Produce Packaging are the UK's leading supplier of packaging materials, specifically designed for the Fresh Food industry.
Celebrating 40 years in the industry.
Established in 1980, we source a wide range of products from both UK and European manufacturers for distribution in the UK and further afield.
With the help of our parent company H.L Hutchinson Ltd, we have expanded our distribution network on a national scale, with distribution depots in Kent, Lincolnshire, Herefordshire, and Scotland. Stock items are available with next day delivery on our own fleet of vehicles.
We pride ourselves on the service we provide and the comprehensive range of products that we can offer. We are increasingly focusing on products that are recyclable, compostable and biodegradable where appropriate, as packaging serves an important purpose, but its environmental impact must be minimised.
We offer services including bespoke packaging and innovative new materials and packs. We also offer a stockholding facility for customers own products as part of our Packaging Category Management service, offering you a single contact point for all your packaging requirements.
Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
40 years ago, Produce packaging operated from a shed in the heart of the Kent countryside. Whilst we have retained our relative location in Kent as our Head Office, it now occupies 3 buildings and is some 20 times bigger! Also, in recent times we have opened 3 more depots across the nation, in strategically important regions, to meet demand from our ever-growing client base. We have moved our depot from the H L Hutchinson site in Wisbech to a purpose-built site in Spalding, we have opened a depot in Ledbury to service the Vale of Evesham and the west and we have opened a depot in Forfar, Scotland, to further enhance our Nationwide coverage.
As you can no doubt imagine, our 40th anniversary didn’t quite get the exposure we had hoped and planned for in 2020! From humble wooden crate beginnings to Europe wide (and elsewhere) supplier of various packaging materials, we have come a long way. Investment and innovation have driven our progress and we now supply products to over 500 produce packers in the UK alone. Recent investment has added a new box conversion plant at our site in Marden, Kent and box conversion facilities in Scotland. As we work toward our 50th anniversary, investment and innovation will remain the key drivers.
Our People Make The Difference
Our most valuable asset is the team that puts in so much hard work. The investment and innovation only bear fruit when those implementing and maintaining our high standards are of exceptionally high calibre also. We were fortunate enough to get a large group of the team, from across the country, together in January 2020. Hope to see you again soon everyone.
