    About Du Caju Printing
    Du Caju Printing (www.ducaju.be) is located at Erpe-Mere and is a family enterprise with a proud history of printing food-safe folding cardboard packaging.
    Du Caju Printing’s roots can be traced back to nearly three centuries ago. Originally it was a general printer but since 1991, it has changed tack and it is now focusing more on the niche market of packaging (folding cardboard), processing folding cardboard into all kinds of consumers’ packaging. Currently, Du Caju Printing is managed by Tom Du Caju, a child of the eighth generation. He took over from his dad around 2000 and ever since then, the company has been very specifically investing in the packaging industry and it keeps on doing so in the industry’s latest technologies. Folding cardboard is used in both food and non-food industries for primary and secondary packaging. Du Caju Printing has all that is needed for designing, printing and finishing of folding cardboard boxes, presentation boxes, sleeves, displays, little envelope-shaped pockets, advertising material….
