Why choose Detpak

Some of the biggest brands around the world choose to work with Detpak to develop customised packaging solutions. Major brands like KFC, McDonald’s, Burger King, Bokomo Botswanna and Nando’s know that when they work with Detpak, they benefit from our extensive production expertise and know-how, market responsiveness, and innovation.


Detpak takes pride in being a manufacturer, not simply an importer. Local manufacturing means we can respond efficiently to fluctuations in offtake and support your promotions. Operating from our BRC certified manufacturing base in Aeroton, Johannesburg, we partner with logistics suppliers and distributors nationally to provide our products to your doorstep – wherever that may be.

Our international network spans 5 continents and 23 sites through the Detmold Group. Global supply & technology agreements ensure that we are at the forefront of international trends and that you benefit from the insights and product development trends that a global player provide.

Level 1 BEE partner

Detpak forms part of Mpact, the largest paper and plastics packaging and recycling company in Southern Africa. Listed on the JSE, we hold a level 1 BEE score.

Quality you can count on

Quality to us means perfection, not “near enough is good enough”.

And it’s proven, by our long-standing relationships with market-leading brands including McDonald’s and KFC.

Our extensive knowledge of the industry, along with its fluctuations and nuances, puts us in a unique position to advise you on recyclability by design, global trends and attaining sustainability targets.

Ready to go range

With over 70 products in our ready-to-go food range, there’s a good chance if you need any of the below, they’re ready to go right now:

  • Take-away bags
  • Shopper bags
  • Retail bags
  • Cups and lids
  • Wraps
  • Charcoal Bags

And because many are available in plain or subtle designs, you can easily add finishing touches like ties, labels, and stamping to make them part of your brand.


Acknowledged for our innovative new product development at the Gold Pack industry awards with accolades received for the Detpak Take-away Delivery Bag and Southern Fruit Table Grape Bag, Detpak continues to focus on new product development, sustainability, print and service quality.

These awards help us attract and retain the most talented minds in the packaging business – and that’s what keeps us creating the solutions that will help you shine too.

Real responsibility

Corporate social responsibility can be a box-ticker, or it can be a genuine desire to take care of the communities and environments in which we operate.

As a South-African managed business, we take this part of our business just as seriously as we do our packaging – providing environmentally friendly paper and board products so that you can always make the responsible choice.

Detpak forms part of RecyclePaper, the extended producer responsibility organization of the paper and paper packaging industry, where we stand with industry partners to create solutions for life-end collection and recycling options. With our connections to Mpact Recycling, we aim to offer solid answers on recyclability and the likelihood of recycling.

So, yes, we're responsible. Really.
