DS Smith Heavy Duty 600KG bulk pack "Worldstar" recognition

When food giant Heinz required a replacement and different approach for their bulk containers, they turned to the Heavy Duty packaging business of DS Smith.

“When food giant Heinz required a replacement and different approach for their bulk containers, they turned to the Heavy Duty packaging business of DS Smith to develop a robust corrugated alternative. The solution developed at the company’s locations in Hinckley and Heanor, combine innovative features which improve supply cycle efficiencies in the Heinz food business.

The solution, developed by DS Smith Packaging Engineer, Richard Barker includes an integrated KAYPAL® cardboard pallet and design features which minimize the risk of contamination in this highly sensitive production environment. The pack contains 600KGs of food in powdered form and can be double stacked. 

The design has once again been recognised at the International “Worldstar” design competition at which Richard was presented with his award May 13th in Dusseldorf and follows earlier recognition last year at the UK “Starpack” awards.
