CMI & PDQ Win 2018 FPI Packaging of the Year

CMI Pack and PDQ’s packaging suite won Foodservice Packaging Institute’s Foodservice Package of the Year Award for Excellence.

“Using packaging designed and manufactured by CMI Pack, PDQ’s packaging expressed big, bold styles highlighting their color palette, messaging and graphics specific to their brand.”

PDQ’s packaging suite won Foodservice Package of the Year for Excellence. Using packaging designed and manufactured by CMI Pack, graphics with big, bold styles highlighted PDQ’s color palette, messaging and graphics to tell its brand story. Judges felt the different pieces created a cohesive packaging message while using every available print surface — even the inside flaps — for witty content that promotes social media engagement.

For 17 years, the trade association and trade publication have partnered in these bi-annual awards to recognize innovation in the foodservice packaging industry. Almost all of this year’s entries reflected growing trends in both the packaging and restaurant industries, including tamper-evident products and interest in molded fiber products.
