Your specialist for beverage packaging

The growing market pressure in the beverage sector places high demands on packaging manufacturers when it comes to flexibility, product quality and efficiency of packaging machines.

Our new products - innovative packaging types, shapes and qualities - are also driven by a strong environmental awareness and the demand for sustainability. Several new developments have revolutionised the sector.


Special packaging designs

“Our gin packaging acts as a calling card for pure gin enjoyment: extremely cool, provocative and unfussy. With a black offset drink and white hot foil embossing on the matt white rough cardboard, Karl Knauer has precisely met our tastes and needs - we really hit the jackpot!”

Can Saglam, Managing Director of HEERSCHILD

Alternatives to shrink wrap

LitePac Top brings sustainability to container packaging

Tighter laws, rising energy prices and a change in consumer attitudes demand alternatives to plastic and foil. Despite this, PET bottles and beverage cans are still popular primary packaging for drinks in Germany. This makes it all the more important to avoid plastic in secondary packaging.

Revolutionary cardboard container packaging

Working together with Krones AG, system suppliers in the beverage sector, we have developed sustainable “LitePac Top” packaging. Instead of shrink wrap, a sturdy box holds the – mostly – 6-packs of 0.5 to 1.5-litre PET bottles securely together. But LitePac Top is also available for 2- or 4-bottle packs.  “LitePac Top” attached from above connects the bottles. For the 0.5 to 1.5-litre bottles, 100% paper hoops provide additional stability.

LitePac Top for beverage cans

LitePac Top can also be used to safely package beverage cans without plastic. A sturdy cardboard box holds the 4, 6 or 8-can containers securely together. In addition to LitePac Top Standard, LitePac Top Protect and LitePac Top Promo Skirt are also available.

LitePac Top Protect – The all-rounder among the clips.  

In addition to the standard cans, the LitePac Top Protect variant can even be used for the other can types Slim or Sleek. Each can clicks into the carrying shape. The can lid is protected against soiling.
