The Packaging Company is absolutely thrilled. We’ve won the Most Disruptive Start-Up Award at the 2107 Canada Post E-commerce Innovation Awards!

It’s a phenomenal honour to be recognized, by one of Canada’s most important organizations, as a start-up enterprise that’s disrupting the way companies view their packaging efforts. We’re big believers in the power and importance of packaging, and this award shows that we’re definitely on the right track. There’s such potential in the future of packaging and its accessibility to businesses, big and small, and we’re looking forward to being a real part of pushing it all forward.

As the date drew closer and closer to the night of the Canada Post awards, you can imagine how excited and nervous we were for what the night would hold. And, what a night it was—a wonderful and engaging gala on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 at the Sheraton Centre. Surrounded by industry leaders, fellow finalists and like-minded people full of enthusiasm for the world of e-commerce, we’ve yet to come back to Earth from such a great experience (seriously, we’re still floating—look, no feet on the ground!).

We’d like to take this time to congratulate every winner at the Canada Post awards. All the brilliant ideas, hard work and leaps of faith were worth the end results. The winners are as follows:

  • Best Omni-Channel Retailer, Large: Simons
  • Best Omni-Channel Retailer, Small: Rent frock Repeat
  • Pure Play of the Year, Large: Article
  • Pure Play of the Year, Small: Cook It
  • Best Marketing & Brand Engagement: Poppy Barley
  • Most Disruptive Start-Up: The Packaging Company (Hey, that’s us!)
  • Social Impact: Eve Kit

We’d also like to congratulate our fellow category finalists. Your endeavours are impressive, creative and industry-changing. We can’t wait to hopefully work with you in the future.

We also wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the support and faith of our customers. You’ve trusted us with the packaging needs for your businesses and proven the viability and usefulness of short-run packaging. We’re going to do all we can to be worthy of your trust, and pay it back with even better packaging supplies and custom packaging options in the future.

And last, but not least, we’d like to publicly thank our team. Your hard work, dedication and passion for this project shines through so brightly. You’ve brought us to an incredible milestone, and you’re going to take us to many, many more!

Congratulations to all our fellow Canada Post awards winners and thank you to all of our supporters. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for the worlds of packaging and e-commerce. The Packaging Company looks forward to seeing everyone again at the 2018 Canada Post E-commerce Innovation Awards!
