Smurfit Kappa creates Better Planet Packaging alternative for detergent box

  • Smurfit Kappa

Smurfit Kappa has introduced a cleverly engineered new packaging solution for detergent pods and capsules. The child-proof TopLock Box provides a safe, convenient and sustainable alternative to the traditional plastic box for laundry products.

The patented TopLock Box features an ingenious opening mechanism making it a very attractive solution for companies seeking a sustainable alternative for their certified child-proof packaging solutions.

The TopLock Box is a 100% plastic-free solution made entirely from FSC® certified paper-based packaging, which is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. It has significant environmental benefits and offers a 40% carbon footprint reduction in comparison to the traditional rigid plastic alternatives.

The box, which is leak proof, is delivered as a flat, single item creating inbound logistics and storage savings. The dimensions of the pack can also be tailored to increase supply chain efficiency.

Commenting on the announcement, Vice President of Innovation and Development at Smurfit Kappa, Arco Berkenbosch said: “We are delighted to introduce our newest child-proof packaging solution to the market. Our innovation team has worked tirelessly to develop a brilliant solution that has the potential to be used for other products that need to be kept out of reach of children like, for example, medication.

“We have created an adaptable and flexible solution that can increase the efficiency of our customers’ supply chains which ultimately helps them achieve their sustainability and business goals and creates a fantastic consumer experience.”

The TopLock Box is the sister packaging solution of Smurfit Kappa’s innovative Click-to-Lock Pods Box, which was launched last year.
