Berry Plastics Group Inc. recently announced it has received multiple awards from two of its key customers, Yum! Brands and Hormel Foods Corp.

“At Berry Plastics, we are committed to partnering with our customers to gain in-depth insight of their brand and their consumers’ characteristics,” said Bill Norman, president, Rigid Open Top Division. “We then apply this knowledge to our design process so that we can consistently be a solutions provider to our customers.”

Yum! Brands recognized Berry Plastics with three separate Supplier Tracking Assessment and Recognition (STAR) awards. All three awards were related to the KFC Go Cup package, launched in July 2013, which Berry Plastics collaboratively designed and developed.

Hormel Foods gave Berry Plastics its Spirit of Excellence Award in recognition of Berry Plastics’ highest levels of quality, delivery, service, and support related to its product packaging, including: Farmer John, Kids Kitchen, La Victoria, Chi Chi’s Salsa, Wholly Guacamole, Jennie-O, and Skippy Peanut Butter. To qualify for this award, Berry Plastics maintained a supplier rating index score of 92 or higher over a 12-month period. This score was achieved by meeting performance requirements, making on-time deliveries, and providing high-level customer support.
