Trays to meet your needs
We're experts in all types of tray substrates and we'll give you the benefit of our technical experience in choosing the best options for the job. Our trays meet a wide range of needs: for both packer/fillers who have to consider issues like barrier properties, shelf life and existing equipment; through to consumers looking for convenience and ease of use in packaging. We hold in stock or produce to order most types of BRC accredited rigid plastic or foil trays, in a variety of colours for food and non-food products.
Ensuring the optimum solution We've got trays that can be deep-frozen; crimped or smooth-walled foil trays that can be popped straight in the oven or microwave for cooking; and trays that can be more effectively re-cycled. From industry stalwarts like polypropylene and expanded polystyrene through to more innovative and robust materials like APET, we deliver the optimum solution for your requirements and budget. If you want to create a point of difference from your competitors, with bespoke tooling we can also create something unique just for you.
Eco-friendly trays
The issues of over-packaging and limited landfill for waste means we're constantly striving to find more eco-friendly substrates. Together with our network of material suppliers, thermoformers, packer/fillers and retailers themselves, we're already creating better solutions. For instance, we're developing tray material that still offers superb clarity and sufficient shelf life, but with enhanced bio-degradable properties. Our approach enables you to apply the latest technologies, satisfy any new legal requirements, and help tackle environmental concerns at the same time.
De-nesters that tray harder If you're really serious about fully automating your packaging operation, we deliver a radical solution to de-nesting trays into single units, to make product loading faster than ever before.
Lift the lid on new solutions Looking to stretch the possibilities and shrink your costs? If there's a better way to do things, we can make it happen. It goes without saying that anything you want for both food and non food markets, such as stretch wrap, shrink wrap base web, complex lidding films and oven-ready packaging, we've got the answer. But at RPS, we don't just supply films and other products. We can use our in-depth expertise to audit your entire process, packaging spec and equipment, with a view to proposing a more efficient and cost-effective solution. For packer/fillers, we'll advise on when it might be best to use shrink wrap rather than stretch; what level of barrier you should be considering; how anti-fogging film could improve product appearance; or what substrates can be safely deep frozen. For consumer appeal, we've got loads of great ideas for extra convenience like lidding films that vent steam for microwave cooking.
Know-how in printed films We also supply quality, printed film on reels for customers to convert into bags, via vertical form-fill and seal or horizontal flow-wrap; or we can supply printed lidding film to seal to trays. Over the years we've built up long-standing partnerships with BRC accredited printers and we offer print management as part of our service. We've got bags of choice for you in printed styles for the fresh market and frozen sectors, including oven cook bags in up to eight colours and wicket bags in up to ten colours.

With significant expertise in packaging print, there isn't a substrate we haven't come across. This means we can see the potential - and dodge the pitfalls - of printing on any type of material. At RPS we offer the complete print management service; whether printing onto solid carton board, flexible films or paper labels, we have a tried and tested network to supply quality printed products at competitive prices. Using only BRC accredited printers working with the latest technology, we offer a print for packaging capability that is second to none.
Cartons of tricks up our sleeve For the food industry, we've got just what you need for your ambient, fresh or frozen categories. We supply a good selection of printed cardboard cartons, including those for retail units like cereal, pizza and fish fingers erected by machine equipment. Cardboard sleeves range from part or profiled through to full pack coverage. Cartons and sleeves can be printed up to six colours and if you're looking for something a bit fancy, we also offer metallic printing. We run all sleeves and cartons to order and carry stock.
Stick with us for labels Our labels come in all shapes and sizes from "c" wrap to all standard header and base labels suitable for a wide range of applications and all base materials. We supply labels printed up to 8 colours, including labels printed on the reverse, and offer multiple varnish finishes. For your premium products, metallic or tactile labels with matt varnish, foils, embossing or textured papers are a speciality. Quite simply, we supply and carry stock for any industry standard equipment, plus all our label printers are BRC accredited.
Printing on film is in the bag If it's a film used to package a product, we can get good quality print onto it. We offer printed lidding or base film in any medium, and printed shrink or stretch wrap. We also have an excellent track record in printed bags for the freezer or the oven too.
