is a British designer and manufacturer of food packaging products. Established 80 years ago next year, the company has since gained an international reputation as a leader in innovative food packaging solutions.
The company started in 1937 as Frank Coleman (Luton) Ltd, supplying stitched boxes to the hat trade, in a town whose football team was famously known as “the Hatters”. Over the following years, the next developments were the installation of printing machinery and a range of rigid box converting equipment which took the company into the sector of toys, gifts and games.
The opening of the first McDonalds restaurant in Britain prompted the company to take a fresh look at the marketplace. In the early 1980s, the company developed a range of basic products which it presented at the first Fast Food Fair in Brighton. From then on the Colpac brand was born and today our stock range of innovative food packaging disposable products numbers over 600 different items.
