Service and reliability

Babta works with each customer to satisfy their unique needs and requirements. Because of our knowledge of the industry we are able to provide each client marketing support and advice beyond the packaging itself. We are dedicated to delivering on time and on budget, and will keep you fully advised through the full project from initial concept to final delivery.

Standards and sustainability

Babta is committed to ethical, quality and environmental standards. We are aware of the role that we play as manufactures of packaging and offer sustainable options for your consideration depending on your requirements.



“Our aim is to find the best mix of design, manufacturing process and materials that can reduce waste.”



Babta is pro-active in working to reduce our carbon footprint and are proud members of the Sustainable Business Network and the Instep programme. We actively encourage and promote sustainability practices within our working environment and believe that every little step makes a positive change.

Manufacturing quality

Babta Management regularly visits the overseas production facilities to ensure that they meet with our ethical, quality and environmental standards. Babta believes that the manufacture of its products should contribute to the social welfare and empowerment of workers. We have personally, ethically sourced and audited the factories in which our bags are made.


Successful Design

Well designed and executed packaging is a powerful communication tool when created strategically. A key part of what we offer to you is an intimate knowledge of packaging design and manufacture. This awareness allows us to create a bag that both looks great and functions as it is intended to. Success results from our ability to work with you to develop and supply packaging of superior quality and function.

Design and artwork flexibility

We can work directly with your creative designer to deliver a great result or alternatively Babta’s professional design service can take away the stress and expense of employing your own designer. When you use our experienced design team we will help you choose the best solutions for your specific requirements, while keeping a close eye on your budget and your brand message.

Exceptional production quality

Babta selects suppliers who work to a very high standard, whilst being cost effective and having an understanding of the New Zealand market. We inspect and review our suppliers as part of a regular process to make sure you are getting the best results and the quality remains very high. We personally see that our suppliers meet all your ethical and social expectations and that working conditions meet the developing world’s standards.

All our suppliers are ISO accredited and are monitored regularly by our Quality Control Company spot audits and our regular visits. Alternatives to the traditional plastic bag are now available, and we are proud to offer you biodegradable plastic bags that have undergone the ASTM Standards testing.

Warehousing and inventory support

Among Babta’s strengths is our ability to accurately control inventory stock levels and to distribute your packaging to you anywhere in New Zealand when you need it. We keep you informed of when to re-order, taking into account different delivery intervals throughout the year. Our warehousing and inventory services include monthly stock schedule reports, detailing deliveries and stock levels for reference and planning purposes.
