Putting a cap on product contamination

30 May 2017

Hereford based Gelpack, the leading manufacturer of high-performance flexible packaging, has developed a strong and durable stretch pallet cap to avoid the risk of bottom-up product contamination throughout the supply chain. 

Manufactured using the company's tried and tested mitre seal technology, the caps are easily applied and primarily aimed at those who use wooden pallets, where the risk of moisture and other contaminants is high. With their tight, elasticated fit, the stretch caps provide a low-cost option, while also reducing the need for cardboard and other packaging. 

Gelpack stretch pallet caps are BRC approved, as well as being accepted by the USDA for those areas from which meat products are exported. "Our research indicates a wide range of applications for this product," says regional sales manager Nicky Ankers. "The pallet caps provide a highly effective option to plastic pallets, which can cost more than ten times as much as wood. They can also be easily adapted to cover Dolav pallet boxes, which are widely used in agriculture, material handling and transportation and other applications," she adds.
