Charpak Ltd recognised for sustainability

Charpak Ltd’s thermoforming packaging inserts can be designed to clients’ individual requirements. The benefit of design-led packaging means each packaging solution is unique, an essential requirement in the luxury and premium packaging sector.  

The company achieved the accolade of SME of the Year at the UK Packaging Awards in recognition for their developments in packaging sustainability. Charpak Ltd growth plans include the premium drinks industry; and in particular brands and partners who are seeking to add value to their product range.

Custom-designed packaging inserts range from full sized bottles down to mini-bottle gift packs, and added value items such as glasses, chocolates and jiggers. The leaders in protective packaging are keen to expand their ever-growing client-base in the drinks industry.  

Charpak’s unique offering includes their agility to respond to client lead times.  With regional representatives based throughout the UK, from taking the initial brief to concept designs, the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities mean they can deliver new solutions in an impressive 29 days as the entire process is managed in-house.  

Jonathan Pearson, the company’s Scotland-based premium drinks specialist confirms: “We have a superb in-house team of packaging designers, and the technical materials expertise to meet the market’s diverse needs. Every packaging product is designed to showcase brands and premium products to their fullest potential.”

He adds: “Whilst paper and cardboard drinks inserts are also widely recycled, the thermoformed inserts can be more cost-effective with far lower co-packing costs than cardboard equivalents. The inserts require minimal handling and no folding which aids faster production during co-packing.”  

Charpak is at the forefront of designing and manufacturing packaging which minimises environmental impact.  Their packaging is manufactured from up to 90 per cent recycled plastics, and can be recycled. All water usage is from a closed-loop system, so they can reduce their carbon footprint, and the company are an impressively long way towards achieving their zero-waste target.
