Food Grade Products

As one of the leading plastic food packaging manufacturers in the UK, we understand food-grade polythene should form an essential part of your food safety management system. This system is crucial for preventing cross-contamination and food poisoning. Basic food hygiene standards have to be adhered to throughout the manufacturing stage through to stocking the products on the shelves. As a consequence, there are significant legal obligations for anyone who manufactures or supplies food. As a food manufacturer or trader, you have a duty to be aware of the laws surrounding food hygiene and it is vital that these laws are maintained throughout your supply chain. This means obtaining the most suitable packaging materials for the storage and transportation of your products.

Food grade polyethylene film can be used to protect the quality, freshness and life of your product, as well as your brand.

Shrink Pallet Covers

Shrink-wrap pallet covers or shrink hoods are placed over the product and shrunk to completely seal and protect the pallet. This offers comprehensive protection for our customers’ products.

Not only do they provide load stability and pallet protection during transportation, they also protect the product from contaminants.

Non-Shrink Pallet Covers

Also referred to as dust covers. They are easier to apply as they can be applied manually without the requirement of heat-treating machinery.

Non-shrink covers are ideal for fast paced working environments such as construction sites, warehouses and other industrial facilities. Goods can be covered and uncovered efficiently during use. Whilst unsuitable for the transportation of goods, nonetheless they provide basic protection for the product.

Stretch hoods are now one of the fastest growing solutions for pallet protection. Spanning across a wide range of industries, including white goods and the building industry, this type of protection is cost effective and incredibly efficient for securing bulky units and loads.

It can protect the pallet from contaminants and provide a good holding force for the transportation of goods.
