Packaging Supplying Companies in Cape Town 

There are plenty of packaging suppliers in SA that provide the best solutions for specific needs, and most suppliers are adapting their manufacturing work to fit multiple types of products. This makes packaging suppliers a vital part of the manufacturing process.

In the world of business today, companies are increasingly conscious that not just a wonderful product, but even product packaging is required to impress their customers. Whether a buyer buys a product online or in a store, the packaging is the first thing they see, and it may make a lasting impression on a brand.

Running a business successfully depends on packaging. It may mean the difference between making a sale and missing out on a chance.  As a result, the packaging supplier’s reputation becomes extremely important. 

Thus, brand trust is among the most valuable assets a company can possess. Ratings and reviews are therefore the most popular online feature used by customers to quickly make informed purchasing decisions. For this StarInsights report, we focused on packaging suppliers in Cape Town using ratings and reviews given by customers on Google Maps.

The best-rated packaging companies listed in the table have earned a StarInsights feature and are eligible for the eKomi trust seal.

However, it can be noted from the findings that most suppliers are not investing in improving their online presence and reputation management. As such, we expect better from the Cape Town packaging supplying companies, as we will be conducting a more extensive appraisal in the next three months. 

Companies are advised to collaborate with agencies like eKomi, which can assist in creating positive reviews that are encouraging and reflective of the establishment’s services.
