When a world famous Devon cheese maker needed new hamper boxes for e-commerce and their farm shop they didn't need to look outside of the county for the solution. Here at Atlas Packaging in Barnstaple we were able to produce and supply a stylish and environmentally sustainable replacement which also saved time as Julie, Quicke's Farm Shop Manager explains:
"We needed new hampers as our originals were red open boxes which, once the contents were inside, cellophane would be placed over the top. This was a timely process for the shop - especially at Christmas when the hamper orders fly in! We also wanted our hampers to be able to be recycled as originally we had planned to have an acetate window on top - which couldn’t be recycled."
Quicke's hamper boxes come in two sizes and are fully recyclable
The fully enclosed box produced by Atlas is Flexo printed on our Cuir Flexo printer for outstanding print quality and also comes with text on the underneath of the lid. Atlas Sales Representative Tom Sharman says the environmental benefits of sustainable packaging are becoming ever more important to businesses:
"Quicke's are a fantastic example of a producer that cares for the environment. Their philosophy is to do right by the land and to never take nature for granted. They've been making cheese for 500 years so their sustainable approach to farming clearly works. We're delighted to continue playing a part in their story to ensure that the delivery box for their cheese is just as sustainable and stylish."
The hampers are packed ergonomically into an outer box to eliminate any wasted space for transit and in the future Quicke's are considering an outer sleeve rather than an additional transit box to further cut down on packaging. The hamper boxes come in two different sizes with the smaller box for their Cheese Lovers Hamper and their Cheddar Tasting Box. The larger box is for their Signature Hamper which comes packed with three types of 500g cheeses along with a variety of tasty crackers and chutneys.
