Afripack Consumer Flexibles (ACF) won the prestigious Winning Partnership award at the recent Tiger Brands Snacks & Treats Supplier awards event.

Afripack Consumer Flexibles hits a high note, receiving the Winning Partnership Award 2010 from Tiger Brands Snacks
& Treats. KAREN STRETCH discovers the secret to its success.

AT the recent Tiger Brands Snacks & Treats (TBST) Supplier Awards event, Afripack Consumer Flexibles (ACF) was awarded the prestigious Winning Partnership Award 2010. The annual function honours suppliers whom TBST believes have made valuable contributions to its business.‘The Winning Partnership award recognises a supplier’s skill to make a difference by creating collaborative win-win partnerships,’ explains Umashani Naidoo, Beacon procurement manager: packaging. Afripack’s ability to embrace a challenge and turn it into a winning formula, thus realising benefits for both parties, is commendable.’

ACF’s award comes in the wake of the successful packaging relaunch of the Beacon’s 45g, 100g and 200g chocolate slabs.
We’re very proud of this latest success,’ enthuses Tyrone Voller, ACF Flexibles marketing manager. Considering our short history, it’s a wonderful achievement and an equally wonderful message to be sending to our market. We can only grow from here.’ He’s referring to the fact that it’s just one year since Afripack purchased most of Astrapak’s Flexibles division, which propelled Afripack into South Africa’s highly competitive consumer flexible packaging industry (Supplement PPM, Sept09).

In that short space of time, significant investments have been made in the best technology and the right people, and ACF has been transformed into one cohesive business with a tight-knit team. Derek Huntley, Afripack exco member, has worked
closely with Beacon for many years and understands the importance of teamwork and close collaboration. Having experienced the transition from Astraflex to ACF, and having great belief in Afripack’s ‘Sisonke’ culture, as well as the role this plays in the market place, he’s convinced that a major factor in ACF’s success has been the ability to understand customers’ brands and to develop suitable packaging solutions. ‘Beacon has an exceptionally strong set of values and work principles; and much of our success comes from realising those values and developing synergies,’ Derek explains.

For Beacon, communication and integrity are the cornerstones of any relationship and building a winning partnership means finding suppliers who share the company’s values and are prepared to embrace challenges along the way. ‘The category team at Beacon was adamant and uncompromising when it came to quality requirements for the relaunch,’ Derek continues. ‘Once we understood the brief and focused on achieving common goals, it worked incredibly well.’ Nosi Shoniwa, Beacon’s senior brand manager: chocolates and occasions, who worked on the project but has subsequently moved on, explains the
rationale behind the project: ‘We made some decisive step-changes to relaunch our range of chocolate slabs, choosing a metallised finish to “shine” above other brands on-shelf. What really stood us in good stead during the entire process were open lines of communication.’

Hi I have tried sending you a message from your site but I have gotten an auto response saying it was not delivered for some bizarre reason, so here goes again! Please acknowledge receipt. As I mentioned in my earlier message, I would like to contribute one of my guides on crypto-backed loans to your blog. I used to work for a payday loan company in the UK and so I have quite a good knowledge of the financial lending sector. I decided to write this guide because I feel that cryptocurrency will have a major impact on the payday loan industry in the next 5 to 10 years. I have tried to be as detailed as possible so you will find that the guide is fairly lengthy. Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to split it up into several blog posts or do as you see fit. I am terribly sorry but I did not have much time to find royalty free images. One company that I contacted whilst doing research and collecting references for this guide did give me permission to publish on of their banners that I have included in the g-drive folder. The entire guide is saved in a Word document inside my Google drive which you can access via this link I hope your readers will enjoy reading my guide. I would be most grateful if you could send me a link to the guide once you have published it! I will endeavour to write a couple more articles as and when I get some more free time: it is hell at work after the festive period. Have a fab day. Regards Tony
