Putting a Cap on Contamination

Putting a Cap on Contamination

Hereford based Vision 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.

Vision 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.


Based in Hereford, where polyethylene extrusion dates back to 1962,Vision Gelpack is one of the largest privately owned manufacturers of polyethylene and compostable packaging in the UK, with annual capacity in excess of 30,000 tonnes. The Vision Gelpack organisation’s primary focus is in the development and production of high performance films, bags, liners and sacks for a wide range of industries, including food and beverage processing, as well as the local council, cleaning and janitorial and waste management sectors.
