Woolcool is the brainchild of the multi award-winning packaging designer, Angela Morris, a leading innovator in the packaging industry.
Angela first began researching and developing insulated packaging using sheep’s wool in 2002, proving wool to offer the high performance, natural, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to man-made polymers.
Woolcool is born
Woolcool was launched in 2008 and the innovative, sustainable design has scooped an impressive haul of awards in the packaging, business and environmental arenas. Woolcool remains the only range of sheeps wool insulated packaging available on a commercial scale.
In 2009, Keith Spilsbury joined our Woolcool team as Managing Director, with a specialist background in the materials handling and logistics sectors, bringing years of experience in senior operational and marketing management.
UK government support
In 2012 and 2013, we were awarded funding from the UK Government backed Technology Strategy Board to further research and develop Woolcool technology specifically for the pharmaceuticals sector and the transportation of highly temperature sensitive vaccines.
We continue to grow
Our team has expanded rapidly but we still pride ourselves on building close relationships with clients on a long term basis, founded on professionalism, personal service and high performance products.
As Woolcool continues to outperform conventional materials, we’re proud and excited to be leading the way in providing natural, sustainable insulated packaging for the food and pharmaceuticals sectors in the UK and also worldwide, with clients in Germany and France.
3R Sustainable Products are our exclusive UK distributor, helping customers to get started with Woolcool by supplying in smaller quantities.
Natural Materials Association
In 2013, Angela was named the inaugural chairperson of the Natural Materials Association, (NMA), established within IOM3 to provide a much-needed commercial focus for a diverse range of natural materials.
