Custom E-Flute and Pre-Print Replacement Solution for the Food Packaging Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
A customer in the food packaging industry contacted Stronghaven Inc. about designing and developing corrugated packaging for hamburgers. Our client wanted packaging that was leaner and that actually reflected the appearance of the hamburger patties contained within. We knew that with our advanced equipment and years of experience in food packaging that we would be perfect for the job.
Firstly, we converted from B Flute to E Flute corrugated. Because of this reduced container size, our client would be able to stack an additional layer of boxes on each warehouse pallet, thereby saving 17% in its distribution costs. Secondly, we converted the packaging from pre-print to direct print, thus eliminating the liability of roll-stock inventory. In addition, as requested, our visual display mimicked the actual hamburgers as they appeared therein, giving the prospective customer an accurate presentation.
Custom E-Flute and Pre-Print Packaging
Finally, we were able to give our client greater overall ease and flexibility in the way they did business. By incorporating a section in the box-art that allowed our client to change an area of print whenever they run a promotional program, we gave them streamlined packaging that could be changed without hassle. Secondly, having converted the style of the box into an auto-bottom, this eliminated one person per shift off the production line.
