Innovation works in two dimensions. The basis for innovation is the daily innovative work that we carry out in close collaboration with our customers. We help our customers to develop their products and to be even more competitive. At our headquarters in Malmö, Sweden, we gather all of our research data in our Innovation Room.
Here we analyze and translate the information into various packaging scenarios together with our customers. We look at the different aspects such as handling, function, sustainability, consumer desirability, and much more to develop the perfect packaging solutions.
The package has about two seconds to engage the average consumer at the shelf. This is where the total design and marketing efforts need to make an impact and stand out. Consumers and distributors need safe, sustainable packaging for handling food and other sensitive products.
Packaging preserves food and protects products that would otherwise go to waste. Intelligent packaging makes logistics and transportation more efficient. Packaging is also the most important advertising space and brand builder for many products. The modern society simply needs good innovative and sustainable packaging solutions.
Service is perhaps the easiest word to define, but the hardest to live up to. Service is about being able to deliver the right product at the right time. We know that we are world- class when it comes to service, but it is very important to constantly improve our service to continue to meet our customers’ needs in the absolute best way.
A&R Carton’s quality policy states our commitment to delivering the highest standards of quality, safety and responsiveness in the packaging solutions and services we pro- vide for our customers. By focusing on quality, we will develop and maintain a competitive edge, thereby securing the profitability and future of our company.
