Protecting the environment through innovative packaging
NEW! Paper-based tape
As part of our ongoing aim to increase the sustainability of the boxes we produce, as of July 2023 we’ve replaced our red Rippatape® with a new paper-based alternative, free of films and laminates!
Making the switch to this recyclable tape means we can reduce the plastic content in the boxes we produce without compromising on quality, and all while ensuring your products remain secure.
As a forward-thinking business, we are committed to protecting the environment. Our environmental policy underpins the quality of the products and services we provide; through continuous monitoring, we aim to reduce our environmental impact with the goal of becoming carbon neutral.
We are FSC® certified, allowing us to identify, purchase and use wood, paper, and other forest products made with sustainable materials in all our packaging products. We are a member of Sedex, have a bronze sustainability rating with EcoVadis, and we are BRCGS certified for direct contact food packaging.
Minimising pollution through the efficient use of materials, supplies and energy is at the heart of our environmental policy. We reduce the energy used in heating our manufacturing facilities by recycling the warm air drawn from the machines when the waste is being extracted, and we ensure that all waste materials are recycled across our three UK manufacturing sites. Our factories are fitted with motion sensory lights and we have installed electric car charging ports for staff and visitors.
We design appropriate packaging for each of our customers with the correct board grade for their product needs, utilising Dynamic Stiffness Testing (DST).
During manufacture, we utilise a Zero Crush conversion process which maintains the integrity of the board and enhances the print quality. Our corrugated board is sustainably produced using a high percentage of recycled materials, and we are proud to source FSC® approved material for all of our customers.
