Packaging for the Flavors and Fragrances Industry

Darbox is present in the flavors and fragrances markets with leading packaging solutions for granulates, crystals, powders and more.

An example of how Darbox delivers to the Flavors Industry:

Vanillin is used widely in both the food and the perfume industries as both flavoring and fragrance.  There is not enough natural supply (from the extract of the vanilla bean or other natural sources) to meet the demand, so synthetic vanillin, instead of natural vanilla extract, is sometimes used as a flavoring agent in foods and pharmaceuticals.  Natural vanilla extract is a mixture of several hundred different compounds in additional to vanillin, while artificial vanilla flavoring is a solution of pure vanillin, often of synthetic origin.  Vanillin is used also as a chemical intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals and other fine chemicals, and an important part of the worldwide vanillin production is used in the synthesis of other chemicals. As a raw material, it is usually supplied in crystal or crystalline powder forms.

A leading Asian flavors and fragrances producer was exporting bulk vanillin ingredients by sea and by air, in 25 kg liner bags packed inside a standard fibre drum.  They were interested in improving their image with upgrade packaging and also improving the efficiency of costly transport by seafreight and airfreight.


Darbox stepped in with the perfect solution to replace their current fiber drums. The solution – the 52 liter SquarePack™ container to pack the 25 kg liner bags.  The company improved their image by using an all-white container and lid combination, reflecting the purity and high quality level of their products. Their new SquarePack container maximizes the pallet footprint and provides a cost-effective solution, conical so they and their client can nest one inside the other when empty, and can stack up to 3 m high when filled with product.

The UN certified 52L square-shaped container provides a user-friendly, secure and reliable packaging solution.  The plastic 100% recyclable material is resistant to moisture and other elements, and the press-on closure does not include the problematic metal clamp ring.

Now, the company can pack their product inside the heavy-duty 52L UN SquarePack container without risk of the former issues. The company image abroad is improved, the integrity of their products is assured, supply chain costs are improved due to minimizing transport and storage costs, and both the company and their customer benefit.
