Amcor Flexibles is proud to announce that it has been recognised for excellence in flexography by the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA). It is the first time our plant in Palmela (Lisbon) has entered the competition so winning a Silver Award in the ‘Flexible Packaging Outside the UK’ category is a great result for the team. The award was received at the European Flexographic Industry Association annual ceremony in Bolton (England). From right to left: Francisco Cheira, Plant Manager, José Dias (member of printing team) and Yves Darbos, Pre-Press Manager, all from Amcor Flexibles Palmela in Lisbon.
"We entered a design that Amcor Flexibles Palmela prints for our customer Hijos de Salvador Rodríguez S.A., a prominent cheese producer in Spain. The El Pastor de la Povorosa cheese has a beautiful visual which is technically challenging to print. The photograph of the cheese needs to stand out on shelf and look highly appetising", said Gisela de la Viña, Sales Executive at Amcor Flexibles Europe & Americas.
"This has been achieved through complex seven colour flexo printing which highlights the cheese food values and a perfect vignette in the background running smoothly from dark to light across the pack. The cheese really ‘pops out’ to perfection", said Yves Darbos, Pre-Press Manager at Amcor Flexibles Palmela.
"We are delighted Amcor Flexibles has received this award. The team at Amcor Flexibles Palmela prints the packaging with the same level of care and attention as we do when making our cheese!" said Salvador Rodríguez, Co-Owner and Product Manager, Hijos de Salvador Rodríguez S.A. "We expect the best from our suppliers and are very happy with the relationship with Amcor Flexibles Palmela."
The results were disclosed on 21st March, 2013, during the annual EFIA Print Award ceremony in Bolton, England.
