How did Greif become the global leader in industrial packaging? The answer is simple: by minimizing risks. Our customers desire to work with a company that guarantees the secure supply of safe products. ‘Greif: the safe choice’ perfectly expresses our commitment to these values.

What makes Greif the safe choice? Three things are fundamental to Greif’s unique competitive advantage:

1.The first is Greif’s production excellence. We make sure that everything runs with the precision of a Swiss watch. The Greif Production System is a lean manufacturing mechanism. Every single step of the process is designed for maximum process and product security. Experts from our production consultancy group (the OSG) make sure that Greif standard best practices are in place.

2.The second factor is Greif’s global supply network. Our extensive back-up facilities enable us to guarantee security of supply. The vast amount of technical know-how we have accumulated over many decades has led to safer products, world class packaging consulting and a rapid efficient troubleshooting service.

3.Third and for most customers the most important factor is our corporate philosophy: The Greif Way. We pride ourselves on being fair, honest and ethical. That is how you can be sure that the recommendations we pass on to our customers are not influenced by short-term opportunities for our own financial gain. We never lower our standards, even in times of economic downturn. That is what honesty is all about.
