Elegant plant boxes from Danish start-up company SQUARELY feature UniPak containers from Berry Superfos which incorporate post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.
SQUARELY crafts and sells a series of beautiful plant boxes which help to enhance the indoor working climate with minimal effort and maintenance. The outer design is made from leftover wood, such as from high-end furniture products, while the inside contains a water tank, a capillary self-watering system and the UniPak box, into which the plant is placed. Importantly, the UniPak solution incorporates 30% recycled PP (polypropylene).
CEO and Architect Agne Szwarczewska is the originator of SQUARELY. She is very content with the recent collaboration with Berry Superfos. Previously, SQUARELY collected used UniPak plastic containers in the appropriate size mainly from Copenhagen restaurants. The containers were then sorted and cleaned to become the inner waterproof lining of the wooden plant boxes. However, this process required time, transportation, and lots of water, which is resource intensive.
Agne Szwarczewska therefore got in touch with Berry Superfos directly to explore other options and found the ideal fit:
“As Berry Superfos sources huge amounts of clean post-consumer recycled material for producing new packaging products, it is a much better solution to purchase the UniPak container with PCR directly from Berry Superfos,” she explains. “It is a perfect match and an integral part of our sustainable plant boxes. The containers are clean, come in the right size and are ready to be included in our plant boxes. This is a clear advantage, as the new supply chain setup greatly improves our production efficiency.”
The incorporation of recycled material into the UniPak container is an important part of Berry’s Impact 2025 sustainability strategy and underlines the company’s commitment to work with customers to help meet and exceed their sustainability goals.
“Plastic is a valuable resource; developing containers with recycled content demonstrates how the material can contribute to the circular economy while still offering the versatility to create practical and functional solutions,” comments Nordic Regional Director Søren Marcussen of Berry Superfos. “As such, the UniPak container has provided the ideal complement for these sustainable plant boxes.”
The plant boxes are available in a variety of natural colours and textures, and are shipped to Europe, with Denmark, Germany and UK as the top three markets. SQUARELY has a successful online shop which, during the pandemic, proved to be vital.
“Like almost any business, we were affected by the lockdown in 2020, yet these days we see a growing interest for our indoor climate offerings,” Agne Szwarczewska concludes. “Lots of people want to create a pleasant working space for their home office or use plants in boxes to outline the office space. Also, several companies buy our products to ameliorate the indoor climate or to add zest to a recreational outdoor area. We are very pleased to contribute to this with our products and look forward to continuing our journey with Berry Superfos as our trusted supplier.”
A change of format for family-size packs of ice cream wafers from standard printed carton boxes to plastic buckets from Berry Superfos is delivering a number of important benefits for leading Romanian ice cream manufacturer TOPGEL. These include better shelf stand-out, enhanced logistics, and the opportunity for consumers to repurpose the packs.
A refillable and airtight container with a resealable cap fitted in the lid makes it easier to maintain a high level of hygiene with wipes. By popular demand, Berry Superfos has developed a series of wet wipes containers and Hitam, a French chemical consultancy, is among the highly satisfied customers.
Recycled material is worth its salt
A winter scenery in Switzerland looks like something from a fairy tale, but the reality is that Swiss roads must always be accessible. De-icing salt from Schweizer Salinen makes it happen, and now, in support of sustainability, the salt comes in a SuperCube pail made with 30% PCR content (post-consumer recycled). The reusable pail is developed and produced by Berry Superfos.
Three reasons to sell wafers in Berry Superfos buckets
One of the biggest ice cream producer in Romania, TOPGEL, sells more than just ice cream. Tasty, crispy wafers are in the product range, and now they are being sold in large quantities in plastic buckets from Berry Superfos that have three great benefits
Non-Carbon Black Masterbatch Increases Recycling Capabilities with Superfos

Kata Food: Shape and Success are Well Connected
A different packaging shape and fabulous artwork decoration have led to optimised logistics and excellent shelf standout for olives and more from Italian Kata Food. The family owned business has success on several European markets, now reinforced with the square SuperCube pail from Berry Superfos
The circular economy is in full swing: material once considered as waste, is used to create products of higher value. Like in this case, where off cuts from a Berry Superfos facility in Denmark via a recycler become biological filters for water purification in aquaculture. That’s good for the environment and an example of responsible use of resources
Berry Superfos makes significant contribution to Berry Global’s 2020 sustainability success
Berry Global Group, Inc., the parent company of Berry Superfos, spotlights the whole Group’s many sustainability achievements from fiscal year 2020 in its recently released 2020 Impact Report. The progress is also of benefit to customers of Berry Superfos
Cans are traditional, and traditions are often hard to let go of. However, Cargill Brazil is very pleased with a packaging conversion in collaboration with market leader Berry Superfos from traditional metal to contemporary plastic for immensely popular Elefante tomato paste. Cargill Brazil values the technical expertise of Berry Superfos
The innovative SuperLight container from Superfos, has proved the ideal pack for the new MakeGusto range of tasty Italian ready meals that are easy to prepare and can be enjoyed on the move. SuperLight uses a clever combination of plastic and cardboard to provide a user-friendly solution for the products where boiling water is added to the ingredients to create each meal.
The right type of packaging is a powerful form of marketing. This has been ideally demonstrated by a unique pack and display solution developed and produced by Superfos, a Berry Global company, for Al Wefag Trading & Manufacturing Company, one of Saudi Arabia’s leading producers of quality sweet and savoury snacking products.
Tub delivers lighter weight and improved performance
A new tub from Berry Superfos for one of the UK’s most popular spreadable butters has achieved a 9% weight reduction while delivering increased efficiency on the filling line and incorporating an attractive new look. The need for new tooling for the production of the 500g polypropylene tub for Arla Foods UK’s Anchor Spreadable brand resulted in the company re-evaluating the tub and the processes connected to it.
The switch from black to semi-clear plastic for a cake tub has had a significant impact on the pack’s sustainability profile. Thanks to the change, the 1080ml tub manufactured by Berry Superfos, for a range of cakes produced by Park Cakes for leading food retailer M&S can now be described as ‘widely recyclable’ in the UK.
Sweet success with striking tubs
Tangerine Confectionery was looking for a high-quality, colourful, and creative pack to re-launch its Barratt seasonal range of the UK’s favourite sweets. The vivid colours of the SuperLift® tubs, made of widely recyclable polypropylene, provide strong shelf standout and have generated fantastic in-store backing with feature space and promotional support, which has led to an increase in demand for the sweets.
In conjunction with its label supplier Korsini SAF, Superfos, a company of Berry Global, has received an award for Best Label Design at the 2019 IMDA Awards in the United States. The winning label is made for Heinz for its Cream of Tomato Pot Soup and Vegetable Pot Soup sold in a 400ml SuperLock container that showcases the cutting-edge In-Mould Labelling technique from Superfos.
Italian company Carioca SpA has chosen Superfos, a company of Berry Global, for their ability to provide different-shaped and sustainable pack solutions. Carioca saw an opportunity to step up its offering by changing the shape of the packaging for 48 Jumbo felt-tip pens from a round container to a square UniPak pail from Superfos’s standard range.
A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.
