An exciting SRP order
First of all, we would like to reveal: At the end of this story, our customer is happy. The wholesale chain as well as millions of Americans who enjoy biting into Swiss chocolate wafers.
But one thing at a time. It all started with a demanding shelf ready packaging order from our customer Kägi from Toggenburg: Optimal palletizing with clear conditions from the American wholesaler Costco. Cost-efficient and at the same time stable packaging. Easy and efficient to handle. Eye-catcher at the point of sale (POS) for high brand awareness. A perfect challenge for Model Service Co-Packing.
The requirements: Shelf Ready Packaging for Kägi
Model Co-Packing: Tinkering, calculating, testing
«We wanted to utilize the pallets for Kägi as efficiently as possible,» reports Sven Johner, Manager at Model Co-Packing in Niedergösgen. «Our calculations went full speed and we considered some design options together with our customer.»
Shelf Ready Packaging comes with great responsibility because Kägi stands for the highest Swiss quality: Customers all over the world enjoy the waffles with creamy mousse filling wrapped in Swiss chocolate. The product should be perfectly received by the customer and hence the team of Model Co-Packing is working on the ideal packaging.
At the end of the project, Sven Johner explains, there was a very special moment for him: «The management of Kägi AG visited us in Niedergösgen, which does not happen every day. The CEO said to me: 'Sven, it's sensational. We wouldn't have been able to do that.' That filled me with pride.»
