We are pleased to announce that Anne Dallison, Technical Director of Design Cognition, has just been elected as Fellow of the Institute of Packaging, The Packaging Society – part of IOM3 (The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, enabling her to use the letters ‘F.Inst.Pkg’ after her name.
This is a fantastic achievement for Annie, who has worked in the packaging industry for over 25 years, in a number of packaging-related roles. Over the years she has played a proactive role in all of the companies for whom she has worked, extolling the importance of packaging for the success of brands and products. She has also taken a special interest in the changes and impact of the ever-growing demands of legislative and regulatory requirements affecting the Packaging Industry. Her work to minimise the impact of these requirements for the brand image and product appearance has been tireless, whilst at the same time developing robust processes for the application of the changes when necessary.
For many years she has been an active member of Institute of Packaging Pharmaceutical Forum (cross-company common interest group) and is representing this group on the BSI and also European CEN Braille Forum. She is also a member of the Pharmaceutical Quality Forum and is involved in the working group for “the development of PS 9000 Pharmaceutical Packaging Materials”.
On top of all of this, on a number of occasions, she has received Star Pack and World Star awards for packaging that she has developed along with European and global patents.
Well done Annie – keep up the good work!
