SwissPrimePack at a glance

SwissPrimePack was formed in 2008 following the merger of Bellaplast with Albiplast – two leading Swiss companies specializing in the development and production of the highest quality food packaging.

With modern production facilities and over 50 years of expertise, SwissPrimePack develops and produces industrial packaging for premium brands in the fields of ice cream and dairy products, as well as service packaging for catering and fast-food restaurants and even the leading operators of vending machines. Naturally, made in Switzerland!

SwissPrimePack employs around 170 people at the Swiss production locations in Altstätten and Niederuzwil.

The company is still in the hands of private shareholders.

Milestones, over more than 50 years

SwissPrimePack can count on its proud history. The former Bellaplast, a pioneer enterprise in the development of multilayer films and products, produced coffee vending cups and disposable cups for the first time in Switzerland in 1970. These initial pioneering models can even be admired in the Museum of Design in Zurich!
