“Irwin packaging is committed to giving back to the communities on which our growth depends.”
As well as supporting Bowel Cancer Awareness, we encourage our employees to support their own causes and charities and provide support financially, in-kind and with time off where possible.
Bowel Cancer Awareness
Irwin Packaging are proud supporters of Bowel Cancer Australia which since its launch in 2000 has become a leading national charity in bowel cancer and digestive health education and research. It aims to decrease the impact of bowel cancer and gastrointestinal diseases in our society through awareness, education, support and research. Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age with 73 people dying every week from the disease. 1 in 12 of us will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.
Bowel Cancer Australia operates a number of national initiatives including Bowel Cancer Awareness Week TM, Red Apple Day, the It’s Crunch Time TM and ‘Love My Family’ campaigns and our Health in the Workplace Program.
Bowel Cancer Australia supports the Australian Government’s National Bowel Cancer Screening Program and encourages participation by all Australians in appropriate screening for bowel cancer. For more information visit www.bowelcanceraustralia.org/bca/
Southern Cross Packaging Design Awards
Irwin Packaging has been supporting the Southern Cross Design Awards for the last 20 years. John Irwin has provided his expertise and support to any applicant who wishes to obtain any detailed manufacturing information.
The Southern Cross Design Awards are a national packaging competition aimed at tertiary students studying design at Universities, TAFE’s and Private Colleges. Students are provided with briefs, developed by the sponsors, and are required to produce innovative solutions to packaging design.
To encourage innovation in steel packaging the CMIA works closely with the Packaging Covenant of Australia and each year sponsors an award for design students for innovation in steel packaging. The award goes to the student who develops a packaging solution that meets local legislative requirements and provides improved functionality and presentation.

Cystic Fibrosis Awareness
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has no cure.
2 million Australians carry the CF gene and in the event that two gene carries marry there is a 1:4 chance a CF child will be born. Please watch the video for a better understanding of this incurable disease in the link below.
Irwin Packaging were proud to be a sponsor of the 2010 /11 Australian Seniors Open held at Killara Gold Club in Sydney. This prestigious golf event has tied itself to CF with over $70,000 being raised to aid in research and medical support for kids who will die before their parents.

We are proud to have loyal and supportive customers whom we pride ourselves on providing packaging to suit all of their needs.
“Irwin Packaging always responds quickly to my packaging needs, in light of a quick product launch I was able to obtain all of the packaging assistance I required with no fuss or stress”
