We had the great pleasure of attending two exhibitions earlier in the year. The first was in May at the NEC in Birmingham where we exhibited at the Packaging & Innovations & Empack 2022. It was a fantastic show and a pleasure to meet so many people.
Our clever, plastic free, environmentally friendly eLok pack was recognised in the top ten most innovative products at the exhibition! We were amongst some incredible inventions and delighted to achieve 2nd place overall.
We were able to show case our eLok packing with two great products from two passionately green companies; if you haven’t tried them yet, we highly recommend both NOBL Thirst and Two Farmers!
A big shout out to a lovely small business near our Milton Keynes head office Kates Bakes who baked and supplied the cupcakes that were packed in our direct food BRCGS accredited in-house Window patch Box – they were delicious!
And then we went to Germany...
In June, two of our team took an environmentally friendly drive in an electric car out to Hamburg, to attend the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) to showcase our exclusive skytidy® product, proudly manufactured in our UK plants. In our quest to reduce the use of plastic in the skies, our skytidy® product range has been developed and manufactured utilising recyclable materials from FSC® sustainable sources.
After an intensive auditing process, we did it! We achieved the BRCGS global standard for the supply of packaging into the food industry. The A rating against Issue 6 includes direct food packaging!
The BRCGS certification enables our customers to demonstrate to their customers, their commitment to food safety while increasing confidence in their brand. For food packaging ideas and inspiration, take a look at our range of Window Patch Boxes which create a food safe barrier eliminating the need for bags, visually enhances your product and, reduces packaging waste. If you’re looking for ways to transport and/or present fresh produce, you will love the Food Retail Trays. Bespoke shelf ready trays are the ideal way to transport and present fresh produce, and as they are bespoke, they not only give you the perfect fit every time, they can be plain of printed as you require.
Well done to all the team for making this happen; it’s a fantastic Reedbut Group effort from all the departments across our business and a result of a lot of hard work!
Back in April, we were delighted to receive an award from Raja UK at their supplier day, which had been delayed since 2021. After a day of presenting to their teams, we were presented with an award for Customer Experience.
This is great recognition for the Reedbut Group team who consistently deliver excellent customer experience and further reassurance that when you buy directly from us the manufacturer, not only do you enjoy factory floor pricing; you will receive continuous, award-winning personal service!
Step into Christmas!
