Packaging for Food and Drink

Food packaging box suppliers

Choosing the right packaging for food and drink, particularly if you sell any FMCG or perishable products, can be crucial to your business success.

Food packaging is designed specifically for storing, protecting and transporting food. It also plays a vital role in driving retail and supermarket sales. Food packaging can either be primary (in direct contact with the product) or secondary (such as shipping boxes transporting multiple smaller packs).

Whilst we do not manufacture packaging for direct food contact at GWP, we can still supply a wide range of packaging to improve your business performance. This includes single-trip and returnable transit packaging, delivery and subscription boxes, temperature-controlled packaging, and even retail point-of-sale displays. We have also supplied breweries and drinks producers with bottle packaging for over 30 years.

More info on packaging for food and drink

Sourcing eco-friendly corrugated packaging for food, drink, and fresh produce poses several unique challenges.

It needs to be hygienic. It needs to keep items fresh and presentable. It needs to transport items safely and prevent damage. Crucially – particularly with products with a limited shelf life – it must instantly capture consumers’ attention to drive sales.

Ticking all the boxes required by food packaging is a challenge that all food or drink producers encounter.

Challenges of food and drink packaging

Understanding that the fresh produce market, in particular, works to exceptionally tight deadlines and can see massive spikes in demand, GWP has developed a fully managed inventory service.

By accurately monitoring stock and usage patterns, we ensure your packaging is delivered precisely when you need it, reduce your stock holding, and prevent stock shortages, even during peak times.

Food packaging manufacturers

At GWP, we have worked with food and drink producers (including breweries) for over 30 years.

While working with some high-profile, high-volume manufacturers, our focus on customer service has also seen exceptionally successful partnerships formed with smaller, independent food producers.

We have designed and manufactured corrugated delivery boxes for Abel & Cole that last numerous trips. We have produced POS and shelf-ready packs for Bendicks (including packaging that won a prestigious Starpack Award). And we are the only UK company offering the FSA-approved “waterproof” Liquiguard coating for cardboard.

Our approach involves a dedicated design team and customer service manager specifically allocated to your business, focusing on producing truly cost-effective packaging that performs at the optimum level.

So whether you need to safely transport your products, boost sales in a retail environment, or even improve the efficiency and output of your production, we have the products, services and knowledge to help.
