Australia’s leading wine packaging, warehousing & distribution company, Portavin has consistently set industry standards for excellence since its establishment in Margaret River in 1989. From very small beginnings, Portavin now operates five sites across Australia.

Through continued innovation  and packaging initiatives, Portavin has been recognised by the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) as the 2015 award winner for highest scoring organisation in the “Small – Medium Packaging Manufacturer” category.

The Australian Packaging Covenant is a sustainable packaging initiative which aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter.

Portavin has been a signatory of the APC since 2010 and this year proudly accepted the award at the presentation dinner in Melbourne on 30 July, 2015.

This award follows closely their recent Service Excellence Award from DHL and Qantas, firmly cementing Portavin is a leader in the packaging industry.

Portavin’s Executive Chairman, Mike Davies said that the award is great recognition of the many years of hard work that has been put into creating a culture that is truly focussed on sustainable packaging.

Improvements in helping the environment make it all worthwhile. This award is gratefully accepted as it rewards the team for all their hard work in this area,” said Mike.

“We have great people across our Portavin locations and special thanks needs to be given to the whole team for embracing our vision and helping to implement the systems and practices for us to lead in this arena,” he said.

Mike also congratulated CA Henschke & CO, Pernod Ricard Winemakers and OI for success in their respective divisions and showing that the Wine Industry is a leader in the principles of sustainable packaging.
