This year’s Cirque du tna diamond announced


Global packaging solutions specialist, tna, has announced the winner of its 30th anniversary competition at a theme-gala, entitled Cirque du tna, at this year’s PackExpo exhibition in Chicago. The lucky recipient of the $5 000 (AUD) diamond was revealed by tna co-founder Alf Taylor as Jeff Miller from Bremner Food Group.

Nine month countdown

The culmination of a year of anniversary celebrations and designed as a special thank you to its customers, suppliers and staff, the diamond competition was a cross-platform event with entrants needing to build up points to increase their number of entries into a final prize draw for the diamond. Entrants built up points by taking part in a variety of tasks, quizzes and activities during the nine-month long contest. Competitions ranged from ‘Find the Diamond’ on Twitter, whereby entrants used a series of cryptic clues to decipher the diamond’s whereabouts around the globe, to photo caption contests on Facebook and other spot prizes.

Commenting on the company’s milestone anniversary, Taylor states that ‘the packaging industry has changed a great deal since we founded tna 30 years ago. Although the company has also evolved over the years, from innovators of the first VFFS bagging systems, to a fully integrated, global packaging solutions provider, our core principles and our vision to provide the ultimate in food packaging solutions everywhere, remain the same.

‘We are delighted to be able to share our 30th anniversary celebrations with our customers, suppliers and staff. As a company, we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone we have collaborated with over the years and who have contributed to making the last 30 years such a success. Congratulations to Jeff Miller on winning the diamond.”
