Sheep’s wool is a sustainable and highly effective natural insulation material which we have used to design and develop Woolcool eco-friendly packaging products and packaging solutions, offering impressive performance and cost benefits.
When we first started selling meat boxes online, we were using boxes lined with polystyrene, which worked well but didn’t fit with the sustainable, environmentally friendly ethos of our business. After some research, we found Woolcool, which in stark contrast to our existing packaging, offered everything we were looking for and we now use it for all of our deliveries. Selling consumable products, it is vital that the packaging keeps our meats at temperatures below 5 degrees for up to 48 hours, and Woolcool does just that.
You wouldn't necessarily think that the humble sheep could transform the UK's leading recipe box delivery service, but that's what Woolcool have done. We can now send fresh produce in wool-lined, ice-packed boxes from Land's End to John o' Groats and it turn up every bit as fresh as when it left the Fresh Farm. And the greatest surprise? It's as popular with our customers' cats as with the customers themselves!
We love Woolcool. Our business is built on delivering fresh organic produce grown with sustainability in mind. Woolcool is an extension of our ethos, a sustainable insulated packaging solution delivering our products as fresh as the day they were picked.
We absolutely LOVE the Woolcool boxes and the feedback from our clients has been amazing. Won't be going back to polly boxes!
Rigorous testing to industry standards in our own environmental chambers supported by independent trials consistently proves that Woolcool insulated packaging will keep contents at required constant temperatures for longer than conventional packaging.
Prior to using Woolcool, we could not despatch to certain destinations on a Friday as the old style “cool box” packaging could not maintain product temperature between 2-8°C over the weekend for a Monday delivery. We now find that the Woolcool technology and associated packaging keeps our temperature sensitive products within range for 72hrs+, and this gives us the opportunity to despatch temperature sensitive products to our customers every day of the week.
Woolcool outperforms all the other thermal insulated packaging we have tried (and we’ve tried them all). Without doubt, Woolcool is the performance insulated packaging solution and we will continue our partnership with them.
