Biodegradable Collation Shrink Films for the Micro-Breweries

Micro-Breweries have become increasingly popular over recent years with purveyors and connoisseurs of real ales demanding higher quality, natural ales brewed in the old fashioned, handcrafted manner.  We approached one of our customers who brewed real ales using traditional methods with natural organic hops, malt and spring water to see if we could further enhance their brand and ethos by using Biodegradable Collation Shrink Films for their packaging.

Our biodegradable shrink films and packaging films are manufactured using high clarity virgin grade polymers, producing either clear or coloured opaque films to suit our customers’ brand and identity.  The shrink film offers high yield and strength performance, and being recyclable, is perfect for the standards and demands driven within the food and drink industry.  

Working with our customer’s marketing team, we looked to enhance their offering and developed a film that had the necessary shrink ratios and clarity requirements to satisfy their manufacturing demands and developed a high-performance film that exceeded their expectations. And above all, it was Bio - Degradable.

Environmentally friendly Bio - Degradable shrink films

Bio - Degradable films break down under certain conditions of exposure to sunlight, moisture and oxygen and can help contribute to a greener and more environmentally friendly world, reducing CO2 omissions and having a positive impact on carbon footprint.  Here at Aintree Plastics, we are committed to ensuring that all our films are environmentally friendly and have gone the extra mile to ensure this happens by applying for and retaining the prestigious Environmental Assurance accreditation, ISO 14001:2015.  This gives our customer’s confidence when purchasing essential packaging films from us that there is total consistency and reliability throughout the supply chain.

Polythene films and packaging for the food and drink industry 

Using polythene films for packaging can be seen as quote controversial in this day and age, especially given the recent publicity surrounding plastics in our oceans, but we wanted to reassure our customers and followers that all our films are, indeed, 100% recyclable, meaning that the films can be reprocessed and extruded back in to new films for resale. 

We produce a wide range of films for the drinks and beverage industry including collation shrink film, shrink films, shrink pallet covers, top sheets and base sheets.  Take a look at our applications here for a method that suits you.
