The Detmold Packaging Group was founded by Mr Colin Detmold in 1948 as a specialist converter of paper and board based products. Today, the Group is one of the largest manufacturers of paper and board packaging products globally.
Detpak was formed in 1981 as the sales and marketing arm of the Group, dedicated to the foodservice industry. We expanded from Australia into the Singapore market in 1984, followed by South Asia in the late 1980’s and China and North Asia in the mid 1990’s. As the business grew, Detpak expanded into the Middle East in the late 1990’s and into South Africa in the early 2000’s. Today, our network spans Australia, New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South Africa. As part of the Detmold Group, we have 75 manufacturing facilities and 18 sales offices across the globe.
Detpak was the first to bring waxed wraps to the Australasian market. In fact, we have brought many leading product innovations to the market. Ripple-Wrap™, the insulated hot cup which continues to set the benchmark within the coffee-to-go market, food pails with wire handles and cartons and bags with windows designed to optimise the presentation of food.
Detpak is now regarded as a leading packaging manufacturer globally as we offer an extensive range of paper and board packaging solutions including cups, lids, cartons, bags, napkins, trays and clams. Our world class design and printing services has earned us a reputation as a provider of high quality, custom printed packaging solutions.
