Packaging for Dairy Industry

The UK & Ireland dairy market has faced rapid growth over the past 30 years. The removal of trade barriers coupled with the development of long-life product using barrier films contributed to the rapid increase in demand for the UK & Irish Cheese markets in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. This rapid expansion has later resulted in large consolidation within both the UK and Irish Cheese markets since the 1990’s.
Recently there has been a significant increase in the demand for artisanal cheese products within the industry. Record Packaging has worked with our film and machine manufacturers to be able to bring new solutions to meet these market’s needs.

Packaging Films for The Diary Industry

With collaboration with our international partners Record UK can offer competitive and more effective shrink, thermoforming and lidding films for cheese applications compared to cryo-vac alternatives. Using a special formulated Patented film are manufacturers have designed a unique shrink application that will allow the cheese to breath more effectively within the film and we can provide better shelf life compared to our competitors. You can order a free sample roll for testing on your machine by contacting one of our team.

Both our Thermoforming and Shrink films have demonstrated compatibility with the PE flexibles mechanical recycling stream.
