PepsiCo Honors Power Packaging With Copacker Above And Beyond Award

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Power Packaging, an Exel company, has received the Copacker Above and Beyond Award for Innovation and Productivity from its customer, PepsiCo. The award singles out Power Packaging, one of 64 PepsiCo copackers, for consistently providing significant value through the most innovative product and packaging solutions while delivering outstanding production results.

PepsiCo and Power Packaging have a strong history of working together on dry and liquid production dating back to the mid-1980s, including being the source of important innovation launches such as Tropicana 10oz, G2 and Propel® powders, and several packaging innovations. Today, Power Packaging supports PepsiCo at all three of its multi-customer dry facilities as the only copacker for the entire line of G, G2, Propel® and G Series Pro powders.

"We are pleased to recognize Power Packaging with our Above and Beyond Award," said Art W. Lawrence, vice president of contract manufacturing at PepsiCo. "The Power Packaging team dedicates itself to our success every day. As a partner, Power has helped us remain a leading innovator in the competitive beverage market. We greatly value the team's tireless commitment and ability to consistently deliver creativity, productivity and superior performance."

PepsiCo will present the award to Power Packaging at its facility in Grand Prairie, Texas, on Tuesday, April 24.
