Lee Kum Kee Chooses Flexible Packaging from Scholle IPN

About Lee Kum Kee

Lee Kum KeeKnown for their sauces and condiments, Lee Kum Kee was founded in 1888 in the Guangdong Province of China when its founder, Mr. Lee Kam Sang, invented oyster sauce. Since then, their mission has been to promote Chinese cuisines worldwide, which they have done successfully with over 200 options in over 100 countries globally. With the world shifting their perspective to a more circular economy, Lee Kum Kee was looking for a package format that could reduce their impact on the environment.

Partners for Success

Industrial Bag-in-box alternativePreviously in an unlined 220-liter (55-gallon) drum, Lee Kum Kee was seeing lower product yields and a shorter shelf life. After searching for a different product format that could mitigate their concerns, our industrial bag-in-box was chosen for their oyster sauce. Due to the nature of our bag-in-box packaging, they see increased yields as the package collapses on itself to aid in product evacuation. With our patented flexible barrier films and aseptic-capable 3400™ cap, both Lee Kum Kee and their consumers can have peace of mind that their favorite oyster sauces are as fresh as the day they were crafted.

With our aseptic packaging technology, Lee Kum Kee knew they could offer the best-quality product without worrying that safe stock. Plus, with bag-in-box, you’ll see improved logistics as it provides better cube efficiency and uses less material to ship more product.

Better for You. Better for the Environment.

Fitting in well with one of their core values, “Benefitting the Community,” Lee Kum Kee found many benefits in the switch to bulk flexible packaging:

  • Flexible liners allow reuse of rigid bulk containers.
  • Optimized product-to-package ratio leaves minimal waste volume – in fact they saw up to a 15% increase in yield rates!
  • Less resources used to clean and service bulk containers – they reduced the water used in this process by up to 70%!
