NEW FOR 2018 : The QUICK BOTTLE "Plus" range
With more than 3.1 million Quick Bottles sold worldwide, this innovative anti-theft protection is our Best-Seller. It is now used by all hypermarket chains in France as well as internationally because our products are patented worldwide. Following feedback from stores, we offer a revisited version of this product that we previewed at the NRF show in New York (2018). Thanks to the increase in its diameter, this anti-theft device becomes universal as it is compatible with wine, champagne and spirits. The size of the ferrite has been increased for better detection as has the thickness of the plastic for more security. The metal version has been reinforced to make it very resistant. The ergonomics of the product has been improved to make it easier to place and hold on the bottle.
The Quick Bottle respects your products and allows you to save time on the shelf and at the checkout. Time is money !

PRESS REVIEW // Article in the English daily newspaper l'Express
Inflation and rise of shoplifting in France
Thoonsen is quoted in an article published by Maria Ortega in the English daily newspaper l'Express : "Shoplifting offences are soaring in France, as more and more elderly people steal 'butter or cheese'."
Due to the increase in shoplifting incidents, cashiers have doubled their vigilance. Jacky Thoonsen, manager of Thoonsen, says : "A new demand in France today is for the protection of cans, sausages or tins. For 30 euros of anti-theft devices, I can protect 250 euros of goods for ten years."
Ludovic Jouaud, manager at E. Leclerc Cap Sud, in Saint-Maur (Indre - France), is confronted with quasi-professional individuals. But over the past year, because of inflation, there have been new profiles of thieves : "Currently, it's more of an elderly person, a pensioner, [who steals] his butter packet, his piece of cheese, his slice of ham, basic products that are experiencing a small increase." In one of the videos recorded by TF1, a man steals a bottle of shampoo, while he is filmed by a hidden camera.
