Greiner Packaging is producing glass-look yogurt packaging for dairy company Molkerei Fuchs in Switzerland. As unusual as it may sound at first, this innovative plastic product is much lighter and more shatterproof, while still having excellent barrier properties.

Mainly designed for families and multiperson households, the 500-gram PET yogurt can can be resealed thanks to its snap-on lid, making it a sustainable solution. The short delivery distance from Greiner Packaging in Diepoldsau to the dairy facility in Rorschach was one of the decisive factors for the supplier.

Years in the making

The PET can has already been on the market for a while. Over time, however, it has been steadily improved in terms of its barrier properties and oxygen permeability. The transparency of the PET material has also been improved to provide an even better glass look. This was a rewarding task for us at Greiner Packaging, given our reputation as proven experts in PET injection stretch blow molding at a number of production facilities. Since 2019, Molkerei Fuchs has exclusively supplied its strawberry, four-fruit, and vanilla and rhubarb yogurts to the Migros East Switzerland supermarket cooperative in these new PET cans. Thanks to their size and high degree of transparency, these are a true eye-catcher in the refrigerated aisle.

A partnership with deep roots

No wonder, then, that Molkerei Fuchs – a long-standing customer – opted to continue working with Greiner Packaging on this packaging solution. K3® cups have been delivered to the dairy company for many years, and now another packaging innovation has been added to their range in the form of the new PET can.

We have worked closely with Molkerei Fuchs for a number of years. Our goal is to find the perfect packaging solution for every product and every target group – and work to continuously improve it. The PET can is an attractive way of displaying the product. And since it is made of plastic rather than glass, there is no risk of it breaking if it gets knocked to the ground. This makes the PET can the perfect packaging solution for everyday family life.
