Leading European packaging manufacturer Coveris has been recognised by the European Flexographic Industry Association in the EFIA Awards 2020. Celebrating excellence in the flexographic print industry, Coveris was awarded Gold in the ‘Technical Innovation – Printer’ category. Coveris was also the recipient of a Silver, two Bronze and two Highly Commended awards in a successful evening for the company.

The prestigious EFIA Awards provide an opportunity to showcase quality, innovation and technical development in flexographic print. Following the postponement of the awards ceremony due to take place in March, award winners were announced on Thursday 17th September in a virtual ceremony.
