Live Coronavirus Coverage

Wrap-up - 27/03/2020

Our round up of what's been happening in the world of flexible packaging.

KM Packaging team move home

We’re all set up! We have full operational remote access to all our systems … we’ve got Zoom … and we’re up and running from our various homes. It has been a good week supporting our customers and working with our suppliers and hauliers, all facing the same challenges of getting to grips with remote teams. And we did it together. 

#teamwork #critical

Settling into home working

On LinkedIn, our Print Services Manager, Kerry Wilson, said: “We are so fortunate to work for KM where the directors have enabled us all to be fully equipped to work from home and to be able to offer full service to our customers and carry on working with suppliers.”

And John Shipley, Business Unit Director, added: “Well said. I’ve found I’ve also talked to or communicated with a lot more people I haven’t for ages.”

In other news …

You’d be forgiven for feeling submerged in “mono news”, with coronavirus being the only topic. But there are still other important items. For example:

  • Plastics Tax – the government has launched a consultation, open until May 20th, on the detailed design and implementation of the tax.
  • Food Waste – WRAP has published guidance for food growers on measuring in-field food surplus and waste.
  • Sustainability – a Bill has been introduced requiring UK policymakers to consider long-term environmental sustainability.

Hopefully, through this “Wrap Up” and other channels, you can still keep up-to-date. And, on the subject of “mono news”, we will shortly be sharing more information on KM’s mono-material packaging solutions that are designed for recyclability. Watch this space!

And finally …

  • The Plastics Paradox – in a new book, a leading scientist reveals the facts about plastics and the environment. And he reveals that almost everything we have been told is untrue. Here is a Q&A with the author.
  • Polymer Ambassadors – over 2500 school pupils have had a bespoke science lesson delivered by trained “polymer ambassadors” from the British Plastics Federation (BPF). We’re wondering if this and other schemes could now be delivered digitally while many of the pupils are at home?
  • Bug Feeds on Plastic – a bacterium that feeds on toxic plastic has been discovered by scientists. 

From the KM team … Stay Safe, Keep up the Good Work, Help Others.

Konrad is boxing clever with customer service

He might like to duck and dive in the boxing ring, but Konrad Webster doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to delivering customer service here at KM Packaging.

Superpowers of film that protects, presents, and preserves

If the packaging world had a superhero, its name would most likely be "FOIL". In its aluminium form, this super material has a range of properties that make it a formidable force, particularly when used for trays in food packaging.

35 Years 35 Reasons - Part 2

In celebration of our 35th anniversary, we are continuing our countdown of the top 35 reasons our customers, suppliers and employees love working with KM Packaging!

Since 1984, KM has been at the forefront of lidding films and flexible packaging development, serving the needs of the global convenience food market. 

From a core ethos of excellence that spans the full length of the business, from right-first-time delivery and superior product knowledge, to establishing local warehousing on the customer’s behalf, we aim to go above and beyond expectations to develop lasting relationships. 

C is for ... our high value characteristics

Benjamin Franklin campaigned to have it removed from the alphabet. It can sound like “ess”, “kay”, and “shh”. On its own, it could be centigrade, a century, or a computer language. In fact, since the days of ancient Rome, the letter “C” has been changeable, curious, and central to some confusion.

But, for us, “C” leads into six of the characteristics we value the most highly.
