What makes K3® so unique?

Convenience for starters. Thanks to its innovative, patented tear-open system, K3® delivers the ability to easily separate its plastic and cardboard components. Reduced plastics content contributes to lower CO2 emissions, while a high level of stability is guaranteed through the durable cardboard wrap. As often as possible, renewable resources are used and, whenever appropriate, biopolymers such as PLA are incorporated. The cardboard surface provides a pleasant feel to the touch as well as outstanding printing capabilities for a distinctive appearance and an unparalleled opportunity to promote recipes, competitions, high-quality marketing messages and more. Additional functions such as windows in the cardboard wrap or special isolation effects can also be implemented according to your individual specifications. 

You can trust the original 

K3® packaging solutions meet the highest demands on modern packaging communication. The term K3® is a registered trademark and is protected by numerous patent rights (Greiner Packaging owns approximately 200 single-property rights in the forms of patents, designs and trademarks). K3® has become synonymous with high-quality combined packaging in the rigid sector.
