Reducing costs and minimising plastic packaging waste for food manufacturers through optimisation.

It is estimated that 150,000 tonnes of stretch film are used a year in the UK, we estimate this could be reduced by more than 45,000 tonnes through optimisation.

We work with food manufactuers to reduce costs and help them achieve their sustainability goals by minimising plastic packaging waste. We do this by working with them to optimise their packaging processes.

On average we have helped our customer achieve a 42% plastic reduction.

Not only has our process helped clients achieve significant plastic reductions, we almost always make them a considerable cost saving. This is not because we implement cheaper films, it is the superior quality, performance and our optimisation process which allows us to reduce the cost per pallet for the customer.

How do we help food manufacturers make savings?

Reducing costs and plastic waste most likely won’t need any significant capital investment. In fact the best place to start is with the machines and materials you already have. Through optimising these, if possible, huge savings can be generated.

Transit packaging audit

Our transit packaging audit will help you to identify where changes can be made to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your packaging processes.

Choosing the right film

Choosing the right film for you machines and requirement is very important. Using the wrong film can mean you are using up to 4 times more wrap than needed which is an unecessary cost and unecessary plastic waste.

Optimising your machines

Perhaps the most important but misunderstood step to improving the profitability and sustainability of your packaging operations is optimisation. By ensuring your machines are stretching the film to its optimum level and the wrappers are applying the right amount of film, significant savings can be made.
