Have you planned your Christmas chilled packaging yet?

What essentials are on your chilled packaging Christmas list this year? With only 11 weeks until Christmas, on-line sales are thriving and with the majority of households spending Christmas dining at home this year. Businesses who sell their products online are already experiencing high levels of demand in the lead up to the festive period.

During the current pandemic Sorbafreeze have seen increased demand for their chilled packaging with resilient producers finding a new route to market- consumer doorstep deliveries. As the UK’s leading manufacturer of insulated boxes and ice packs for the food and drink industry, Sorbafreeze have expanded their production team and manufacturing capacity to meet this growing demand for door to door delivery for Christmas.

We are the only BRCGS certified chilled packaging supplier in the UK reflecting our standards of quality and safety. By manufacturing everything in-house, we reduce customer costs and minimise product lead times.

Our Ice packs are a must this Christmas for the temperature safe transportation of your chilled products. We offer two ranges – Sorbatek gel ice packs and Hydratek, straight to freezer ice packs.

Sorbatek is our non-hydrated solution, essential for shipping a variety of temperature sensitive products including meat, seafood, ready meals and dairy. It is renowned for outstanding performance and minimal storage requirement and offers optimal temperature control for your goods for up to 48 hours.

Sorbatek keeps your products cooler for longer whilst in transit and our ‘no leak guarantee’ ensures your product arrives in pristine condition, coupled with our unique reflective foil allowing you to offer perfect presentation to your client with every delivery.

Benefits of Sorbatek

·       Space Saving

·       48 hour Performance

·       Food Safe

·       Value added Presentation

Hydratek is our range of pre-hydrated gel ice packs.

The outstanding performance of traditional Sorbatek is unbeatable but when your dispatch volume increases, the soaking prior to freezing process can become too time consuming and can outweigh the cost savings to be had with traditional unhydrated ice packs.

The Hydratek range has a selection of blocks and sheets to work with all insulated dispatch boxes to ensure temperature maintenance of your products for up to 48 hours.  Bespoke sizes and branded print are available on request.

Benefits of Hydratek

·       48 hour performance No pre-soaking required Bespoke options available

·       Food Safe
