Food Packaging


Custom branded cardboard food boxes for the food & takeaway industry

Packaging for the food industry often requires specialist solutions. You need to be aware of several extra considerations including hygiene and materials suitable for holding chilled or frozen goods.

Demand is everything in the food industry; some of our larger clients' operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so we must make sure that all our food packaging supplies are readily available for next day call off and just in time delivery.

How can Packaging Supplies help?

We offer a remote vendor ordering and just in time production.  This means orders can be placed at any time during the day or night, for next working day delivery. This enables clients to minimise additional storage costs as well as adjust stock instantly to accommodate peak production times.  This service applies to our entire range of stock and customer specific packaging, it is utilised extensively by our food manufacturing customers.

Standard or Custom Food Packaging?

We do stock some standard cardboard food packaging solutions, such as a range of bakery trays and take away carry boxes. However most of our food packaging lines are made to order based on client specific criteria, they include bespoke sizes of cardboard trays, take away boxes and often include printed shelf ready packs.

We can manufacture and customise your food packaging from our existing designs by simply changing the measurements to fit your products and altering the material to produce a more suitable pack. We can then print and brand the packaging to fit your exact requirements.

Points to consider

Your average supermarket now carries between 15,000 and 16,000 individual products or SKU's. A customer visiting a retail outlet usually once a week will select on average between 30 or 40 items from the vast selection on display. Standing out from the competition, especially at busy shopping times, is therefore vital for food manufactures.

How to make sure your products are among the top 30 to 40 items shopped
