Emeritus Professor Harry Lovell, a food and packaging industry veteran, has been awarded an OAM in the Australia Day Honours List.

Lovell, a fellow of the Australian Institute of Packaging, has been recognised for his outstanding and significant contribution to business and commerce through the food and packaging industries, particularly as an advocate for education and training.

AIP National President Llew Stephens has congratulated his colleague for the honour.

"There is little doubt that without his hard work, usually in a voluntary capacity, the AIP would not be in existence today," he says.

"We also have Harry to thank for the healthy state of our education offerings and there are several thousand Australians with a better understanding of packaging and food as a result of Harry’s teachings and seminars.

"This is a wonderful honour to Harry to be awarded the OAM. It is encouraging to see that such an enthusiastic gentleman has been recognised for his untiring focus and dedication to hard work usually in a voluntary capacity."

Lovell is a chartered packaging technologist and food technologist with over 50 years industry experience in packaging and food manufacturing.
