Sealed Air in India was conferred with the prestigious Porter Prize for Creating Distinctive Value by the Institute for Competitiveness (IFC) in India at an award ceremony held on October 11, 2013 at Mumbai. The award category recognizes companies for offering unique solutions to the problems or needs of the customer, the strategic acumen of top Indian companies and the positive impact they are making on the performance of the overall industry.
“Sealed Air’s vision is to create a better way for life and our mission is to re-imagine the ways we serve our industries by combining ingenious ideas and diverse expertise. We are honoured to receive the Porter Prize which supports exactly what we believe in — the need to constantly re-think and transform sustainable solutions into business changing results,” said Yagmur Sagnak, President-Asia, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Sealed Air.
“India is a key market for Sealed Air and our strategy has always been to offer differentiating and unique value to customers. Our position as a total solutions provider is definitely a competitive advantage but just as important is the ability to deliver equally on performance, cost competitiveness and sustainability. Innovation is key and we are committed to developing the market by continuously partnering with customers to raise industry standards and awareness,” said Himanshu Jain, Vice President for Indian Subcontinent, Sealed Air. This is the second award on strategy that Sealed Air has received from IFC in India. Last year, it was presented with the IFC Mint Strategy Award at the inaugural launch of the Porter Prize Awards.
