Sustainable flexible packaging solutions specialist, Parkside, is celebrating after news that its collaboration with award-winning tea company, Bird & Blend, has been shortlisted for a prestigious Supply Chain Excellence award.

The company’s innovative compostable packaging created for Bird & Blend’s selection of single-serve tea bags, loose tea pouches and pyramid teabags, has been selected in the sustainable materials category. The solution developed by Parkside helped Bird & Blend move its full range of tea to a fully accredited compostable packaging design, further supporting the company’s long-term sustainability goals.

Staci Bye, Sales Account Manager at Parkside, said: “Sustainability remains king in the eye of the consumer, and applying this across the supply chain is vital to align with their expectations. For Bird & Blend, moving to compostable packaging was the next step in their strategy and our work with them has been rewarded with this shortlisting.

“Packaging forms a key part of supply chain sustainability and requires new innovative solutions to ensure companies are aligning to consumer attitudes and utilising packaging that is good for the environment.”

Now in its 26th year, The Supply Chain Excellence Awards were launched to recognise and reward organisations worldwide that demonstrate excellence in their supply chain operations and are renowned for the rigour of the judging process.

Operations Director at Bird & Blend, Matt Hendon, commented: “We were highly impressed with the innovative way Parkside approached our packaging challenge. The collaborative approach ensured the packaging was perfect for our products and enhanced our sustainability credentials across the supply chain. It was extremely well-received by our customers.”
