American Packaging Corporation (APC), a leader in flexible packaging solutions, was presented two 2024 Excellence in Flexography awards by the Flexographic Technical Association. The Excellence in Flexography Awards recognize exemplary package printing. Each of the hundreds of entries received every year is individually evaluated by a panel of judges on its degree of difficulty and level of execution. 

For the Excellence in Flexography for the Wide Web, Line, Film category, Kodiak Peak Banana Nut Oatmeal Pouch won the silver award with judges commenting, "This is a cleanly and sharply printed sample. The printer overcame Kraft stock with good color reproduction." Honest Organic Gummies Pouch won the bronze award in the same category, with judges stating, "This print sample's text was crisp and the print was clean. Well executed!"
