Western Australian Government Innovation Program Award, 2017
We were honoured and delighted to have received a prestigious "Innovation Voucher" from the Western Australian Government to travel and research potential international sales platforms whilst introducing our Orchid Valley products to the UK veterinary delegates at the British Small Animal Veterinary Congress in Birmingham earlier in 2018. The Orchid Valley team travelled to the UK in April where our innovative creations and ethos were warmly and enthusiastically received by the British veterinary fraternity, who demonstrated tangible relief at the revelation of our dignified, practical and affordable products. We are delighted that The Orchid Valley Collection will be warehoused in England and distributed across the UK and Europe by a renowned veterinary distributor later in 2018. We look forward to expanding our wholesale operations and delivering our products for UK veterinarians to utilise as standard practice, as we fulfil contracts that will see the Orchid Valley ethos spread across the UK and Europe in the months ahead.
Bronze Winner - Worldwide Packaging Design Awards (PENTAWARDS), China 2016
From a simple idea created on the way home from a Western Australian veterinary clinic with pet guinea pigs Taze and Tex, to the WORLDWIDE PACKAGING DESIGN AWARDS 2016 (PENTAWARDS), SHANGHAI, CHINA! Dessein & Orchid Valley WON THE BRONZE award in the pet category! We received notification a month beforehand that an international judging panel had considered our little pet caskets to be the third best designed pet product in the world.
The awards ceremony was held at Hyatt on the Bund in Shanghai, and was a most prestigious event, being the ‘Oscars' of the packaging design industry, which naturally dissolved into an epic all night party at the roof top wine cellar and spa....
Orchid Valley Pet Caskets were created to bring dignity to animals, and are sold individually to families worldwide, and wholesale to veterinarians, together with our 'forever bed' cadaver bags and enchanting signature collection of comforting bereavement gifts, across Australia and the world.
