Bonding of boxes in the Serbian food industry

A Serbian confectionary company, Bambi Banat, was approached by Henkel, one of the global leaders of chemical solutions for adhesives in the packaging business, with a proposal to improve the packaging processes.

Henkel proposed the usage of a new adhesive as it would enable the user to reduce packaging costs and improve environmental performance at the same time. The Chemical Leasing contract was signed and prolonged on a yearly basis. It was successfully implemented on six packaging lines and a new adhesive was chosen for the bonding of more than 20 different types of boxes in varying shapes and sizes.

A reduction of adhesive consumption by 30 % was achieved and the new business model enabled the Serbian company to cut costs significantly and to achieve environmental, economic and social benefits at the same time.
