That’s a Wrap

The “Bonduelle Bundle” removes plastic overwrap from its 3 cans pack and replaces that
with cartonboard material which is ecological, recycled and recyclable. The minimal pack design uses 30% less cartonboard than a classic wrap-around pack, 20% less ink and enables the consumer to see more of the product. Integrated tongues top and bottom hold the cans securely and an easy to open perforation enables quicker access to the product. There is a large area for advertising the brand’s sustainable ethos and the bundle pack can be adapted to different sizes and numbers of cans.

Gives you Wings

“Cluster-Wing™” is a carbon neutral and recyclable cartonboard alternative to single-use plastic wrap for multipack cans. The design has ‘wings’ in the top and bottom panels which lock the cans in place and do not require any glue or adhesives. The pack is designed to use 50% less material than a fully enclosed carton and 10% less than a traditional wrap design whilst maintaining the performance and convenience which consumers expect. Designed to run on WestRock’s high-speed automation, the “Cluster-Wing™” ships flat on pallets, enabling supply chain efficiencies compared to a pre-glued sleeve.

Make Up for the New Year

This attractive heptagonal pack is made up of seven identical, linked cartonboard triangular cases which contain seven makeup gifts. The carton can be displayed in a number of ways and is fun for consumers to interact with as it can be unfolded and shaped into a 7-petal pinwheel, a star and even a caterpillar. This modular pack is designed with the same shape being copied seven times in order to simplify the folding and gluing processes and reduce machine preparation time making the pack less difficult and less costly to make.

Ripe and Ready Tomatoes

This 100% fibre-based, fully recyclable pack for tomatoes delivers a sustainable packaging option, prevents damage to the tomatoes inside and avoids food waste. Traditional plastic packaging has been replaced with an integrated hinged cartonboard pack with strategically placed cut-outs. These cut-outs enable the consumer to see the product inside but are small enough to maintain structural integrity. The pack is scalable for other fresh produce applications. The board used does not absorb moisture when stored in a fridge.

Beer on view

This 6-cornered premium gift pack uses sustainable material and food-safe low migration inks. It stands out on the shelf due to its unusual pack shape and visible Latvian beer and branded glass. Its push-in window design lets the consumer see the product and also holds the product securely. This 2-piece construction design reduces the amount of packaging weight used because a 6-corner profile uses less material than a 4-corner design. The push-in window acts as both divider and support. The black pack is overlaid with hotfoil and spot gloss UV varnish to resemble the beer.
