Product Benefits

The carefully placed ribs reinforce the packaging, thus reducing damage claims & increasing customer satisfaction.

The fact that moulded fibre is easily recyclable ensures reduced disposal costs in countries where packaging is regulated by environmental packaging directives (e.g. EU).

The robustness of the bottled shipper allowed Gaea to substitute the cardboard box, initially planned to be used, with a simple paperboard carton; hence significantly lowering the cost of packaging materials. 

The simplicity of the molded fiber packaging made the packing process quicker and even allowed its use in automatic packing lines.

The stackable packaging reduced shipping costs and minimized required storage space.
