In the small village of Sandhutton there is a big player in the Herb and salad game, Herbs Unlimited. A family business, much like ourselves, that is dedicated to ensuring the food industry receives the highest quality produce possible.
We have worked with Herbs Unlimited for 15 plus years, building a long relationship and an understanding of the quality expected and consistently providing it over the years. 2019 was the year for change, a redesign to not only refresh the packaging design but to provide increased flexibility and remove the restrictions faced on the packing line from a film with a set repeat.
This new design offers a continuous print pattern that can be sized to any product on the packing line, meaning there is very little excess and waste in the process verses a large set repeat to fit all produce. Coupling this with the 5 micron downgrade in film thickness across the range sees a potential weight saving of over 2100kg annually.
‘We have worked with Ultimate Packaging for a long time, they really understand our business and ethos. They have done a great job with our design refresh and worked hard to help achieve our continued commitment to reduce packaging. We have managed to reduce our film by 30% with their help and expertise and look forward to see what we can achieve together in the future.’ – Mel Whitehead, Marketing and Business Development Manager.
We hope to continue this relationship long into the future, innovating with the packaging design across all ranges and finding further ways in order to reduce packaging waste, keeping quality high for this high quality herbs and salad brand.
