Packaging for all food products

These environmentally-friendly packaging solutions underline your company’s commitment to sustainability and promote a positive image among environmentally-aware customers.
The FEFCO-Code is a recognised system for classifying packaging made from solid and corrugated cardboard. There are nine different basic types – we will be happy to determine with you which are the best suited for packaging your products safely and attractively.
Intelligently shaping the future: Internet of Packs with THIMM
Packaging with codes and serial numbers makes your entire product journey traceable.
This is what we are often asked about packaging
In addition to food product packaging, retail packaging and shipping boxes THIMM also provides all FEFCO-types of packaging solutions. These packaging types can also be broken down into many sub-categories: For example, the retail packaging category includes product packaging, shelf-ready packaging, transport packaging, top-sleeve boxes and wrap-arounds. The FEFCO catalogue provides an ideal overview of all packaging types. All our products are made from corrugated cardboard.
Shipping bags, e-commerce packaging and folding boxes from THIMM are ideal for online shipping. They are made from sustainable, robust corrugated cardboard and therefore not only protect your product, but also the climate. Our shipping boxes can also be designed to be printed and customised in the best possible way.
Take advantage of our packaging optimisation and we will find innovative solutions together to significantly reduce your use of resources. We carry out a comprehensive analysis to identify all untapped potential and eliminate cost drivers.
With shelf-ready packaging (SRP) you can increase your retail efficiency through maximised visibility and an integrated and simplified packaging process. This packaging solution can be printed to create impactful advertising, yet still looks attractive even when the product unit is almost sold out. It also makes the packaging easier for consumers to remove.
At THIMM we are pursuing a clear digitalisation vision: We have committed to the Internet of Packs. The Internet of Packs describes fully networked and traceable supply chains for all products and this is made possible by digitally printed packaging.
Our corrugated cardboard packaging is ideally suited to the circular economy, as it is made from sustainable, natural raw materials and is fully recyclable. Overall, corrugated cardboard packaging is an ecologically responsible choice that focuses on both the environment and customer needs.
We test every CO2 source in packaging production known to us and we are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Packaging cannot yet be produced in a completely climate-neutral manner. However, together with ClimatePartner, we offer you the opportunity to financially offset any CO2 emissions that arise. This means you are then using climate-neutral packaging.
There is not yet any scientific evidence of the advantage of reusable over single-use packaging: Studies show that the use of reusable solutions is not generally ecologically beneficial. THIMM is a pioneer in sustainable packaging solutions made from renewable and recycled raw materials. Our corrugated cardboard packaging is an exemplary circular product with an unparalleled recycling rate. Therefore, we believe that fibre-based (disposable) packaging should be at least comparable to reusable solutions.
Corrugated cardboard is created by gluing flute and liner papers together into one or more layers depending on product type. We use our corrugator for this purpose. It heats the paper rolls, moistens them with water vapour and under pressure and heat “irons” the flute into the paper. Corrugated cardboard base paper is used as the basic raw material – in Germany it is predominantly made from recycled paper with a proportion of fresh fibres and starch glue.
There are different types of corrugated cardboard based on the number and type of flutes. In addition to single-sided corrugated cardboard, there is single-fluted corrugated cardboard made from three paper webs. For example, the B-flute is one such single-flute. Double-wall corrugated cardboard is referred to as double-fluted corrugated cardboard, e.g. EE-flute. Multi-fluted corrugated cardboard such as CAA-flute is also common.
Corrugated cardboard types and the associated paper grammages should be selected carefully and in accordance with the specific requirements of the products to be packaged as well as the transportation and storage conditions.
The flute types are differentiated by flute pitch (t) and flute height (h). The single-flute range includes the C-flute, also called central flute which is one of the most commonly used flute types for packaging. The flute height is between 3.1 and 3.9 mm.
The term solid board refers to all solid boards. They are mainly made of wastepaper. This means the structure of solid board is homogeneous and has a particularly high density. This makes it robust, but also significantly heavier. If you want to package high-quality products, we recommend our substitute for solid cardboard packaging: Our F-flute packaging.
