International produce firm gives
Tri-pack packaging the green-light
In spring 2019, Wealmoor; a leading global produce grower, packer and marketer approached Tri-pack seeking a carbon-free packaging solution for their Herbfresh product business.
Wealmoor are well-known suppliers into many leading supermarkets. The business is built on the ethos of making a positive impact on the world around them.
Why Wealmoor choose to work with Tri-pack

High Quality Printing
Tri-Pack help you stand out from the crowd by offering printed packaging. We can colour match any logo and print any design making your packaging unique to you.
Using our own unique tooling we seal the fluted edges of our packaging, this creates a strong barrier which becomes imperishable to dirt, dust, water and oils.

Reduced Delivery Costs
We can reduce your delivery costs as our packaging is light weight and with our unique flat pack design, more packaging can fit on a single pallet.
Tried, tested and measured, all Tri-pack packaging has far superior insulation properties than our competitors when in a complete cold chain meaning your product arrives safe and fresh.
Every component of our packaging; the plastic, glues and inks are 100% recyclable.
The right product for the job
Wealmoor aim to protect both the environment and the wellbeing of communities globally, by supporting such policies as the modern slavery policy and UN sustainable development goals.
During the trial stages of the tender, Tri-pack stood out to Wealmoor against its competitors early on in the trial; being the only packaging provider who could deliver a 100% recyclable and leakproof packaging solution.
Cost savings galore
Prior to the partnership, Wealmoor stored all polystyrene packaging boxes in a separate warehouse, which involved a team of people who stored and transported the packaging ready for distribution.
The previous packaging was bulky and took up valuable pallet space, which is a common problem for many businesses. Tri-pack however, offers a flat-pack solution which means up to 70% more storage capacity on a single pallet.
Bespoke, bright and better for the planet
For Wealmoor this economical benefits of the packaging meant that Tri-pack’s option does not need to be stored and distributed from another warehouse, also resulting in a reduction in their carbon footprint.
All of Tri-packs packaging can be printed bespoke to the client which stands out head and shoulders above any polystyrene or cardboard alternative. The branding design for the Herbfresh produce line is bold and striking which adds an element of quality and markets the product itself.
In October 2019, Wealmoor were awarded The Innovation Award 2019 for their commitment to plastic reduction following their move to the HerbFresh box by Tri-pack.
We are excited to be the first to announce a new solution for our herb boxes, moving away from polystyrene to a polypropylene box which has all of the following great benefits: a reduction in carbon footprint; it is 100% recyclable so no need to incinerate or landfill; it is lighter in weight and can be flat packed and reduces the amount of unused transported space, meaning a saving on logistics and storage.
Not only does the Herbfresh box look the part but this 100% recyclable option is also better for the product. The packaging is BRC and FCA approved. The patented dual-barrier technology which Tri-pack invented keeps the herbs fresher for longer.
