Food Packaging & Food Sleeve Printing

Our custom printed food packaging and food sleeves give your products an extra visual boost on-shelf and provide protection in transit. A great packaging solution for all food businesses including startups, artisan producers and SMEs, our custom food sleeves are a great way to promote your brand and help it stand out from the crowd.

All of our food packaging sleeves are totally customised to fit your food tubs, trays, boxes and shrink-wrapped products perfectly. We can also design the print-ready artwork for you.

About Our Retail Packaging Food Sleeves

These custom printed packaging sleeves come in a range of printed board weights and finishes including gloss, matt and uncoated – many of these are freezer-safe for frozen food applications. We also have a range of speciality papers and boards including kraft, metallic, GF Smith embossings and many more.

The majority of our printed sleeves are not only recyclable and bio-degradable but compostable too, making them an excellent choice for sustainable food packaging.

All our food sleeves are suitable for die-cutting to cater for all types of box shape and size, and come with pre-scored creases for perfectly neat folding. We also machine-glue the sleeves to ensure accuracy, speed and cost-efficiency.

Minimum Order Size For Printed Food Packaging

Our low minimum order quantity (MOQ) for sleeve packaging printing makes us the perfect partner for startups, artisan producers and SMEs in the food industry. Our minimum order is 1,000 units (or 250 per SKU for multiple orders).

We deliver locally in the UK and around the world to your food processing plant or hold in stock for call-off for a fast and seamless operational flow.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes! We print everything bespoke to fit your branding style and dimension requirements. This includes die-cutting where required, and all packaging sleeves are supplied scored and glued for easy assembly.

Can you help me design my food packaging sleeves?

Yes, we can. We have a design studio in-house with a team of creatives to create your brand from scratch, or design your food packaging sleeves to fit your existing product portfolio. Our design team are highly skilled in both the creative and technical aspect of packaging sleeve design so that it not only looks good but is cost-effective to produce and fits correctly onto your packaging.

Can you produce food-safe packaging?

Yes! We are a BRC (British Retail Consortium) accredited. This is an independent food safety accreditation that proves that high food safety standards are in place so food companies are safe to supply to supermarkets and large organisations. Therefore, you can have peace of mind that your food packaging fits the right criteria for food safety.
