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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As more and more companies choose to deliver their produce via delivery systems such as chilled boxes or insulated envelopes, the benefits of quality temperature-controlled packaging is becoming more widely known.
Woolcool operates on proudly progressive values, from our founding belief in the superiority of natural materials to our commitment to develop our team members, support our partners and enhance the community in which we are based.
