Facilitate space optimization on shelf

How can packaging secure significant shelf space for you in the supermarket?

With increasing competition in the field of refrigerated shelf, it is crucial that packaging helps supermarkets optimize their shelf space. That is why space optimization constitutes an important part of your food packaging.

Round packaging takes up more space on shelves compared to square packaging. It is important that your packaging is easy to display on-shelf, as this optimizes the supermarket’s work process. If you have a product without a track record, it is beneficial that packaging is cooperative when entering the shelf space competition.

Your ticket to retailers’ shelves

As a manufacturer, you depend on the retail sector. Therefore, we will always work in close partnership with our customers to create a complete packaging solution which facilitates the storing and selling of the final product.

You can also reach out to our experienced specialists when need be.

Meet the demands for sustainable plastic packaging

How do you meet the market demands for sustainability when plastics are considered bad for the environment?

Reducing plastic packaging and moving to alternative materials has become top priority in the retail sector. This is due to consumers’ concern about the footprint plastic packaging leave on the world, among many other things.

Unfortunately, many falsely believe avoiding plastic packaging is the answer, although plastics are ideal material for food packaging. Plastics protect the food on its journey from production facility to retail stores and finally the kitchen tables. Plastics are recyclable. Last but not least: plastics prolong the shelf life of food, reducing food waste.

When is plastic packaging considered sustainable?

At Plus Pack, sustainability is inherently linked to a circular economy in which materials are kept in the loop. Packaging should be sorted and recycled instead of being disposed of after use. Therefore, we design plastic packaging solutions based on three simple principles:

  • Mono-materials
  • Clear materials
  • Materials with recycled content

We design and develop packaging solutions for the growing  sustainability packaging demands. Our product portfolio complies completely with regulations related to packaging, including the European Union’s plastics strategy where all packaging must be recyclable or reusable by 2030.

It is our ambition to keep you ahead of the curve, prepared for future demands from consumers and governments.

Make logistics run efficiently

Do you want to reduce the transport costs of your products? Packaging design can help you achieve that.
We help you make savings on transport.

To create the right design of the packaging is important. All decisions taken impact the logistics and transport costs. One example is square shaped trays and containers that utilize space more efficiently, as they can be packed more tightly together in cartons compared to round packaging.

This means that:

  • You can transport more products in less space
  • You spend less fuel on transport
  • You achieve remarkable savings for your business over time, as these savings recur every time your products are transported from A to B.

At Plus Pack, we have decades of experience in optimizing packaging solutions. Our expertise can benefit your business. You can reach out to us anytime if you are looking for a calculation of your potential savings.
