Who we are
We are a Durban based flexible packaging business with two plants employing 400 people, focused on the Food FMCG sector. Our primary markets are the confectionary, soups and sauces, snacks and HPC sectors.
We also have a pouch conversion facility in Cape Town which employs 80 people, and supplies various pouch formats into our FMCG market.
What we do
Our facilities primarily supply reel stock to our customer base, other than the pouch facility. The plants have technology to provide both flexo and gravure print to cover the growing needs for premium print and short run. Most products have barrier requirements and as such are laminates. We provide some value added processes in the form of laser perforation for easy open and promotional sticker inserts sourced from our partners in Argentina.
We also supply into the pharmaceutical market – various sachet laminates, and the local Paper industry where we supply wrapper for folio and ream wrap.
On the other extreme we supply the only product in which we own a Trademark, being roof insulation into Sub Sahara Africa – the Sisalation brand.
Which industries do we serve?
Our primary markets are Food FMCG, with a significant portion being supply into the confectionary market. We are privileged to supply some of the largest FMCG multi-nationals and Local Heroes, such as:
Unilever, Nestle, Mondelez, Mars, Tiger Brands, Pioneer, Premier, GSK, Aspeno, Mondi, Sappi.
In addition to manufacture we have a history of trading products that we can source more effectively than manufacture, and have formal partnership agreements with Mondi Coatings for Africa and Autopack Argentina
Fun fact about our sites
Our first move into the Flexibles FMCG market was in 2004 with the purchase of a CI flexo press and extrusion laminator. This has evolved through acquisition and investment into a business with vast capability and markets served. We are now the second largest player in the region.
