Ultimate Digital seals success with shortlist for FlexoTech International Print & Innovations Award

We’ve done it again! 

Ultimate Digital has been shortlisted for a major industry award, this time for our digitally produced packaging for a range of hand-crafted vegetable crisps hand cooked at a small family farm in Ireland.

We have been shortlisted for the Digital Labels and Packaging Award at the FlexoTech International Print & Innovations Awards 2019 – and among some big industry names, with other finalists including Aldi, Greenall’s Gin, Dettol, Lidl, Kellogg’s, Pedigree, Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Stella Artois, Bueno, Nescafe, Muller, Milky Way Stars, M&S and Lucozade.

The nomination comes just after our digital team won a major award for a unique educational innovation – winning the Flexible Packaging Award at the 2019 HP Inkspiration Awards UK & Ireland for our innovative Kids Ink brand.

Kids Ink is a fun, interactive and educational platform that gives children the opportunity to design their own unique, reusable lunch bag using the latest Biomaster antimicrobial technology and made from 100 per cent recyclable plastic – involving the next generation in tackling today’s environmental issues.

Chris Tonge, Executive Director of the Ultimate Group, is delighted with the latest nomination for Joe’s Farm Crisps, producing authentic-style pouches to create a real rustic and natural feel for the range of wholesome crisps.

He said: “This nomination reflects the hard work and dedication of our digital team in helping businesses of all size to transform their vision for their brand into a reality.

“Being recognised as among the best in the industry shows how we are pushing the boundaries in digital print innovation.”

Utilising the latest variability capability of Ultimate Digital’s HP 20000 presses, businesses like Joe’s Farm Crisps can change designs at no extra cost. And several designs can be printed in one print run, which is perfect for small orders – and keeping up with demand for the most popular products.

The FlexoTech Awards, which highlight the great advancements made in flexo printing by recognising the best work in the industry from across the world, will be announced at a ceremony at the Royal Lancaster London on October 16.
