The great variety of products sold in the food and cosmetics industry alone is impressive. A wide variety of materials, for example cardboard packaging and films, serve to protect the products, but thanks to design and attractive printing they also increase the consumer’s incentive to buy. From boxes for perfume bottles to bubble wrap for the protection of fragile goods to ecological food packaging, the optimal packaging materials are chosen according to requirements. In addition to the packaging material, folding cartons and co. are legally differentiated according to their purpose.


Packaging types

  • Sales packaging: Packaging for the end consumer in which the goods are contained, e.g. folding box
  • Outer packaging: Packaging from which the consumer takes the sales packaging, e.g. display case.
  • Transport packaging: Packaging for transporting the goods that does not reach the consumer, e.g. shipping carton.
  • Service packaging: outer packaging for handing over the goods to the consumer, e.g. takeaway cartons.
