Strengthening Customer Service with New Appointment

Staff Focus

We are excited to introduce to you Alison King, our newest member of our Customer Service team. Alison joins KM Packaging from global leader in specialty food, nutrition ingredients and pharmaceutical excipients, Roquette. She brings a wealth of experience drawn from a number of roles, including nine years in customer care. 

Alison will deliver the highest possible level of service to KM Packaging’s customers around the globe, coordinating with all other areas of the business to deliver seamless support. 

Alison said of her appointment: “It is extremely exciting to be joining the company at such a dynamic time. The strength of KM’s customer service team is a real point of difference in the market. Our highly capable team operate on an ‘accounts’ basis in which each customer has a dedicated customer service representative. 

“This enables representatives to have a comprehensive view of their customers’ orders, handling every element of the process from the very start right through to organising logistics and ultimately delivery. I look forward to building strong relationships with our customers in our domestic and international markets and embodying the company’s values of ownership, passion, trust and innovation.”   

This is the latest appointment during a period of sustained growth for the company, which has seen its customer service team grow by 25% since 2016. 

Graham Holding, Commercial Director at KM Packaging, added: “We are absolutely delighted that Alison has joined the business. She is the perfect fit for our vibrant, independent customer service team and we are thrilled to have her on board.”

KM Packaging Joins APCO

Global flexible packaging and lidding films supplier KM Packaging is proud to become a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO). 

We have joined more than 1500 other members that share a common agenda - a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our packaging.

Catch-22 of the Plastic Packaging Tax

The UK Government’s imminent Plastic Packaging Tax has created a frustrating Catch-22. The problem is that, for trays containing food intended to be heated with the lid kept on, it is not currently possible to produce a heat-sealable lidding film made with a recycled material approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).

Veganism: Is your packaging animal-free?

Even beyond the throes of Veganuary, more people than ever are choosing to go vegan. Whether for animal cruelty concerns, environmental concerns or simply to try and be a little healthier, people across almost every demographic are choosing vegan options. Between 2010 and 2016, for example, PMMI reported a 25% increase in vegetarian and a staggering 257% increase in vegan global food and drink product launches. This has only continued to rise, with supermarket giant Tesco reporting in October that vegan food had been the fastest growing culinary trend of 2018.  

Sealing sugarcane trays Down Under

Tomato was the first ready-to-eat soup to be packaged in a can by Campbell’s back in 1895. The label said: “This soup is made from the celebrated ‘Beefsteak Tomato’.”

So, it is perhaps appropriate that tomatoes – this time the Sweet Berry Truss variety – are the first produce to be packaged in a new sugarcane tray protected by our K PEEL printed lidding film.
 

Enhancing the KReseal Range With Multipeel Solution

We have launched our K Reseal PET e AF resealable lidding solution, delivering enhanced multiple peel and reseal capability to improve consumer convenience and reduce product waste.
