Our History

For over 38 years, KM Packaging has been supplying food manufacturers with reliable packaging and flexible printing solutions. We’re proud of our history and our achievements, knowing that every decision we have made has helped the business to grow within the market. We also know that with our current technical expertise and extensive knowledge, we can continue to innovate well into the future.

A Sweet Start

Back in 1984, we started life in the confectionery market after noticing a demand for a new reliable packaging solution.

We provided a one-stop shop for our customers, offering flexible packaging, flow wrap films, twist wrap films, pouches and bags as well as additional services including perforation and printing. KM Packaging bought a new way of thinking to the marketplace and soon became an established supplier of confectionery packaging. Many of our first customers are still working with us today.

A Savoury Addition

Less than 10 years later, we had the opportunity to branch out into new territory.

The early 1990’s saw us supply our first convenience customers with fresh produce and ready meal packaging films. We provided leading solutions to small and major UK food manufacturers and developed our packaging to meet their evolving requirements in this fast-paced industry.

In 1998, KM Packaging raised the bar when it came to innovation. We played an integral part in the development of reliable lidding films for smoothwall aluminium trays, cementing our position as a market-leader in the industry.

No Time Like the Present

Today, we offer one of the most diverse ranges of lidding films and flexible food packaging in the industry.

Everything we’ve done in the past has helped us get to where we are today. We now deliver to customers across the globe, covering five of the world’s continents including North America and Australia. We’ve built up a robust global supply model offering our customers effective and efficient delivery options wherever they are in the world.

We continue to build upon our foundations by working closely with our customers to develop new and exciting packaging solutions to meet their growing demands.

Focusing on the Future

We never stop looking ahead for our next adventure.

Our passion and enthusiasm will continue to drive us above and beyond the rest of the market. We will maintain and build upon our strong relationships with both customers and suppliers, ensuring our products are the most advanced in the industry.
