Market Sectors

Meat Industry – beef, lamb, pork, chicken & game in all cuts, & most value added products have to be kept below +5°C. The only exceptions would be certain cured & smoked products. Their temperature is dependent on the method of curing, with a lot of them being able to be shipped at below +8°C.

Fishmongers – fresh fish & seafood can react dangerously with any temperature ramps & have to be kept at below +5°C, to maintain their freshness.

Dairy – most dairy products need to be kept at below +5°C, & this is the case with milk, cream, custard and butter. Cheesemongers predominantly need their cheeses to be kept between +5 to +8°C, & some whole hard cheeses can be kept between +8 to 15°C.

Frozen Products – The temperature control requirements of shipping frozen products are that the product should be kept at temperature of -18°C, with a tolerance of 3°C (not warmer than -15°C). There are several ways you can ship your goods using our systems, with either dry ice or gel packs which would be dependent on your product & the season.

With a lot of companies having to adapt to “The New Norm.“ our U Chill packaging range is also ideal for the online food market and restaurant deliveries.

Sizes available:

  • 250g
  • 300g
  • 400g

U Chill Temperature Range and Duration

Test results have shown that our U Chill packs will keep products below -2°C or between 2°C – 8°C for up to 72 hours.

We recommend that a coolant is used when shipping products that need to maintain a low temperature in transit.

U Chill Components

Metalised Polyester Inner

Metallised films are polymer films coated with a thin layer of metal, usually aluminium. They offer the glossy metallic appearance of an aluminium foil at a reduced weight and cost. Metallised films are widely used for food packaging.

Metallised nylon and polyethylene are used in the meat export market. The controlled permeation extends shelf life.

Corrugated Outer:

Our outer boxes are heavy duty double wall board that are FSC approved and can also be recycled.

Gel Packs:
