A Look Inside Our Box Factory

As the temperature-controlled division of Pitreavie Packaging Ltd, Sorbafreeze are proud to say that we have complete control over every aspect of our own supply chain, including use of our very own 57,000 sq ft corrugated box factory.

The Pitreavie box factory was set up in 2020, and since then has developed to become one of the most modern and efficient corrugated packaging facilities in the industry today. With over £6m invested in highly efficient converting equipment, our box factory is expected to produce 30,000,000 units this year.

Being a part of such a large-scale manufacturing site benefits Sorbafreeze and our customers in a variety of ways.

Supply Chain Certainty

Due to the fact that we manufacture much of our own corrugated packaging (as well as our ice packs!), we do not face the same supply chain issues that many of our competitors do. This has a positive impact on our customers, who are confident in our ability to deliver.

Creative Minds

We work together with the entire team at Pitreavie to continuously develop and test new products. Pitreavie is a brand trusted by many for complete packaging solutions. Most recently, our team put their heads together and developed the new Ecotek 100% recyclable insulated box – another product of Pitreavie’s innovative team.


Design Capabilities

Our award-winning design team specialise in both structural and graphic design. This means that we can assist you in the creation of bespoke packaging. Whether you’d like a unique branding  concept, or a new structure to support specialist chilled goods, we can help.
