Retail Food Packaging
We collaborate with our customers to understand requirements and support you with our specialist knowledge of retail food packaging.
Retail Food Packaging Partner
We have extensive experience of working with food manufacturers and packers and have developed some of the first innovations in cartonboard food packaging.
Proactive supply chain management allows us to provide the highest possible service levels throughout your product lifecycle. Our agile manufacturing facility offers flexibility to suit retail product development timelines, in line with seasonality. Our factory is based in the UK which enables full control of our production, shorter lead times, and the provision of on-going supply.
Items from our off-the-shelf stock range can be utilised for recipe reviews, tastings, and in-store trials. Our products deliver optimal merchandising to represent brand value though high performing materials and enhanced packaging technology. We have a creative approach to on-shelf impact too, be that through packaging design, custom print, or fully bespoke food packaging solutions.
Quality and Sustainability
We understand how vital quality standards and sustainability practices are in the retail food market and prioritise these in the development of our food safe packaging. Our AA BRCGS certification demonstrates our commitment to food safety standards and our Sedex membership reinforces our supply chain due diligence.
Our quality and sustainability specialists monitor UK and European regulations to advise and support on-pack labelling and claims on recycling and waste management. We utilise FSC® and PEFC certified materials, guaranteeing sustainability from source.
Our products are migration tested to ensure they are food safe and suitable for use in retail displays such as chilled and hot-hold cabinets, and for regeneration in microwaves and ovens. All our product claims can be backed up by declarations of conformity for their associated usages.
Packaging Design and Materials
Our packaging design team acts as a seamless, specialist addition to your business. Our in-house experts can advise you on optimum materials and coatings for retail food packaging and can provide solutions that work effectively in food manufacturing and packing environments.
For customers seeking something unique, we can develop custom retail packaging with you to suit your exact requirements. Our team uses the latest board materials and coatings to create innovative construction designs for packaging to suit seasonal recipes and speciality ranges, and impactful print designs for new product launches.
Retail Food Packaging Versatility
Our extensive off-the-shelf range is extremely versatile to cover a wide variety of food types. Many of our core product lines also have numerous usages including chilled display, hot-hold, and reheating in-store or at home. This maximises the scope of our packaging for the retail marketplace across different categories and throughout the supply chain.
Retailers often require multiple display options within one packaging solution. For example, we worked with Greencore to create a custom version of our Stagione® products to showcase a range of cold and hot eat salads for a high street retailer.
Lots of our packaging can also be utilised for longer shelf-life recipes too. Food contents can be preserved using our tight-fitting lids or sealing our packs using heat sealing machinery, which even offers Modified Atmosphere Packaging solutions.
