Held annually, the awards recognise excellence in business, with the Export Business of the Year award celebrating the strength and growth of international businesses that have demonstrated significant, sustained increases in their export and/or import activity. 

KM Packaging delivers advanced flexible packaging solutions and expertise to food manufacturers around the globe with export sales representing 40% of its business. Core to the success of its growth in international markets is the comprehensive way in which the KM team researches, visits and supports export customers and markets.

Charles Smithson, KM Packaging Managing Director, said: “We are extremely pleased that KM Packaging has been selected as one of just three finalists for such a prestigious award.

“It is very gratifying to have our efforts in expanding the company’s global export sales recognised. It is testament to the hard work of the KM Packaging team in building strong, long-term customer relationships wherever in the world our customers may be.”

The final stage of the comprehensive multi-phase judging process for the category took place on June 29 when KM Packaging gave a twenty-minute presentation detailing their successes on the international stage. There was also a question and answer session with the judging panel. 

The awards will be presented at a dinner on September 13 at the Park Inn, Northampton. Being shortlisted also puts KM Packaging in contention for the award’s overall prize for Business of the Year.

Catch-22 of the Plastic Packaging Tax

The UK Government’s imminent Plastic Packaging Tax has created a frustrating Catch-22. The problem is that, for trays containing food intended to be heated with the lid kept on, it is not currently possible to produce a heat-sealable lidding film made with a recycled material approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).

A Reflection on KM Packaging

Former KM Packaging employee Sara Athey retired back in December having worked for the company for almost 30 years. Throughout her career as part of KM Packaging’s Customer Service Team, Sara was pivotal in laying the very foundations of the business. She formed an essential part of the company's success, contributing to its ethos, handling global logistics and acting as customers’ key point of contact. Here, Sara reflects on her time with the company and describes the changes over the years.

Established in the UK in 1984 by founders Mark Ormrod and Keith Jeffs to deliver flexible packaging solutions to the confectionery market in North America and the Middle East, exporting is in KM Packaging’s DNA.

The deepest location on Earth was reached by Hollywood director James Cameron in a specially designed submarine in 2012. His exploration of the Mariana Trench, in the Pacific Ocean, was as remarkable as scenes from some of his own blockbuster movies.

Cameron and his team worked at a depth of some 11,034 metres, which is equivalent to the height of 2519 stacked double-decker buses, or more than eight times that of Ben Nevis. And their craft had to withstand water pressure of more than eight tons per square inch or about 1000 times the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level.
