Cheese Packaging

Shelf Ready Packaging (SRP)

Shelf Ready Cheese Packaging is a great way of getting your product from the packing line to the supermarket shelf with the minimum of fuss but with maximum impact. As the leading independent UK cardboard box company Atlas Packaging is a specialist in cheese packaging as our packaging experts understand the industry and the specific requirements of transporting cheese. We are also able to design and manufacture the boxes to include branding and logos that can be printed in up to six colours direct on to the cardboard. The packaging we made for Saint Agur cheese (pictured) to go into the chiller cabinet in Lidls across the country won an award at the European Flexographic Industry Association Awards in 2020.

Champion UK cheese packaging 2019

As the leading independent UK cardboard box company, Atlas Packaging is also now the Champion cheese packaging producer for 2019. The  corrugated cardboard box we made for Cave Aged Cheddar (pictured here) won best packaging at the 2019 British Cheese Awards.  That recognition is richly deserved as we have a long and established history of providing cheese packaging for some of the UK’s largest producers. This experience brings with it a lot of knowledge about how cheese should be looked after during transit and on the supermarket shelf.  As a result of this experience we are able to provide cost effective corrugated cardboard packaging for producers of both soft and hard cheese, as we are familiar with the unique challenges each product presents.

Which packaging is best?

Cheese manufacturers who are looking for corrugated packaging generally opt for shelf ready packaging (SRP) which is also known as retail ready packaging, which offers cost-effective transit and retail packaging in one box. This means that it’s quick to assemble and pack on the processing line before being sealed and sent out to the retailer in a ready-to-use box. Once it arrives at the retailer the staff on the shop floor can then quickly and easily remove the perforated lid and place the box direct on to the shelf allowing the product to be seen. The carton can then be recycled once all the product has been removed. Our video shows how easy it is for our packaging to be assembled and filled on the packing line.
