Your specialist for food packaging
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
Which packaging types for which foods?
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.
Folding boxes with patched window
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.
From ice cold to piping hot: We supply food packaging that protects fresh and frozen products from condensation and moisture, packaging that is suitable for the oven or microwave and take-away packaging for transporting hot food.
Baskets, bowls, shakers
Sustainable beats plastic: The first choice for fruit and vegetables. Our printed packaging solutions combine sustainable material with product protection. To give sensitive products optimum protection, bowls can also be designed with lids and patched windows.
Folding boxes with integrated lining
Protect liquids and ground material: from moisture, loss of flavour, light and oxygen. Our printed folding boxes with barrier function are suitable for an automatic and highly efficient packaging process. We base our design on your packaging equipment.
Folding boxes for perfect portioning and dispensing
Convenience sells: Many customers prefer food packaging that enables simple opening, pouring, measuring out and reclosing. We have developed numerous opening and pouring variants with convenient handling.
Consumers prefer sustainable food packaging
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.
