Berry Global has been named Manufacturer of the Year (over £25m) at the Made in Central and East England Awards, which celebrate the cream of the region’s manufacturing industry, and is now a finalist for the National Awards to be announced in June.

The judges highlighted Berry's investment in an in-house recycled polypropylene solution to be used in its manufacture of plastic closures, jars, tubs and pumps for a variety of domestic and industrial applications.

Another reason for Berry’s win is the company’s ability to provide customers with short lead times and low minimum order volumes, including multi-product orders, allowing them quick access to the widest range of high-quality packaging solutions.

“Winning the Manufacturer of the Year Award is a testament to Berry Global's hard work, dedication and commitment to manufacturing processes, high quality system standards and high levels of service,” said Joe Horton, Product Line Director, Berry Agile Solutions.

Berry creates innovative packaging and engineered products that are designed to make life better for people and the planet. Using its advanced global capabilities, sustainability leadership and deep expertise to serve customers around the world, the company produces creative, innovative sustainable solutions with a circular economy in mind.

“The challenges we solve and the innovations we bring benefit our customers every step of the way, and we are proud to be recognized as experts in the packaging industry,” said Horton.

In particular, the Berry portfolio includes products from the Berry B Circular range, which feature important enhancements such as the use of recycled materials, mono-material packaging and re-fill and reuse forms to help brand owners meet sustainability goals and consumer demands, as well as complying with legislative requirements for plastic packaging.
