Alcoa Flexible Packaging Shrink Sleeve Wins Best of Show Award at PLGA Annual Meeting!

RICHMOND, Va.--Recently, at the Packaging & Label Gravure Association's 10th Annual Operational Conference, Alcoa Flexible Packaging was again recognized for premium print quality by receiving "Best of Show" for its Neilson’s The Ultimate Chocolate Milk™ 1 liter bottle shrink sleeve. Not only did the Alcoa shrink sleeve win the top award in its label category, it then contended with the best entries among 30-plus different product categories for "Best of Show".

Another outstanding example of the fine quality rotogravure printing from Alcoa Flexible Packaging, the reverse printed 50 micron PET shrink sleeve label utilizes 7 colors to produce a label that appears drenched in chocolate milk. The photo realistic graphics of luscious chocolate milk being poured into a translucent glass with condensation droplets captures consumers' attention, inviting them to drink and enjoy.

This is the 7th award Alcoa Flexible Packaging has received in the past twelve months for its shrink sleeves. Alcoa shrink sleeves are produced at the Alcoa Downingtown Packaging Plant in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
