Community and people


Corporate social responsibility is a big phrase for a very simple idea – taking care of the community in which we operate. Detpak is proud to take care of its workers and the community in which we operate. We welcome the regular social accountability audits from our global customers.

Ethical practices

Detpak takes pride in being a manufacturer, not simply an importer. We’re proud of the products we make, but we’re equally proud of the way we operate in our plant.

We work to a strict Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, which covers fair wages and working conditions that are consistent with the needs and expectations of our global customers. We pass more than 10 independent audits each and every year from customers and independent bodies.

We focus on areas including fair hiring practices; safe working hours; no child labour; fair compensation and benefits; and workplace safety in all our manufacturing facilities.

Building relationships

Detpak forms part of Mpact as one of the leading paper and plastics packaging manufacturing businesses in Southern Africa as well as the leading recycler of recovered paper and plastics. Through our local connectedness we are able to facilitate introductions and manage relationships beyond our immediate operations.

We aim to add value to our customer relationships, community relationships and the environment.


As a company deeply entrenched in the South African landscape, Detpak chooses to positively impact our community through focusing on long term initiatives impacting communities in a sustainable way.

Our recent initiatives include:

African Spirit Collection

Our African Spirit hot cup collection is using the power of coffee to support positive social change, with R10 per carton sold donated to this school in Soweto. Learn more about the African Spirit Cup
