Starpack Industry Awards

For 60 years, the Starpack Awards have celebrated excellence in packaging and the fantastic work being done in process development and engineering, focusing on innovation and recognition of personal as well as corporate achievement. Successful innovation is so often the result of collaboration between skilled individuals, and is the outcome of combined skills and the way these work together to complete a project that delivers real innovation.   As an organisation that aims to further professional development, IOM3 recognises these individuals in its Starpack competition.
