Secondary Packaging Is Key to Club Store Success

Club stores such as Costco, BJ's, and Sam's Club are known for their over-sized products and multi-packs. Berlin Packaging and PakTech understand that specialty packs come with unique secondary packaging requirements to meet the club's desired packaging outcomes. They must provide sustainable packaging without compromising food safety, product quality, or sales - all while ensuring the packaging complies with applicable laws, reduces materials, and communicates effectively with consumers.

PakTech Handles meet and exceed these three packaging expectations:

  1. Reduce the Amount of Overall Packaging: PakTech Handles use the least amount of material, while providing the best performance without compromising product integrity.
  2. Increase the Recycled Content and Certified: PakTech Handles are made with 100% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) HDPE #2, which eliminates virgin material usage, reduces valuable resource depletion, and embodies the circular economy.
  3. Increase the Recyclability: PakTech Handles are made from 100% rHDPE #2 Bottle Grade Recycled Material - one of the most collected plastic materials for recycling, secondy only to PET. HDPE #2 is accepted globally and highly desirable for recycling due to its clean mono-material repurposing advantages, and existing end-markets.

Berlin Packaging & PakTech has the expertise to help you break into the wholesale club market.

Case Study

In early 2023, Berlin Packaging had an opportunity with a major food customer that was trying to break into club stores, where sustainability is a top priority. Berlin Packaging worked with PakTech on a custom solution to meet the customer's unique needs.

Rather than produce their product in a 30 ounce bulk size, the customer wanted to use their existing 12 & 16 oz jars, but needed a solution to package two jars as a set - all while keeping sustainability in mind.

Berlin Packaging reached out to PakTech seeking a solution as an alternative to cardboard. PakTech developed a custom handle that was not only compatible with the customer's packaging, but also used the customer's existing equipment.

PakTech Makes Sustainability a Competitive Advantage

Compared to both paperboard carrier and paperboard carton, PakTech has a significantly lower environmental impact on multiple dimensions—climate change, acidification, eutrophication, health impacts, smog air, and energy demand. Overall, PakTech’s global warming impact is about 2.5 times lower than the paperboard alternatives considered for the project.
