Packaging for food and beverage

Recent posts

Shipping fragile products such as wine, champagne and jars can be tricky as they require extra protection in transit.

21% of respondents in our recent unboxing survey reported packages arriving ripped, damp, dented or opened – not a great start as far as customer experience is concerned…

Below are a few packaging ideas to help you ship your products with peace of mind and avoid costly damage and returns.

Airsac kits

Airsac kits consist of an inflatable air bag and a cardboard box. They are perfect for transporting breakable goods such as wine and beer bottles. The airbags are supplied flat to maximise your storage space and are easy to inflate with a small compressor or airline. The packs can accommodate 3, 6 or 12 bottles, are fully recyclable and can be reused if required.

Airsac is also great for shipping other breakables such as jam jars, honey, sauce jars and oils. Watch this short video and see Airsac in action:

Food transit boxes

These strong, crash-lock base boxes come with folding flaps for easy sealing and increased security. They are ideal for shipping mixed food and drink items and are self-sealing, which means you won’t need any tape to secure your box.

You may also want to consider adding some tissue or shredded paper inside the box to enhance your product presentation even further. Your parcels will be well-protected while looking smarter!

Paper cushioning

Paper packaging solutions such as Geami WrapPak® are excellent for cushioning food and drink products such as cooking oils, dips, coffee jars and groceries.

Not only does Geami protect your products from damage; it also ensures they are beautifully-presented inside the box, offering the ultimate unboxing experience for your customers. Geami tissue paper is available in a variety of colours so that you can match them to suit your products and your branding.
