We have since grown to offer one of the most diverse ranges of lidding films and flexible food packaging in the industry, including our unique K range that includes lid solutions for APET, CPET, PP, paperboard, pulp board and aluminium trays. KM Packaging has remained an industry leader by developing and staying true to the core fundamentals of packaging – to protect, present and preserve. 

In addition to domestic sales across the UK to some of the largest food manufacturers in the industry, we also export packaging products to North America, Australia, Chile and South Africa, with continued growth across the international market.

It is testament to our passionate team and commitment to innovation that we have been able to readily adapt to new trends and technologies at each stage in our history, staying ahead of the market. Since our inception, we have seen a great deal of change in packaging trends and styles, as well as most recently, a growing consumer awareness of packaging and the wider retail supply chain."

“We take great pride in our experience of great packaging design and knowledge of global markets to bring value, quality and service to our customers, and we look forward to many more successful years helping them respond to consumer needs.”

Lifting the Lid on Plastic - Part 4: Answering the difficult question with the 3 Ps - protect present preserve

Can I have a “P” please, Bob?, was once the UK’s favourite TV game-show catchphrase, as we sniggered like school kids over the classic double entendre from Blockbusters.

Today, if the contestants again tackled questions whose answers began with a specific letter of the alphabet, there would bound to be a question like “What P is being blamed for causing pollution in our oceans?”.

Of course, the quick-fire answer would be “Plastic”.

But there is a lot more to the plastic question. And a few more “P”s as well!

Lifting the Lid on Plastic: Any colour as long as it’s not black

Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black. Those were the words of Henry Ford about the Model T which, in 1913, became the first automobile to be built on a moving assembly line.

Black was chosen at the time because it was inexpensive and fast-drying and assisted the speed of assembly.

You could be forgiven for thinking the same statement was previously applied to food trays. Not so long ago, supermarkets’ ready-meal and fresh food shelves appeared to be almost completely stacked with black plastic trays.
