Insulated Shipping Containers keep Cold & Perishable Food Cold and Hot Products Hot

DS Smith Plastics is a leading manufacturer of highly versatile Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Expanded Polypropylene insulated (EPP) packaging containers in the United Kingdom. Due to EPS and EPP thermal insulating properties, containers can maintain temperature-sensitive products either cold or hot longer than other types of packaging.

Insulated packaging for food has evolved from its roots as a solution for keeping the “catch of the day” fresh.  DS Smith Plastics, Foam Products in the UK offer a wide and diverse range of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) insulated home-delivery shipping containers.

EPS insulated containers keep cold perishables such as fish and meat cold for shorter distances. However, when used in combination with gel packs and other refrigerants, perishables transported in EPS shippers can maintain stable temperatures under 5°C for as long as 48 hours.

In contrast, EPP insulated containers are typically used for hot thermal protection to keep food hot/warm for shorter distances. EPP containers are often use for catering and home deliveries of hot foods.

DS Smith Plastics, Foam Products insulated boxes and containers are available in a variety of sizes. Insulated shipping boxes and containers are lightweight, durable and highly reusable, withstanding the toll of multiple deliveries.

DS Smith Plastics, Foam Products manufactures and distributes temperature controlled packaging from UK locations in Torpoint, Cornwall and Livingston, Scotland. A supportive customer service team is always on hand to assist with requirements.

The thermo box packaging can be used in numerous other industries such as pharma, animal feed, transportation of live animals etc. Click here for more information
