As a pioneer in the use of natural materials and sustainable packaging in insulated packaging for food, you might expect Woolcool® to adopt a lofty position above all the controversy.
Frozen gel packs or ice packs provide the essential energy at the core of a delivery, but there are so many other factors that influence the performance.
It is not only how a company engages in community support but why it chooses to do so. Woolcool® is proud to be part of a business community that reaches out to support the community and charity not as a box-ticking gesture or an opportunity for marketing.
Woolcool is a pioneering packaging company. Woolcool® was launched in 2008 and the innovative, sustainable design has scooped an impressive haul of awards in the packaging, business, and environmental arenas.
Innovation has seen Angela’s eureka moment grow into an international business. Speak to the Woolcool® team and you find that the creative spark isn’t just confined to the laboratories and designers – it’s an intrinsic part of the company’s set up, which encourages openness and idea sharing.
As it’s in our blood not to shy away from a challenge, an in-depth process of research and prototyping ensued, reviewing materials, developing insulating liner designs and box sizes. This led to a series of temperature trials with a variety of potential solutions. Wool is a genuinely environmentally responsible solution.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything Woolcool® does. They have spent more than a decade investing millions of pounds developing temperature-controlled packaging products for the pharmaceutical market, which use 100% sheep’s wool.
As the year draws to a close, we thought it would be good to reflect on a year of innovation and renewal, which saw Woolcool officially open its new HQ, win further Royal recognition and launch an award-winning new sustainable product.
The nation has a new King and Woolcool has received another Royal honour. In what may prove to be the last Queen’s Award scheme before it is renamed, Woolcool has been recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Sustainable Development).
Wool is nature’s Smart Fibre which, as a result of millions of years of development in nature’s laboratory – evolution – is flexible, reusable, recyclable, compostable, light and strong. It’s also abundant.
