About Me

PACKAGING DEVELOPER & STRATEGIST

I have more than 20 years of experience working with packaging development and strategy within companies, such as Sony Mobile, SonyEricsson, BRIO and Ericsson Mobile. Today, I help large and small, global and local companies to develop new packaging or to improve existing packaging.

I have both holistic and detailed knowledge of the whole packaging value chain, which helps me drive packaging projects without any loose ends.

Packaging is often thought of at the end of a new product project when very little time is left to spend on the packaging development. Shortcuts to save time sometimes work, but can often be very costly and, in the end, perhaps delay the product launch.

I would like to change this and help my clients make great sustainable packaging, produced efficiently at a reasonable cost, and on time.

A good packaging strategy and process improve the possibility to develop good packaging from the beginning without the need for shortcuts. I can assess your packaging process, find the obstacles and suggest a solution or a new process to improve the packaging flow.

Why Work With Me

DEVELOPMENT • STRATEGY & PROCESS • SUSTAINABILITY

My holistic and detailed perspectives of packaging make it possible for me to work with the whole packaging value chain to optimize cost, design and production for your packaging.

DEVELOPMENT

I can help your company develop new packaging or update outdated packaging. First, I define all your packaging requirements to establish which is the best packaging for you. Then I drive the development project from design & construction, suppliers and logistics, to kitting line and launch, in close cooperation with you. Specifications and packing instructions are made to secure the production. I can also help find new suppliers and materials from my global network.

STRATEGY & PROCESS

What is a packaging strategy? It could be an increased focus on sustainability or a need to improve the unboxing experience, but also a strategy to meet the growing e-commerce or a new kind of product models. Maybe your volumes have increased or decreased, and the packaging production must become more efficient. When you have a strategy, and a process to follow this strategy, you know that everyone involved has the same focus, and your goal will be easier to reach.

SUSTAINABILITY

If your product can’t be handled without packaging, the second-best solution is to design the packaging for sustainability from start. Apart from protecting your product, the package should be made with sustainability in mind, from sustainable materials, logistics, size & weight, shipping and production, but also social sustainability during the entire production process. I can help you find those solutions.

To develop great packaging,

you need to work with the whole packaging value chain

 – from idea to customer.

“I had a very positive experience working with with Cecilia ( Tofterö Packaging Development ) over the course of 18 months in which packaging was developed and refined, prototypes was produced and suppliers secured before we finally went into production. Cecilia was a reliable and self driven consultant to the project who did a lot of the communication and quality assurance with the supplier in China. I could not have been happier with her dedication, knowledge and flexibility to get our concept idea into reality in a sustainable paper only packaging solution.”
Patrik Nordström, Project Manager Hardware Development
“Vi skickar ofta ut förpackningsprover till våra kunder och hade därför ett behov av att skapa en snygg och praktisk transportlåda. Samtidigt som lådan ska skydda innehållet vid transport, så måste den kommunicera Flextrus kärnvärden och även ge mottagaren en trevlig upplevelse vid öppnandet.
Tofterö antog utmaningen på bästa sätt och har bidragit med stor kunskap, kreativitet och energi. Vi fick hjälp med allt från konstruktion och dekorer till offerter från tillverkare. Resultatet är en snygg och innovativ låda som skapar en wow känsla hos mottagaren – precis vad vi önskade!
Vi kan varmt rekommendera Tofterö för liknande uppdrag!”
Ronny Gimbe, Business Development Manager, Flextrus AB
To work with Cecilia is not only a pleasure for her great mood and energy but her skills, knowledge and network gives to her work a great effectivity and response time. She is into the smallest micro-metric detail but looks from an holistic point of view too. She comes on board as a strong team player. Highly recommended!!
Martin Chab, Ginger Diamonds Sweden AB
”I had the great pleasure of working with Cecilia in my last project and I was impressed by her attention to detail and quality, and her commitment to our customer’s needs. I would happily work with Cecilia again, and highly recommend her and Tofterö Consulting.”
Sven Young - Project Manager, Sigma Connectivity
Cecilia Tofterö helped us with designing and finding the right vendor to produce our retail box for our product called SENS. […] we had no idea on how to create a retail box, and we wanted to use one retail box for two different products, so the box had to be designed to fit two different interior fittings, which Cecilia made possible with a smart and optimized design. Tofterö also optimized the footprint and made the box as small as possible to cut waste. […] It’s obvious that we are very pleased with the service and the final product Tofterö.se delivered.
Joakim Uddenfeldt, Sigma Connectivity
“We are extremely happy to have Cecilia at Tofterö.se in our partner network to help us deliver IoT product development projects for clients such as seco tools. Cecilia does not only add domain expertise but she is also very flexible and easy to work with and delivers results quickly. “
