2013 ECR House & Garden Show Gold Award

Pakco was presented with a Gold Award for its stand display at the East Cost Radio & Garden Show in 2013. Exhibitors were judged on their displays, crowd interaction and popularity of the products sampled.

Pakco was a finalist in the 2013 Gold Pack Awards for the new packaging on its range of sauces.

The need for a packaging update was identified and new designs were inspired by the sauces’ unique flavours, their delicate blend of spices, quality ingredients, and Pakco’s tradition of quality. The result was a fresh, new “Authentically Indian” look and feel that looks as good as its contents taste, with square bottles and vibrant colours that are very much on-trend.
