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.
Founders of the sustainable packaging revolution
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.
A year of innovation and renewal
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.
Honoured by our latest Royal recognition
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).
Why we’re so proud of our latest royal recognition
Plaudits and praise were never the driving factor behind the Woolcool ethos. However, we are very proud of the latest accolade to be added to our trophy cabinet – the 2022 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development.
A business funded on sustainable ideals
By harnessing the benefits of 100% pure wool to provide superior insulation for temperature-controlled packaging, Woolcool® was created as a viable alternative to polystyrene and other manmade materials, stopping millions of tonnes of pollutants from going into landfills.
A brilliant idea that was over a decade in the making
From the ‘eureka moment’ when our founder Angela Morris first realised the potential of 100% sheep’s wool as an insulator for packaging, to our Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, Woolcool® has always looked for new ways of doing things.
Striking a balance: Working with farming to protect the planet
Our company was formed after a ‘eureka’ moment for our founder Angela Morris, after she was asked to find a way to help the National Trust’s farmers get their products to market in a reliable and environmentally friendly way.
Striking a balance: choosing the right materials
Our market-leading temperature-controlled packaging relies on expertly balancing conditions inside and outside of our products, whether it’s an insulated box or a smaller package, using the remarkable insulation properties of 100% sheep’s wool.
Woolcool® Insulated Packaging. Naturally.
Woolcool® was launched in 2008 and the innovative, sustainable design has scooped an impressive haul of awards in the packaging, business and environmental arenas.
