PET bottles are one of the most common types of waste on our planet. Let’s give it a new life.

Recycling PET bottles is important because it helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, rivers, and oceans. This recycled PET material can be used to manufacture new products, such as clothing, carpets, bottles and…, thanks to the technology developed by QIUB, also grinders for salts and spices.

The use of grinders made from recycled materials gives value to waste by generating a real demand for this material. This encourages more and more companies and governments to focus on the collection and treatment of PET bottles, to value this waste and give it a new life, without the resulting product being excessively expensive (find out how to deal with inflation and stay sustainable).

At QIUB Packaging, SA we continue advancing in our commitment to carry out quality and sustainable management of our activity.

We specialize in the manufacturing and distribution of packaging products, and since our brand’s inception, we have had a strong commitment to the environment. That’s why in 2022, we decided to begin the process of obtaining ISO 14001 certification, an international standard that establishes requirements for an effective environmental management system and allows us to formalize our commitment to sustainability.

After intense work by the entire team, we have successfully passed the ISO 14001 certification. This allows us to demonstrate to our customers, suppliers, and collaborators that we are committed to protecting the environment and reducing our environmental impact.

At QIUB Packaging SA we continue to demonstrate our strong commitment to sustainability and the fight against climate change.

We’re pleased to announce that here at QIUB, in line with our strong commitment to sustainability and the fight against climate change, we have reduced and verified our carbon footprint in accordance with UNE EN ISO 14064-3:2019. In this manner we have become one of the first Spanish companies to voluntarily record our calculation of greenhouse gases in the National Registry of Carbon Footprint (RD 163/2014)

As packaging manufacturers, this enables us to consolidate our leading position in the manufacture of sustainable grinders for packaging salts and spices. We have proved our commitment and good practice by obtaining verification of the calculation and reduction of the carbon footprint linked to our manufacturing activity from 2018 onwards under the UNE EN ISO 14064-3:2019 standard.


At QIUB we have reduced our carbon footprint by -0.55% in the emissions ratio, despite having increased our turnover for packaging items by around +75% between 2018 and 2021, in the same period. This milestone has been achieved as a result of modernising most of the grinders in our range, moving towards using more sustainable materials such as PET instead of other materials such as PC, ABS and POM. Continue reading “QIUB PACKAGING REDUCES AND VERIFIES ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT”


At QIUB Packaging we have everything ready to present our wide range of grinders at the PACK EXPO International fair that will take place from October 23rd to 26th in Chicago, the main meeting place for the packaging industry in North America.

World Recycling Day

World Recycling Day is traditionally celebrated on May 17. This date, established by UNESCO, is an ideal day to try to make us all aware of our consumption habits.

Therefore, it is a day to focus on the origin of what we consume, but also on the waste generated by the consumption of human activity. Something that is becoming increasingly important in consumers’ purchasing decisions: What is the origin of what we buy? What will happen to the waste of what I am buying?

At QIUB we are aware of the importance of creating sustainable packaging. For this reason, when we develop new products, we do it thinking about their design, quality, and functionality, but above all in their sustainability. As a result of this eagerness to offer sustainable packaging, in 2020 Qiub Packaging launched the first salt and spice grinder made of 100% sustainable materials such as PET and r-PET, being the first company in the world to achieve this milestone.

Earth Day is a special day to reflect on the consequences of human activity on our planet so that we can take action to protect it.

Climate change caused by CO2 emissions, indiscriminate waste production, deforestation…, are just a few examples of the causes that can accelerate the rate of destruction of the planet.

Fortunately, there are many things that can be done to take care of Mother Earth, but we need to act now! Do you know how we can help you achieve this?

Time to Grill & Chill

It’s time to disconnect and prepare a delicious Grill

Everything you need for the BBQ season. Are you ready?

Especially in these frenetic days of this noisy world we need to take a break. And what could be better than preparing a good BBQ and spending time with our loved ones – there’s nothing better than adding salt and pepper to life!

Barbecue for many people is synonymous of good weather, family, good mood, and free time. And what do you need to prepare it?

Apart from sauces, meat and fresh vegetables, what a good barbecue must never be lacking are delicious spices and grinders that can grind them well to enhance the flavour of the ingredients.

That’s why at QIUB we have developed our XXL grinders, but also some other different formats of mills made out of sustainable materials, always considering our environment.

And why do we do this? Because in this way we add value to our customers’ products and to Nature.

How to deal with inflation and stay sustainable

As we approach the dates set, between 2025 and 2030, to meet the objectives of the European Strategy for Plastic in a Circular Economy, having sustainable packaging becomes increasingly important. For this reason, packaging becomes a strategic piece, not only for differentiation, but also for achieving a sustainable growth. This is a reality that we see every day in the main companies in the food sector. Leading companies which try to distance themselves from their competitors by offering their products in more sustainable packaging.

However, the continuous increase in the cost of raw materials, added to the exorbitant increase of energy costs, suggests that the change towards more sustainable packaging may be a difficult task due to the impact of inflation.

At QIUB PACKAGING we understand how important it is to choose a sustainable packaging solution, therefore we want to offer our customers sustainable grinders for spices and salts. In this way, we follow the 4R philosophy – Recyclable, Recycled, Renewable, Reusable- in order to cause the least possible impact on the planet. In this sense, we design the best proposal, adjusting to the budget and needs of our clients.

If you have wondered how to have sustainable grinders and make your brand shine at an attractive price, we have the solution for you. QIUB gives you the possibility of obtaining a sustainable solution now also with lower percentages of rPET (eg 30% and 50%) reducing the effect of inflation.
