EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- May 6, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is proud to announce that it recently
received three Excellence in Flexography Awards from the Flexographic
Technical Association (FTA), including the organization’s 2013 Technical
Innovation Award for the Company's Indirect Flexo (IDF) printing process.

“We are deeply honored to receive not only the 2013 Technical Innovation
Award, but also receive a Bronze and Silver award from the FTA which is such a
highly-respected industry organization,” said Jennye Scott, Vice President of
Creative Services at Berry Plastics.

Founded in 1958, the FTA is the world’s leading professional society dedicated
to the advancement of the flexographic printing industry. Flexographic
printing uses inked flexible printing plates, with slightly raised images,
that are placed on a rotating cylinder to transfer an image to a substrate,
such as plastic used in packaging.

Developed as an alternative to dry offset printing, IDF is a patent pending
process which allows Berry Plastics to produce excellent photographic quality
graphics on white, clear, and colored substrates. The exceptional graphic
quality is achieved through utilization of high-res digital plate imaging and
true CMYK flexographic process, allowing for softer edges, better highlights,
and the ability to replicate the full-color spectrum. In addition, the IDF
process allows for this high-end printing to occur directly on the injection
or thermoform part by compensating for the angle between the top and the
bottom of the cup or container.

“Berry Plastics is the only provider in North America of the unique IDF
printing process,” added Scott. “We are extremely excited by the limitless
opportunities that can be produced by utilizing IDF. The printed results are
sophisticated graphics which provide distinctive and eye-catching products for
our customers.”

Berry Plastics was also awarded a Silver in the Narrow Web Screen Metalized
category for its label produced for the Gillette Fusion ProGlide. In addition,
the Company earned a Bronze in the Narrow Web Screen Film category for its
label produced for Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer.
