images – two awards: Double success for SÜDPACK Grootegast at the EFTA-Benelux Flexo Awards 2023: In the category “Flexo print on foil / wide” SÜDPACK won Gold. The team who attended the event collected the Silver Award in the category “Flexo print on foil / medium”.
This year SÜDPACK has continued its series of award wins. After the Lean & Green Award, two German Packaging Awards, and places in the innovation and sustainability rankings of the economic journal WirtschaftsWoche, the company has now added two further important accolades to its list.
The EFTA Awards are awarded annually for outstanding solutions in flexo printing. A jury consisting of members with technical expertise, private label owners and marketing experts judges the print images submitted anonymously in various categories. The two SÜDPACK solutions impressed the experts in particular with the overall accomplished workmanship manifested in consistent pressure points, excellent color gradients, beautiful pastel colors in the design and last but not least clearly visible details.
Sales Manager Henk Edzes and Jan Jitse Dalmolen, Manager PrePress at SÜDPACK Grootegast attended the presentation event in the Antwerp Hilton Hotel on November 9, where they were delighted to receive the two prizes. “This success is an impressive confirmation that we belong to the best in the business,” stated Henk Edzes.
