Masava Kemi | Bag-in-Box Success Story | Smurfit Kappa


Helping a manufacturer of cleaning products for ships sail towards sustainable packaging

The Challenge
Masava Kemi, a manufacturer of cleaning products specifically for the shipping industry, sought a more sustainable way to pack its products. The challenge was to replace rigid plastic containers, which when empty took up valuable space and incurred handling costs at the harbour. This often resulted in them being thrown overboard littering our oceans.

The Approach
Our team recommended a Bag-in-Box® solution suitable for dispensing bulk liquids. The outer box was made from solid board which can withstand wet conditions and the bag was specifically selected for detergents with varying acidity levels. The final solution was then tested and UN-certified as approved packaging for the safe transportation of dangerous goods.

The Result
The Bag-in-Box® solution allowed Masava Kemi to achieve its sustainability goal of phasing out rigid plastic packaging. Once empty, the new solution can be flattened and properly disposed of helping to keep our oceans free from plastics. Additionally, valuable storage space is no longer taken up with empty containers and handling costs at the harbour have been eliminated. Supply chain efficiencies were also achieved with a pallet of empty Bag-in-Box packs holding 900 units versus 60 of the plastic containers.
