Successful change to sustainable packaging

“Customers that value organic quality also prefer sustainable packaging. In our K-Bio series, we started using bowls that are composed of up to 25% green cuttings.  Throughout the entire process, we had excellent support from the Karl Knauer team and we are fully satisfied with the end result.”

Markus Mutz, Fruit & Vegetable Purchasing Agent, Kaufland

Folding box variants

Which packaging types for which foods?

Folding boxes

Stable, hygienic, individual: Almost any box design can be chosen and implemented for optimum protection of food products. Large material selection, diverse finishing options, various base and opening variants.

Authentic product presentation: An eye-catcher at the POS that lets customers see and assess the contents. The customer can perceive the quality, appearance, mixture etc. of the product. The patched window can be realised with or without a film adhered on the reverse side.

Less complexity, more value: Perfect supplement for existing primary packaging. Inexpensive individualisation, individual print, additional stability e.g. by means of integrated base, additional protection plus added value for the products.

Sustainability as a megatrend: Reducing plastic is one of the most important requirements for the packaging of fruit and vegetables. As an expert in sustainable food packaging, we offer a wide range of well-designed packaging made from paper and cardboard, or from alternative grass cardboard or cardboard from agricultural waste with additional ecological advantages. The aim is always to develop consistent overall concepts that perfectly protect your products from transportation to the POS and present your brand optimally.
