BioBased Lid Wins UK Product Innovation Award

Huhtamaki’s Future Smart™ Duo Lid won the Product Innovation Award for front of house at the prestigious UK Foodservice Packaging Awards last Thursday. 

Some 350 FPA members and their guests enjoyed a splendid evening at The Grand Hotel Brighton on 5 March.

Celebrity guest Patrick Monahan proved an excellent host and entertainer, along with the superb singing waiters and waitress, whilst the winners justly celebrated their success.

The spirit of the event was reflected in the generosity of guests in supporting charity WasteAid in almost doubling what the FPA has raised so far.

Outgoing Chairman Howard Colliver was given a special award and thanked for his tireless and enthusiastic work for the FPA over the past five years.

New Chairman Mark Pawsey MP was welcomed to the FPA.
