Before packaging enters into production, numerous questions have to be answered – it has to provide optimal protection for the product without releasing any harmful substances to the contents. It also provides consumers with information and carries advertisements, and should be easy to process. Costs play a role, of course. There are legal specifications to consider. And organic should be organic.
Our cardboard qualities are evidenced by convincing customer references. Feedback from the packaging manufacturers we supply is positive, and confirms our claim of precise machining, printing and finishing. Numerous branded companies appreciate the high-quality appearance of products that impress during the packing and logistics processes.
