About us

We supply the food industry by offering films, laminates, bags, casings and labels.

Get to know us!

At the heart of our company is an incredible love of food. And the realisation that a culinary product requires unique and safe packaging in addition to exceptional taste. It was this thought that gave rise to the family flexographic printing house.
Today, we use state-of-the-art technology, employ 190 people, you can find our packaging in every shop in Poland, and we export to 30 countries. One thing remains the same: we continue to base our values on a sense of community and partnership.

We supply the food industry with films, laminates, casings and labels for the meat, fish, dairy, confectionery and pet food industries. Our services are comprehensive: we create graphic designs, help select the appropriate packaging structure, produce the packaging, and our technical advisor helps implement it on the customer’s packaging machines.

Eliminating

food waste

  • 1/3 of the food produced in the world never reaches its destination, becoming waste along the way*
  • in 2020 in the European Union 131kg of food/per capita was wasted*
  •  in 2020 in Poland 106kg of food was wasted per inhabitant*.

We know that there are many factors that contribute to the above statistics. We want to influence their improvement. Our role is to provide packaging that protects and preserves food to keep it healthy and edible for as long as possible.

Environment

We are committed to ensuring that both the operation of PAK and the products we manufacture have as little impact on the environment as possible.
We have implemented environmental measures to prevent pollution and waste of resources. We have submitted an environmental report demonstrating our achievements to date and outlining a plan of pro-environmental measures for the coming years, resulting in the Cleaner Production Certificate.
The Research and Development Department has implemented mono-material laminates for many customers and is continually testing further mono-material designs. We create packaging that is both aesthetically pleasing, safe and recyclable. In addition, we are successively reducing the thickness of the packaging, which has a huge impact not only on ecology, but also – economics.

1990

Establishment of PAK

PAK is a family business, founded in October 1990. The originator and founder of PAK is Witold Karbowski.
Our history begins in a small room in Toruń’s Rubinkowo district. It was here that a dozen or so people recruited by the charismatic leader began working under the common name of “PAK”.
The driving force behind the company at this time is the printing of casings, as well as the sale of spices and small butchery equipment.

1994

New company headquarters

PAK grows rapidly, and in 1994 – moves to a hall on Wielki Rów Street in Toruń. The company moves towards the goals set by the boss, and to make this path prudent and peaceful – hiss wife, Maria Karbowska, joins PAK’s management. More employees are quickly recruited and PAK becomes the region’s leader in supplying butchers and caterers.

Start of label printing

We are mainly active in the meat and dairy industry. We print and sell casings, but we see huge potential in label printing – we buy our first narrow web flexo printing machines.

2001

A year of major investments

The PAK Group is established and Kalibra, a casing company, joins the group. The paths of PAK and ATRA, the Graphic Printing Factory in Toruñ, founded in 1922, are intertwined! PAK’s owners buy the company, which is going out of business, so ATRA’s employees keep their jobs and PAK gets new production space.

New company headquarters

PAK moves entirely to Towarowa Street, where it is currently located.
