Since being founded in 2009, our packaging company has been recognised with numerous awards, as founder Angela Morris’s ‘eureka’ moment was transformed into an innovative company.
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.
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.
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.
As a company founded on principles of sustainability and responsibility, Woolcool is committed to meeting as many of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – as we can.
Key to the success of the agenda are the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – which set out how everyone can contribute to make the world a better place, from defeating poverty to driving innovation.
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.
