In the fast growing food industry, it is vital to have a trusted packaging partner to ship your perishable items. Swiftpak have over 40 years' experience in the food and drink industry including meal-kit services and pet food.  

Insulated Food & Drink Packaging Solutions

Reliable temperature controlled packaging is a vital component of shipping perishable products such as meal kits or the food for our beloved four-legged friends aka pet food. Frozen or chilled packaging ensures items are kept within a specific temperature range to help preserve the quality and safety of a product.

Temperature controlled packaging is frequently used to complement, and in some cases, substitute the need for temperature controlled logistics.

Swiftpak supplies a range of temperature controlled packaging solutions for the food & drinks industry in any temperature range

  • Deep-frozen
  • Frozen
  • Chilled
  • Room temperature

Temperature controlled packaging products for food & drink

Innovative Bioplastic

PLA chilled packaging

Keep the temperature of an internal product around 4 degrees Celsius at an average room temperature of 25-30 degrees Celsius for up to 30 hours.

Sustainable temperature controlled packaging

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is produced under controlled conditions using renewable sources such as corn starch or sugarcane. PLA is an innovative bioplastic that has thermal insulating properties and is eco-friendly. These packaging products can be fully degraded into carbon dioxide and water after composting, without any environmental pollution.

PLA temperature controlled packaging is important for the food companies that need well-insulated, renewable packaging to be able to keep your perishable food items cool or frozen during transit. Through the temperature stability of PLA food companies can feel assured that their items will be fresh when arriving at the customer.

Swiftpak offer a variety of different PLA temperature controlled packaging solutions

Eco-friendly Insulation

Insulated Box Liners

Made from renewable plant-based components and paper, this solution provides excellent temperature control for perishable food products.

Green temperature controlled packaging

This curbside recyclable solution proved excellent thermal protection as well as protection from shock, making it the perfect insulator for food items. It is OCC-E certified curbside recyclable with its primary material being kraft paper and is also certified repulpable by Western Michigan University’s Pilot Plants Programme.

By switching to this solution, you can be replacing unsustainable insulators such as Styrofoam or expanded polystyrene as it performs just as well, whilst also varying in thickness. These box liners ship and store flat until ready to be used, saving your company on costs and storage space.

Thermal Insulation

Polystyrene EPS boxes

Moulded Foam EPS boxes that provide excellent thermal performance for temperature sensitive items in the food and drink industry.

Polystyrene temperature controlled packaging

Polystyrene is an effective thermal insulator because it contains small, trapped air bubbles, meaning heat energy cannot pass through. This makes polystyrene EPS boxes a reliable form of temperature-controlled packaging for the food and drink industry that relies on their perishable items remaining fresh and safe without any temperature changes during transit.

Our Moulded Foam EPS boxes come in an extensive range including fish boxes, produce boxes and home delivery boxes. All of which provide excellent thermal performances for temperature sensitive products. This temperature controlled solution is lightweight and durable.

Coolants

Dry Ice

Dry ice is one of the preferred cooling agents used in many food and drink companies due to its many benefits.

Reliable temperature controlled packaging

Dry ice is ideal for transportation of perishable food products as it inhibits the growth or decline of certain biological products and it sublimates without leaving any residue or waste. Dry Ice is a solid carbon dioxide (CO2) that can go from a solid to a gas without passing through a liquid phase. Dry ice is commonly used for shipping meal kits or pet food due to its reliability in temperature stability.

Coolants

Gel packs

Ensure your food items are transported in a temperature-controlled manner, keeping items fresh and safe through the required temperature.

Reusable temperature controlled packaging

This products quality meets the highest industry standards being made from high-quality components, as well as being durable and reusable.

  • No Sweat Gel Packs keep your moisture and temperature sensitive products dry and chilled with its non-woven out layer reducing condensation. Available in a variety of sizes and weights.
  • Eco Friendly Gel Packs are made from Kraft paper so when disposed of through the normal waste stream they produce less pollution than the normal variety. The outside of the kraft paper absorbs some of the condense which appears while warming up, keeping your product dryer than normal gel packs. Also available in a variety of sizes and weights.
  • Segmented Gel packs are designed to better cover your products and produced to ensure conditioned transportation of your products. Available in different sizes, weights, and types of foil.
Temperature Indicators

Temperature Indicators

Monitor the temperature of food items during transit with temperature indicators.

Monitor temperature controlled packaging

Tested in a lab environment, temperature indicators are cost-effective and simple to use. Our temperature indicators are designed to monitor temperature and alert you if your food items such as meats or fish have been exposed to unacceptable temperatures by turning bright red in colour.

Some benefits include:

  • They can be shipped and stored under most conditions
  • Delivers clear results
  • Has the highest accuracy on the market for indicator technology

Our range of temperature indicators can be used to monitor medical test kits deep frozen below -18C as well as temperatures between -3 Celsius and +10 Celsius. Both deliver clear results.
