Established 80 years ago, we design and manufacture creative, personalised food packaging products. Proud of our British heritage, we are based in Bedfordshire, a County in the East of England.
A private, independent company, operating from one, central manufacturing unit, we design, manufacture and sell a range of paperboard and combination packaging products, featuring strong green credentials, to food service operators and retailers globally.
Our company has been at the heart of the packaging industry for almost a century. We believe that an essential ingredient to our success is our ability to listen to our customers and adapt our products to suit changing market trends.
We have a dedicated, in-house team of creative and technical experts who work closely together to design, engineer and manufacture food packaging solutions. This enables us to not only deliver a personalised, efficient service, but also to create a solution which directly meets our customers’ needs.
“Years ago, packaging was merely functional and practical – a means to an end.
Unsurprisingly, things have moved on rapidly since then. The modern packaging industry helps to drive change, meet new environmental standards, and create products which are both eye-catching and lighter in weight.
As a supplier, we need to be at the forefront of this packaging revolution, continually providing innovative solutions to meet these challenges, and I’m proud to be at the helm of an independent, privately owned company that has played a key role in this sector for 80 years.”
