Two different worlds that merge into one and so provide the customer an enormous added value. That is a short description of the cooperation which we have with Bakker Logistiek. We recently achieved another success in repacked thousands of quarter pallets.
ISM 2020: Enjoying mealworm lollypops
It’s a fixed yearly visit for Vetipak; The Internationale Süßwaren Messe (ISM) in Cologne. This time Joergen Pleijte (Bussiness Development Manager) and Marcel Zondag (Customer support Manager) visited this leading trade fair in the confectionery and snacks industry. Three trends they want to share with you.
The ISM offers the largest number of brands in candy and confectionery. So eminently the place be to stay informed on the major market developments and trends. Here they are!
1. Vegan on the rise
A development where almost every manufacturer, large or small, is focussing on; the rise of vegan products. Think about dairy free chocolats that are not filled anymore with gelatine but with fruit pieces. In the Netherlands Vegan candy is already fully available. Vetipak co-packs more and more vegan candy on its production lines.
2. Circularity and sustainability
Although there never is a central theme at the ISM it looked it had one this year. Everywhere we looked circularity and sustainability was a hot topic. Probably not a surprise for the visitors and for Vetipak again the confirmation that packing circular and sustainable is the future.
3. Candy from insects
It may sound a bit weird, but in a short time you’ll be enjoying your mealworm lollipop with cherry flavour or chocolate bars with protein of grinded grashoppers. Really; candy made of insects. There are already some succesfull companies cultivating insects for foodprocessing on a large scale. It would be great for Vetipak to be the first Dutch co-packer that packs candy insect bars.

The latest news.
A packaging line with (maxi) star status!
Suppose you are a manufacturer of dog snacks. Tasty, fresh, good for the teeth and produced in two attractive variants: mini and maxi chunX. How do you ensure that the star-shaped chunks end up neatly in the packaging? And that they don't (stick) together? For this we have developed a solution at Vetipak.
“Sometimes the human being still wins from our robots”
Conquer the market with a manually packed end product. That is what plant manager Eric Vlassak strives for. Under his enthusiastic leadership, thirty ‘rigid boxes’ for a well-known home & body brand roll off the line every minute in our Personal Care factory. Folded and glued. But that is just the beginning.
