Graphic Packaging International’s (Graphic Packaging) manufacturing facility in Poznań, Poland has been awarded a coveted Grooming Excellence Award by Procter and Gamble (P&G) in recognition of going “above and beyond in delivering value” to their business.
The award was presented to members of the Poznań team in early November, acknowledging the company’s success and strength as a strategic supplier of packaging solutions for P&G’s grooming portfolio. P&G describe the Grooming Excellence Awards as celebrating the very best of its partnerships and the integral members of its supply ecosystem. Winners are selected from the ranks of more than 50,000 business partners.
Svetlana Kurianova, Head of Sales, Beauty at Graphic Packaging said: “This is a superb accolade for the Poznań team. We have partnered with P&G for more than 25 years, creating stand-out, eye-catching packaging solutions for its grooming products.
The success of this collaboration comes down to our ability to work closely with customers, to deeply understand what it is they want and need from their packaging, while also demonstrating our expertise in packaging innovation by challenging what is believed to be the limits of what is possible.
“Furthermore, we are committed to creating and supporting flexible, reliable and resilient supply chains that make doing business together more efficient and seamless, something which is now more important than ever.”
P&G began recognising its business partners in 2008 as part of its External Business Partner Performance Development Process (PDP). The programme was established to define, measure and collaboratively enhance the performance of its partners to exceed business needs and enhance relationships. The Grooming Excellence Awards form part of P&G’s External Business Partner of the Year Awards.
