Our Story

Bonson’s story begins in 1984. Founded by the Tsui family as a small packaging company in a modest warehouse in Auckland, New Zealand, it has grown ever since. With a mission to create advantage in everything we do, all Bonson’s packaging solutions come with a different level of care – everyone genuinely cares about their collective contribution.

Today we are one of the leading food packaging suppliers and manufacturers in Australasia, providing diverse product ranges that are in high demand. Our innovation and manufacturing capabilities are internationally recognised by the food industry. We are proud to be supplying Australasia’s big and small food companies to help them create advantages through innovative packaging.

Over 35 years, 8 brands, thousands of products - one belief

From a small family of relatives to the now greatly extended Bonson team of 60 'family' members, we remain a family run business and the original core values on which the business was built are still central to the business. Our values are integrated in how we approach service, innovation and sustainability. Our commitment of 'honouring our customers' greatest potential is what serves our own' fuels our continued success in providing the best in innovative food packaging solutions throughout Australasia.
