Retail Packaging: Folding Boxes
Food items, confectionery, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics... any product intended for sale in a retail outlet will need some form of packaging. As the very first point of contact with a potential buyer, this packaging is fundamental to the product’s success. Folding box packaging has multiple functions: to stand out on shelf, to convey key brand values and messages, to inform the shopper/consumer, and also to protect the contents.
Specialist teams at four different STI Group packaging sites are dedicated to designing, developing, printing and producing customised packaging for a diverse range of industries. This packaging varies widely in specification and run size, from promotional packaging for a new product launch to machined blanks for blockbuster drugs. STI Group box production meets the highest international quality, hygiene and environmental production standards with relevant certification. STI Group’s manufacturing plants in Germany were one of the first to obtain FSC® certification from the Forest Stewardship Council in 2008, followed by its international box production sites. The next step was PEFC certification. Today, the company mainly uses FSC® certified materials for its folding boxes.
