Denmark / Netherlands: Twinpack and Hedegaard Foods explore egg packaging innovation
Twinpack B.V., a Dutch packaging company, has joined forces with food manufacturer Hedegaard Foods A/S to set up the packaging company Eggs-Posure, with the vision of providing creative packaging concepts for the global egg industry.
The new company wants to "generate added value for the global egg industry" and has already launched eggyplay®, a patented egg box design made from colourful moulded plastic that can also be reused as a toy.
The packaging is described as dishwasher safe and once empty and washed, the interlocking boxes can be used as building blocks, giving children hours of fun.
“We can contribute in-depth knowledge of eggs, egg packaging, and sales, whereas Twinpack possesses specialist know-how within the manufacture and sale of packaging concepts worldwide. As such, we believe that Twinpack is a perfect match for us,” commented Ivan Noes Jorgensen, CEO at Hedegaard Foods.
