Spear named Lion’s Best Packaging Supplier

June 2, 2014

Spear has been presented with Lion’s award for Best Supplier in the Packaging category, which includes all of Lion’s packaging for beer, wine and food.

Lion is a leading beverage and food company with a portfolio that includes many of Australia and New Zealand’s popular brands.
The company’s annual supplier recognition dinner took place in March with 75 of Lion’s key suppliers attending the evening’s events in Sydney. Every one of Lion’s strategic suppliers was assessed as part of the awards process. The evaluation for Best Supplier is based on quality, service and on time deliveries. Spear has supplied Lion with pressure sensitive labels since October 2011 and is a previous winner of this award.

“It is always a pleasure and honor to be invited to the Lion Supplier Recognition Dinner,” says Andre Schell, Spear, key account director, Asia-Pacific. “At Spear, we pride ourselves on being a dedicated partner and, in turn, we are treated as part of the ‘family’ and part of Lion’s success story. To then be presented with the award Best in Category Packaging is the icing on the cake and is valued recognition of the team’s hard work and commitment.”
