Thimm Group has introduced Thimm parcelProof, a new generation of shipping packaging solutions with tamper-proof locks.
The single-material solution made from corrugated cardboard prevents unauthorised access and ensures the authenticity of the shipped goods. Isabella Glutenfreie Pâtisserie (Isabella gluten-free patisserie) is the first customer to use this new design. The family business offers high-quality, hand-made gluten-free bakery and confectionery products with a focus on health and sustainability.
Isabella Glutenfreie Pâtisserie was founded in 2014 in Düsseldorf. In order to enable consumers with food allergies or with the desire for conscious nutrition, to enjoy exclusive bakery and confectionery goods, the products are all produced totally gluten-free, mainly lactose-free and some are also vegan. Much emphasis is also placed on freshness, regionality and organic quality. For the launch of its online shop the
company was looking for a packaging solution that would embody these brand values whilst also meeting the high requirements for shipping sensitive food products in particular.
Thimm parcelProof was the answer. The shipping packaging includes a tamper-proof lock which means it cannot be opened without damaging it, so the recipient can immediately recognise on receipt that the packaging is intact. The final recipient simply uses the thin tear-off strip to open and unpack the box. The packaging is easy to dispose of and recycle because the external material proportion of the packaging is much less than five percent. Other sealing methods are not required. The pre-glued automatic floor is primarily used for products that are quickly and manually finished. “Together with Thimm we have developed a tasteful food box in the truest sense of the word,” says company founder Isabella Krätz describing the final result. “Totally aligned with our ideas, the packaging combines sustainable raw materials, secure locking technology and an innovative design. From the initial idea to the final development, Thimm worked closely with us and gave us many suggestions.”
The sophisticated print images on the packaging used by Isabella Glutenfreie Pâtisserie have been created using the digital web press technology of Thimm and Christiansen Print. Every box size has been created in a customised design. The colours used are water-based and suitable for indirect food contact.
