Bepakt is a young start-up innovating the re-usable food container.
At this moment we are still in a pre-protype phase, but on this website we already share some of our research with you.
“How can we make grocery shopping at packaging-free supermarkets as intuitive as possible?”

We started ‘Bepakt’ to design the next-generation of food/non-food containers. We visited shops, discussed with customers, brainstormed, sketched and studied. We passed the following milestones:
- May 2014: Defining the Design Pillars
Bepakt was founded on the idea to design a sustainable food container to simplify packaging-free grocery shopping. We started to collect and research the most interesting (re-usable) containers currently on the market. We defined out design pillars: sustainably produced, light, foldable, leak-proof, food safe, bicycle friendly, plastic-free, and more..
- July 2014: Executing a Customer Survey
We visited visited Robuust (Antwerp, Belgium) and executed an on-site customer survey research, using iPads, to learn about the wishes of the customers and the shop.
- August 2014: Start of online research of (European) Packaging-Free Shops
- September 2014: Designed the Bepakt logo and elementary website ‘bepakt.com‘.
- October 2014: Released the first Map of Packaging-Free Shops in West Europe.
