CORRUGATED packing producer, Cepac, has been named UK Supplier of the Year to Nestle.

Cepac has provided Nestle UK with over one hundred million corrugated packs in the past three years “without a single non-conformance issue”.

The award recognises Cepac’s contribution out of more than 300 Nestle UK direct suppliers who supply into the 12 UK Nestle manufacturing sites.

Rod Ainslie, Cepac’s managing director said, “We’re absolutely delighted to be named Nestle’s top supplier ahead of such a large field of suppliers. The key to this relationship is our understanding of Nestle’s desire to create the very best packaging for their products and to set the benchmark for performance throughout the supply chain.

“Cepac was founded at the turn of the millennium to set new standards in corrugated packaging for top brands, and working closely with a world-leader such as Nestle has allowed us to pioneer many exciting new developments together.

“We’re a business rooted in technology and are constantly looking at how we can help our customers stand out through packaging development and service. We’re very proud to be at the forefront of innovation in our sector and have some exciting developments underway.

“You’re only ever as good as the people who use the technology and we invest a lot in ensuring we have great people in every area of the business. We have technologists working on the development of the most advanced materials, talented printers, operators and dedicated drivers involved in the whole process, making multiple deliveries, seven days a week, without ever dropping the ball – this award is down to the whole team.”

Cepac was founded over 16 years ago by the Dubai-based and family-owned HSA Group. It has five plants in UK.
