Container carriers

Attractive and sustainable: packaging for soft drinks and mineral waters

The soft drinks, fruit juices and mineral waters sector is also increasingly focusing on sustainable packaging. In addition, bottle containers must be easy to handle and safe during transport. And they must attract attention at the POS. We offer simple, sustainable and individual solutions.

LitePac Top PET

Our revolutionary bottle packaging: a cardboard clip below the bottleneck keeps the container in place, while an additional cardboard hoop provides safety and comfort during transport. The packaging is made from 100% renewable raw materials.

Beer bottle carriers and packaging

Suitable for product variety: cardboard packaging for beer bottles

Bottle carriers/baskets

Cardboard bottle carriers are highly popular. There are almost no limits in terms of finish and design - we offer open or closed versions, a range of handle heights or continuous side panels that provide a large, individually usable advertising space.

Fully closed packaging for bottles

If maximum advertising space and excellent presentation of your products is required, we recommend fully closed packaging. These can also be stacked on trays, corrugated cardboard boxes or directly on pallets for safe transport.

Printed outer packaging for 12 beer bottles
Bottle wraps

Wraps are a classic when it comes to bottle packaging. Glued or plugged in at the bottom, they allow fast production and safe transport thanks to convenient grip holes. We offer wraps for up to ten bottles for both one-off and reusable packaging.

Bottle clips

A highly reduced type of bottle packaging: we provide cardboard bottle clips in various configurations - with and without handles, for standard bottles or special designs, for PET bottles and for glass bottles with swing tops.

Partitions/special designs

New solutions are often available on request. We offer handles for bottle packaging made completely from cardboard, or partitions. Partitions made from grey or corrugated cardboard separate and protect the individual bottles e.g. in fully closed packaging.

A colourful range: packaging for cans

Fully closed packaging for cans

They provide plenty of space for advertising and brand design and are very easy to stack. We offer single or double layer packaging, with and without handles. The double layer type is suitable as a comfortable “can dispenser” for storing in the fridge.

Can wraps

Similar to bottle wraps, can wraps allow highly rational production and very good handling. Our cardboard wraps can be configured for up to ten cans. Logistical advantage: can wraps are suitable for transporting to the POS on trays and in boxes.

LitePac Top can clips

Innovative, sustainable packaging for cans: cardboard below the can seam keeps the pack in shape, is easy to open and easy to grip. Our clips are made completely from renewable raw materials and are energy efficient in production.

Bonus for your marketing: the cans can be specifically aligned using machine technology in order to place the brand logo prominently on the sales shelf or to form a continuous design from several can designs.
