Charpak Ltd News and PR from Charpak Ltd - Published 11 April 2019 Charpak Ltd were crowned Winners of the SME of the Year at the prestigious UK Packaging Awards on Tuesday 30th October 2018.
Selected by the judges at the packaging industry's national awards ceremony the judges recognised the Huntingdon-based company for ''taking an honest approach to plastic concerns and valuing plastic as a raw material.''

The judges commended the company for ''consistently punching above its weight, delivering great looking packaging (and providing) an excellent Q&A section.''

All Charpak's clear and black PET packaging is not only manufactured from recycled plastics, with up to 90% of the raw material being recycled rPET their products are reusable and recyclable. Minimising environmental impact and using recycled plastics in the manufacture of products must be the way forward for the industry, making all materials a resource rather than waste, and keeping it out of the ocean.

Paul Smith, Managing Director was delighted to accept the Award on behalf of the company taking the opportunity to share the companyÂ’s proactive approach: ''With plastics pollution being negatively portrayed we must also remember the advantages that plastic gives us as a material used throughout innovation in technology, telecoms, transport and medical and healthcare developments, to name just a few.

As with other materials plastic can be recycled and reused in new products - we do it every day. Our commitment is to manufacture packaging from recycled plastics and we encourage other businesses to work towards a more sustainable future by following our lead in reusing and remanufacturing from existing resources.''

Sales & Innovation Director Justin Kempson added: ''We are delighted to be recognised by the industry for the commitments we make as a UK independently owned SME exploring innovations in materials, technology and design. There are a number of development projects underway, so watch this space.''

Looking forward to 2019 and beyond Charpak continues its drive forward in designing and delivering recyclable packaging across their existing core markets and expanding into new markets.
