VI Packaging are proud to be one of the 15 Australian businesses that have been announced as finalists for the 2018 Wine Industry IMPACT Awards. The Wine Industry IMPACT Awards recognise the success that is earned through collaboration at all levels of the value chain.
Wine Industry Suppliers Australia Inc. (WISA) in conjunction with their event partners will host the awards on the 18th October, at the prestigious Adelaide Town Hall. The event will also play host to the main annual fundraising activities towards WISA’s official charity partner the Leukaemia Foundation.
Awards will be presented across categories including grapegrowing, winemaking, engineering, packaging, distribution and logistics, marketing and communications, tourism and a new start-up category. The finalists must demonstrate the impact of value-added benefits achieved through collaborative engagement between wine producers and their value chain partners, while developing exciting new consumer experiences.
To become a nominee VI Packaging provided evidence of our positive impact and contribution to the capability and competitiveness of the Australian Wine community. Areas of impact were:

We were honoured to be chosen as one of just two finalists in the Packaging category. WISA have summarised our application stating:
