There was yet more success for Tri-Label Online, Tri-Star’s cloud-based labelling software solution for the food-to-go sector, which won Gold in the New Product Awards at ScotHot 2015 in Glasgow on 4 March. Tri-Label Online beat off competition from 10 other companies. Food industry expert Jane Milton tweeted that she and her fellow judges had “loved how it would help businesses of all sizes”.

A day later, at the Foodservice Packaging Association’s Awards held at Brighton’s Grand Hotel, Tri-Star was voted National Distributor of the Year by the FPA’s manufacturing members.

Kevin Curran, managing director of Tri-Star, said: “Winning National Distributor of the Year at the FPA awards is a fantastic achievement because it’s the companies we work with who decide who wins it. We faced competition from some really big operators in this category, but as an independent packaging distributor I believe we offer a more personal and tailored service than the big brown box movers can, and this award endorses that approach.”

He joked: “We’ve won so much recently that if this was Las Vegas we’d be banned from every casino in town by now! Seriously, though, our continued success in awards schemes is just a reflection of the focus we put on bringing to market packaging innovations that make a real and tangible difference to food-to-go businesses of all types.”

Tri-Label Online has now won a total of five industry awards since it was launched just over a year ago. The system offers businesses an easy way to create and produce great-looking labels from any PC and printer using a ground-breaking cloud-based labelling software package.

Kevin added: “We’re immensely proud of our successful record of winning industry awards and I’ve got bad news for our competitors – there’s still plenty of space left in our office for more trophies and we have every intention of filling it!”
