Customised packaging design and solutions for frozen, chilled and ambient products
Injection moulding for packaging has been consistently developed over the past few years. In the food industry, this type of packaging continues to gain new market shares. A growing number of companies are taking advantage of this technology along with in-mould labeling, which integrates both the plastic container and labeling into a single manufacturing step in the package manufacturing process. We develop our packaging solutions in close cooperation with the customer, resulting in unique convenience packaging shapes that stand out on the supermarket shelf and give products a fresh image that appeals to new consumer target groups.
