Since the previous edition in 2017, Dijkstra Plastics have been busy finalising its merger with HK Plastics. This year, thanks to further developments and other things, the name of Dijkstra Plastics will proudly shine on the stand, exhibiting an extensive selection of its product range!
This year, as we did on previous occasions, we are committed to making a lasting impression and add a number of new elements in fields in which we excel and stand strong. Together with our current clients, we are working on sustainable packaging solutions and we look forward to this year with pride.
We look forward to seeing you at Interpack 2021! You can find us in Hall 10, stand A17.

Measures around the COVID-19 virus
In recent weeks, the number of infections with the COVID-19 (Corona) virus has increased significantly throughout the world. Dijkstra Plastics has prepared itself to map and mitigate the consequences of an outbreak for our organization. Within the organization, a team has been set up to monitor developments on a daily basis and take relevant measures.
New website: Dijkstra Plastics has decided to renew its online presence and to further intensify it
Since the acquisition of HK Plastics in 2016, two separate websites have been kept online: both the Dijkstra Plastics website and the HK Plastics website. In the beginning, this was important to guarantee the continuity of receiving and welcoming visitors. Later on, however, with the further integration of the two companies, it was decided to work towards a single website.
Certificering: Dijkstra Plastics to continue to hold BRC AA status and FSSC accreditation in 2020
To guarantee food safety and quality standards, both production sites and its warehouses were subjected to an audit. During this audit for BRC Packaging and FSSC 22000 standards, all internal quality processes were tested. This year, like previous years, Dijkstra Plastics past all tests
The 2021 Interpack trade fair can be visited in Düsseldorf from 25 February to 3 March 2021. Here at Dijkstra Plastics, the preparations for this event are in full swing. Interpack is the event where packaging takes centre stage. Machine manufacturers, raw material suppliers and packaging manufacturers will all be present during this international trade fair, showcasing a variety of their products and accessories.
The number of requests coming in at Dijkstra Plastics have been growing in recent years. Part of these requests involved low-quantity purchases, which we were unable to deal with. After identifying this growing opportunity, we started to explore the possibility of setting up a web shop to be able to provide even more users with our packaging buckets.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC)introduced this certification programme in 1998. The programme focuses on food safety and quality within an organisation. A company is tested on more than 300 aspects to check to what extent it meets the standard that is set. A rating indicates to what degree a company complies with the GSFI-recognised standard of the BRC.
Aspects such as traceability, cleanliness, operational control, training and management of suppliers are included, which together form the basis of the BRC. Thanks to the name that the BRC has built up, it has been a reputable name in the world of certification programmes for years and we are proud to be able to show our results within this programme.
The FSSC 22000 Standard has been created through Stichting Certificatie Voedselveiligheid (SCV). As a food-oriented version of the ISO 22000 Standard, this certification programme has been set up as a global guideline in food safety and quality within various industries. This standard is aimed at the entire production chain and as such, it is ideally suited for international harmonisation, partly thanks to the recognition by the GFSI. In addition to its connection with ISO 22000, the FSSC 22000 has many comparisons with the HACCP criteria, making it an attractive variant with the best of both worlds from these programmes. Thanks to the internationally accepted nature of the FSSC and the chain-wide approach within this certification programme, we recognise a strong food safety management system in this standard.
