Innovation

The value we place on innovation guides everything we do as a business, from our product collection and tailored services through to our supply chain and even our internal operations. We strive to always remain at the very forefront of the packaging industry’s capabilities with a proactive approach that finds sustainable solutions with ease and efficiency.

Our Unique 3 Stage Process

Our 3 stage process is the defining aspect of what makes working with Westpak a unique and seamless experience. Innovation guides each step of the process as we work closely with our clients and suppliers to unlock ideal packaging solutions that accommodate complex sustainability targets and commercial objectives. From an unbiased position, we adopt bold and creative thinking, drawing upon manufacturing expertise with vast product options and bespoke capabilities.

Investigate

Here we deep dive into the project with our clients to fully scope out their packaging needs and establish the key project deliverables; from improved product performance, logistical efficiency, and cost savings, through to complex sustainability and environmental packaging objectives. 20 years of practical industry experience has shaped this stage of intelligent questioning to quickly establish the commercially viable options available from a genuinely unbiased viewpoint.

Solve

In addition to our comprehensive product range, Westpak has an unrivalled grasp of the manufacturing capabilities of its supply partners across the world and the product specialities of each. Our bold thinking approach is underpinned by a technical product expertise, enabling us to assess if ‘best fit’ products or concepts exist which could be deployed to cut development time. If something completely new is required, we will design a uniquely tailored product and match the balance of project objectives to our best fit supply partner.

Impress

We aim to impress all our customers with great food packaging products backed by a flexible and highly responsive delivery capability. We’re able to reduce stock fluctuations by taking a proactive approach and overseeing supply. We can set up usage forecasts that factor in promotions, and tailor a matching regular delivery schedule, or set up call-off deliveries from our BRC Grade AA certified warehouse. Within our customer service team, you will have a dedicated customer account manager to oversee your ongoing requirements as a single point of reference. This commitment to customer service has remained central to our strong client retention and overall business growth.

Product Range

Our product collection offers a vast range of packaging for both the grocery and foodservice sectors. We currently offer products manufactured from more than 20 different material options, satisfying various practical, logistic and sustainable considerations. We also continuously innovate with our tailored and unique solutions, which we have provided for brands across the market. Whether it was sourcing easily recyclable ‘Kraft board’ fruit punnets for Waitrose, helping M&S launch a tennis-inspired range of apples, or providing Gourmet Burger Kitchen with hygienic cutlery bags in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are always looking for innovative ways to help our clients enhance their product.

Suppliers & Manufacturers

As a business that champions such an innovative approach, we also see it as vital to only work with suppliers and manufacturers who share this same value. We carefully select our network of suppliers and manufacturers to ensure we benefit from the latest production technologies and design potential. We enjoy long-standing partnerships and collaborations with many of our suppliers. However, we are also not hesitant to look further afield when required to help achieve bespoke requirements to the highest standard.
