New corporate identity as from 1st of January 2023
As a consequence of an evolving strategy, PortionPack Group (previously PortionPack Europe Group) has revised her appearance. In the recent years the division stepped into new markets and new regions.
Marco Geith (CCO) explains: “It’s about time to slightly change the name: we skip the word ‘Europe’ and focus on ‘portions’, ‘packing’ and bundling our strengths as a ‘group’ of companies. Together with the name change, we refresh our icon (previously a globe with Europe in the center). The grey circle reconfirms our global ambition, now with a red square in the center that expresses every enjoyable pack we bring to the world.
And some of our companies will even link this to a history that started with sugar cubes. Together the red and grey elements form the capital ‘P’, that stands for many words we feel connected to. First of all, Portions, Packing, Printing and Passion are in our hearts. With our sustainability strategy, we relate it in a balanced way to People, Planet and Profit. And one step further, we express our commitment to the Südzucker 2026 PLUS Strategy to get the Power of Plants.”
