Packaging development

Whether you need new packaging, or to optimise your current packaging, we’ve got the skills to help you.

Our packaging technicians and designers work together at developing packaging holistically, resulting in efficient processing and optimum product protection. We’ll also make sure that the packaging is optimised to meet different requirements throughout your product range.

You might not always know exactly what you want at the start of a project. We understand that. The idea with our co-create workshops is to involve you in our ideation sessions – giving a great foundation for valuable concept discussions and direct feedback. Our interactive sessions are lead using creating techniques and can be held both digitally or on-site.

Material fit is a standalone service that can be integrated into a wider development project to provide maximum added value.

Sustainability service

How to make your packages more sustainable? What are the sustainability challenges you are struggling with? With the help of our Centre of Excellence for Packaging Sustainability (CEPS) team, we can screen your packaging portfolio and give suggestions how to make your packaging more sustainable. Together with the CEPS team, we can:

  • identify the improvement areas and possibilities in the sustainability domain
  • estimate the carbon footprint reduction potential and assess other environmental impacts
  • support with product circularity related questions, be they are about technical recyclability, compostability, access to recycling or biowaste treatment systems, or biodegradation related matters
  • support with sustainability claims and regulation

Packaging automisation

We have wide expertise in packaging machinery and automisation, supporting you with an optimal implementation of the converting, filling and packaging processes. Having this knowledge integrated early in the development process helps achieve an efficient process and satisfactory result.
