Trial Facility

Our trial facility at our factory in Knutsford, Cheshire offers you the opportunity to carry out tests using your proposed packaging materials with your product incorporating the process steps you intend to use (MAP, SkinPAC, chill, freeze or cook) to verify the results prior to investment in machinery.  Shelf ready pack concepts can be produced to validate pack integrity and for performance trials such as shelf life and transit trials.

Our packaging seal technologist can guide you through the development of new packaging concepts including selecting environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic packaging and can help you access our vast database of packaging suppliers.

“I met Simon on the back of the PPMA show last year and he has been helping to support our plastic free agenda since. He has been a source of knowledge as we explore paper based materials and their sealing capabilities.  Simon is incredibly proactive when it comes to investigating new materials and is always on hand when we have quality and technical issues that we are trying to resolve. His honest approach enables us to get answers quickly and it has been a pleasure to collaborate with him as we try to turn the tap down on plastic production.  The service Simon provides is excellent and I look forward to continue working with him and the rest of the team at PA on paper based materials over the coming year.”
