Our range of Beer Boxes and Brewery Packaging should make this
easy. Don’t worry brewers we haven’t forgotten
about you, far from it. We feel we are a perfect fit for your requirements.
First things first let’s talk about the beer carry boxes that are in demand
within this industry.
Without a doubt the most important and
commonly used beer box is the 24-bottle box with dividers. This we carry as a
standard pack. This same style of box and dividers can be used for a variety of
different size bottle packs. With no extra cost it is something that we can customize
Can the Dividers come Assembled?
Let’s face it, nobody wants to stand there
making up dividers all day. There are a lot more important tasks to be
performed during your day. We can supply them assembled, so they just pop open and slot into the outer case.
Please just let us know your requirements.
Can I get my logo printed on these boxes?
The large majority of the breweries that we
look after have a 1 colour flexo print on their boxes, but we have many print options available which you can find more about here. So
the only start up cost is the paying for the printing stereo, which is a first
time only fee, if you want it printed. We normally suggest, get your self up
and running, adding artwork is very simple.
We have covered the transportation aspect
of brewery packaging, Now on to the important stuff, the boxes that are going
to help sell your product making it desirable.
Die cut boxes are made for this sort of
packaging, making the boxes in these styles mean additional features can be
added. Like a carry handle or a cut out on the front of the box to show your
fancy bottle labels. The feel can be altered depending on your product; it can
be brown or white Kraft outer finish with various different printing options
depending on your budget and usage.

big packaging mistakes that will see failure in the Peak season
It sounds incredibly sad however the peak
season, the lead up to Christmas will be soon upon us. Within this period
planning and forecasting is everything. Which is why you need to start now.
Failure to Plan: We think this is a very
good place to start, plan exactly what is required for the packaging of each
product. Before the busy season starts you should know exactly the average time
that it takes to pack each product, once you know this you can experiment with
packaging machines or other packing equipment to decide whether this will
assist in speeding up this process. This will then give you valued information
for the forecasting for the dispatching of orders and lead times of future orders.
See our Packaging Machines here.
Understanding your demand: This goes
hand in hand with planning, this is somewhere where even the largest of large
companies can come unstuck. Review you figures from the same quarter the
previous year with any expectations of growth or reductions this will help to
give you an understanding of what will be required.
3. Innovate where possible: The
Packaging Industry is so large, whether you are a
manufacturer, importer or have an online presence there will be a requirement
for packaging in some form. However,
there are very few packaging companies out there that are actually innovating.
The biggest reason for this is that it is cheaper to have a one size fit all
packaging. Take Korrvu packaging for example, we have standard sizes to fit
phones, iPad’s and many other products. We work hard to develop our online
range, so you know exactly what is out there, a snapshot into new products.
4. Be smart and respectful about
Packaging: The biggest mistake that is being made
at the moment is that packaging is only being considered within companies for
just their own benefit i.e. the one size fits all situations. The largest
retailer in the world has been guilty of this, Amazon are under more pressure
to reduce their packaging size and waste. How can you be respectful to
packaging? The respect comes when considering if the packaging is the right
size for the product and how easy it is for your customer to discard the
packaging. We have all been there trying to stuff empty pizza boxes into bins,
it isn’t enjoyable.
5. Be prepared for all
Outcomes: This is where Packaging Supplies comes
into its own. You need to see our warehouse as an extension of your own. Stock
and call off is so essential at this point once we have it in stock, we can dispatch
it to you on a next day delivery basis (on orders received before 3pm). It gets
even easier with your own customer log in, giving you instant stock checks and an
online ordering platform through the back office of our website.
5 mistakes are just the beginning, with over 35 years in business in this
industry we can help to save you time and money. So please feel free to catch up with one of
our friendly team today on 01491834000.

The time of cigarette packaging as we know it will change forever, the new tobacco directive will mean warning text, photos and information will cover 65% of the back and front of the cigarette packs. Companies have 12 months to sell all over stock and 4 years to sell all menthol cigarettes, which have been banned all together.
“This was a devastating defeat for big tobacco,” said Deborah Arnott, chief executive of Action on Smoking and Health, whose evidence submitted to the court was also shared with MPs before they debated the introduction of the regulation. “First Australia, now the UK and France, have gone ahead with removing all branding, except the name in a standard-size font. Coming up fast behind are Ireland, Hungary, Norway, Canada and New Zealand, with others soon to follow. Before too long, glitzy, brightly coloured and highly branded tobacco packs will be a relic of the past, which children born today will never see.”*

The shelf in which produce sit in the supermarkets and other retail
outlets is constantly evolving. Retail
and shelf ready packaging have become part and parcel of the shopper experience
over a large and varied range of industries.
We live in an era of the marketer; everything from strapping to
tape has become branded in the packaging world. Why shouldn’t the boxes supplied
to stores also offer promotion and generate sales. When you’re walking around a
supermarket, brands are looking for any in store touching points they can get!
This is why this style of packaging and marketing departments harmonies so well.
What is Shelf Ready
Packaging (SRP) or Retail Ready Packaging (RRP)?
The primary purpose of SRP is to ensure that products which are
packed in SRP are quickly and easily placed on the supermarket or shop shelf
without the need for any unpacking and re-stacking.
Shelf ready packaging comes in many forms and covers all types
of packaging specifically designed for retail.
Secondary purpose of shelf ready or retail packaging is to
collate and protect your products. To
qualify as SRP the packaging should be:
Easy to identify
Easy to open
Easy to dispose of
Easy to shelf
Easy to shop
These elements of SRP or RRP will help to successfully move your
products through the supply chain.
