Nampak – The M&S Packaging



Because Nampak Cartons Europe constantly strives to achieve outstanding packaging solutions, we are recognised throughout the industry as innovators in our field. Our success is regularly recognised by our peers.

Marks & Spencer Sandwich Pack

2006 Awards

Our unique cartonboard sandwich pack, produced for U.K. retailer Marks & Spencer has received a multitude of awards this year. The patent-pending sandwich pack, a joint development between Nampak Cartons and Marks & Spencer, incorporates an easy-to-open zip at the rear that allows it to open out into a plate. It also opens conventionally at the front.

The carton features a clear NatureWorks PLA (polylactide) window, which is made from maize. The cartonboard used in its construction is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) accredited.


This annual competition, run by the Institue of Packaging, rewards the very best in print and packaging design and manufacture, and Nampak Cartons were delighted to received three Starpacks this year, together with a Pro Carton sponsored award, all for the Marks & Spencer cartonboard sandwich pack.
