The leading food and drink packaging company, Durham Box, has collaborated with long-standing customer Northumbrian Gifts to develop stand-out, sustainable packaging for their 3 x 500ml bottled beer products. Operating out of Ashington, Northumbrian Gifts is a family-run business celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. They offer a wide range of authentic, high-quality items from the local area, including beer, wine, cider, spirits, and local produce.

The packaging design, featuring a wrap-around historical map and local imagery, was crafted from 180cc/120bk e-flute and digitally printed on Durham Box’s Nozomi C18000 digital press. Utilizing a tuck-in top closure, the design not only showcases the technical capabilities of the digital press but also aligns with Northumbrian Gifts’ sustainability goals, being fully recyclable.

According to Katrina Wanless, business owner and director of Northumbrian Gifts, “The packaging developed by Durham Box embodies the essence of our brand and Northumbrian heritage. It’s not only practical and eco-friendly but also easy to wrap and carry, providing a secure fit for safe transportation.”

Sally Caton, from Durham Box, stated: “Working with Northumbrian Gifts is always a rewarding experience. This project allowed us to showcase our digital printing strengths and produce a package that stands out for its design, functionality, and environmental credentials.”

This collaboration underscores Durham Box’s ability to create sustainable, functional, and visually appealing food and drink packaging solutions, setting new standards in the packaging industry. Durham Box looks forward to continuing the fruitful relationship with Northumbrian Gifts, with exciting plans for a bespoke gifting range in 2024.

Based in County Durham, Durham Box is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of corrugated packaging, servicing large-scale accounts across multiple markets, particularly within the FMCG sector. As part of the Logson Group, the UK’s largest independent supplier of corrugated packaging, Durham Box is committed to providing sustainable food and drink packaging solutions.
