Uniplast Knauer GmbH & Co. KG

Uniplast has been developing and producing plastic cups for the dairy and food industries for over 50 years now. The company produces more than 2.5 billion cups a year using injection moulding and thermoforming processes. The cups are used primarily for yoghurt, desserts and cream cheese products. The wide selection of products come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, and a whole range of decoration methods are used. In addition to the standard range, which comprises more than 300 shapes, Uniplast’s experts also develop products to meet customer-specific requirements. The strengthened research and development team is working continuously on new ideas and innovations to take account of the need to reduce the use of plastics and to increase the use of recyclable packaging. The company is aiming to strengthen this area further over the coming years.
