Pizza style postal boxes

We manufacture a range of pizza style postal boxes (also known as FEFCO Style 0426 or 0427), providing an efficient protective packaging solution for your eCommerce distribution needs.

Pizza style postal boxes are supplied flat making them easy to store. They are quick and easy to assemble due to their hinged lid design with simple tuck-in flaps. As pizza style boxes are self-interlocking only a security seal is required to safeguard the protects during the final mile delivery. Additional paper-based fitments or corner edge protectors can also be added to hold products securely within the pack.

Our cardboard pizza style boxes are FSC® certified, 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource. These boxes are a great option for consumers as they can be recycled in the regular kerbside cardboard recycling system. 

Printed postal boxes are manufactured bespoke to your requirements and utilising various print finishes, they can be printed on both the inside and the outside, to include handling instructions, product/sustainability information or branding. 

Also available Vegan Certified.

Amazon Frustration Free Packaging (FFP)

Smurfit Kappa EU is an official participant in the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS)

The APASS program has been designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers in obtaining certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).

The packaging initiative implemented by Amazon enhances the consumer experience by using recyclable boxes that are easy to open and free of excess materials such as hard plastic clamshell cases, plastic bindings, and wire ties. APASS also improves the environmental footprint of Amazon suppliers by reducing packaging waste and product damages due to the optimised packaging solutions.

Smurfit Kappa provides APASS services directly to vendors, sellers or manufacturers in compliance with Amazon’s certification requirements and guidelines.
