Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is proud to announce that it recently received top awards from three of its valued customers: NB Handy, Eastman Chemical, and Brown-Forman. The Company received the Vendor of the Year 2012 award from NB Handy, and a Supplier Excellence award from both Eastman Chemical and Brown-Forman.

“It is a tremendous honor for us to be the recipients of such a prestigious group of awards,” said Randy Hobson, Executive Vice President of Commercial Development for Berry Plastics. “As a Company, we are equally committed to providing unwavering day-to-day customer service as well as partnering with our customers for the long-term, to pursue innovation projects which will assist them in setting their product apart from the competition.”

Awards recently presented to Berry Plastics:

Award: HVAC Vendor of the Year 2012 Presented by: NB Handy Description: NB Handy’s vendor evaluation program rates vendors both objectively and subjectively on specific criteria including lead time and on-time delivery, shipping complete, quality, marketing efforts, training and sales tools, pricing, and overall customer service.

Berry Plastics has supplied Polyken HVAC tape to NB Handy for thirteen years. The Company has received this honor twice in the past three years, placing Berry Plastics among the industry’s top performers.

Award: Supplier Excellence Presented by: Eastman Chemical Description: Eastman Chemical’s Supplier Excellence award is intended for suppliers who demonstrate exceptional performance and consistency in areas such as on-time delivery, conformance to specifications, and continual improvement efforts.

“Berry Plastics has been a leader in the FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) industry for over 30 years,” said Ernie Giordano, Director of Sales and Marketing for Berry Plastics’ FIBC group. “Our FIBC business is uniquely positioned to deliver custom bulk packaging solutions to the marketplace. Our North American-based manufacturing, coupled with global sourcing capability, allows us to partner with customers such as Eastman Chemical to provide a high-quality packaging solution for their business needs.
