Food Industry

We have developed rigorous controls to ensure the necessary hygiene levels are maintained in food grade production of polythene used in direct food contact. Thus, we have accreditation against the British Retail Consortium Global Packaging Standard. Furthermore, to ensure the safety and compliance of our polythene products, we only use virgin food grade polythene polymers and additives which meet European Food Packaging Regulation requirements, and no recycled materials including our own production waste.
