Consumer Packaging

Packed to protect. Styled to sell.

Customised packaging design and solutions for frozen, chilled and ambient products

Injection moulding for packaging has been consistently developed over the past few years. In the food industry, this type of packaging continues to gain new market shares. A growing number of companies are taking advantage of this technology along with in-mould labeling, which integrates both the plastic container and labeling into a single manufacturing step in the package manufacturing process.  We develop our packaging solutions in close cooperation with the customer, resulting in unique convenience packaging shapes that stand out on the supermarket shelf and give products a fresh image that appeals to new consumer target groups.

And the Emmi goes to… Sonoco
Swiss dairy choses IML packaging for about 50 yoghurt varieties

Swiss yoghurt is becoming a top seller in Asia and the Middle East, whether it is pineapple yoghurt in Asia or strawberry flavour in the United Arab Emirates. The Emmi Group headquartered in Lucerne, Switzerland relies on Sonoco’s in-mould labelling (IML) solutions to pack its about 50 different yoghurt varieties and flavours. These high-quality packages are produced using thin-walled injection techniques and replace the previous deep-drawn cups with self-adhesive labels. Learn more about this collaboration.
