We are experts in both manual and mechanised packing, offering cost-effective solutions to every packing need large or small. We respond rapidly to changes in consumer demand and customer requirements.
We are one of the most innovative independent contract packers/contract manufacturers in the United Kingdom. We were the first in the country, for example, to offer automated clip-stripping services.
In recent years we have invested £millions in packing machinery and systems, and now boast some of the most sophisticated equipment on the market. We also invest in real-time traceability and quality assurance systems.
Operations are supported by relevant certifications including BRC, Sedex and Organic Farmers & Growers. We are also accredited by leading retailers Tesco, Asda, Co‑op, Sainsbury's and Morrisons.

10. Environmental support
We are continuously making improvements to reduce our impact on the environment and prevent pollution. Under our environmental policy we segregate and recycle everything we can including all waste cardboard and plastic.
11. Added value services
We print/apply labels, including ingredients lists and barcodes, and print dates and codes directly on to packaging. Other services include product/packaging inspection and auditing, re-packing and product/packaging rework and repair.
Our dedicated, fully racked and air-conditioned warehouses are integrated into our production facilities. They enable customers to bulk-buy their packaging materials and consumables cutting both purchase and transport costs.
