Traditionally Jetran has been used for non-food items and the only opportunity for food and confectionery producers to use this unique packaging is for pre-wrapped items.
Director Peter Lennie said: “For many years Bell have worked in the non-food sector and established a network of agents and distributors. Our plant in Luton operates the world’s largest production of clear tubing and with over 300 standard sizes we have excess capacity and are looking for new markets.
“When we introduced the new flat top design of end cap in 2015 more than half the enquiries we received were from food companies. Having consulted with them alongside our High Street customers it is clear that Jetran® is wanted in the food sector.”
Jetran packaging has been used by many of the world’s leading confectionery brands for gift sets.
Both designs have received international success and the Cadbury’s Éclair pack won the prestigious Indiastar packaging innovation award.
With a track record of nearly 40 years and exports to 17 countries the company is well positioned to deliver packaging solutions throughout Europe.
Bell has recently completed trial orders for presenting citrus fruits and other specialist fruit and vegetables, reporting positive feedback from customers. The packaging protects the product but also can be used as storage and is a useful container for other purposes after the product has been consumed.
