Protective & Consumer Packaging
The first patent for molded pulp manufacturing was filed in 1903 and it has been evolving ever since. Historically it was just used for protective packaging, such as egg cartons and end caps. In more recent years, there have been advances in the technology to create more sophisticated packaging with smoother surfaces and a more stylish look & feel.
With the improved appearance, pulp packaging is now being used for a wide range of applications. Global consumer brands, such as Apple and PUMA developed elegant and distinctive retail packaging with molded pulp. Apple’s iPhone is designed with a smooth white pulp insert that is secured into a printed rigid box. PUMA chose a more organic and natural aesthetic for their mobile phone case with rounded corners, debossed artwork and a natural kraft-colored corrugated material. Here are SPI, our molded pulp GreenKraft clamshells are an off-the-shelf packaging option for businesses and projects of any size.
