Note to editor
The Horners’ Award is an annual award for an imaginative or innovative contribution to the plastics industry. The Worshipful Company of Horners’ was founded to set and maintain standards in the ancient craft of the Horner.
After it had 'adopted' plastics, the company introduced an award to encourage good design in plastics, these materials being the logical successor to the horn.
The Horners’ Award is jointly organised by the Worshipful Company of Horners', a City Livery Company, and The British Plastics Federation (BPF).
The British Plastics Federation (BPF) is the UK trade association for the plastics industry – representing the whole supply chain including polymer producers, distributors, additives suppliers, machinery manufacturers, processors and recyclers.
