Quantrelle Contract Packaging Company OHSAS 18001 & ISO 27001 Accreditations

Quantrelle Contract Packaging Company have been busy behind the scenes this year.

In addition to preparing for the new GDP Regulations, we have been working towards accreditation for both OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety) and  ISO 27001 (Information Security).

We are thrilled to be able to tell you that we have secured accreditation in both of these standards.

The OHSAS 18001 standard is designed to ensure that an organisation is committed to assessing risks and promoting a safe and healthy working environment for employees and visitors.

This certification is proof of our adherence to the high standards set by the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) Project Group.

Our Contract Packaging Company have achieved this important award through our dedication to safety by identifying, controlling and managing risks to keep our employees, and visitors to the premises in which we work, safe.

An annual external audit is carried out by a third party where our practices and systems are assessed to confirm that standards remain high and that any non-conformances are noted for rectification.

ISO 27001 is recognised worldwide as the standard for information security management.

We have shown that we have reached the high standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) through our achievement of the ISO 27001 certification.

To gain the ISO 27001 award, we have proved that we could not only prevent but defend against potential data system vulnerabilities. This achievement was due to our comprehensive suite of information security controls and the management system we introduced to ensure these controls remain efficient and continue to meet our customers’ needs.

An annual audit is carried out by an external third party to ensure our systems continue to meet the stringent requirements set out in the ISO 27001 standard.

These accreditations compliment our existing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.

Why Use A Contract Packaging Company?

A Contract Packaging Company is basically what it says – a packaging company that offer services on the basis of a contract. There is a lot that goes into packaging, from the initial design and creation, to the final product sitting on the shelves of the local Supermarket, Wholesaler or Retailer. This is why many businesses choose to outsource these tasks to professional contract packaging companies so they can save time and money.

Contract packaging companies can specialise in different methods of packaging or like Quantrelle, they can offer a vast range of packaging options. At Quantrelle, the range of services we can offer are clamshell and blister packaging, Eco packaging, shrink and sleeve wrapping, pallet and pop-up displays and more, so whatever packaging your business may need, we will go over and above to ensure you are happy with the finished product and service.

As a company that offers contract packaging, we provide the expert knowledge, the labour and the equipment, packaging is one less thing you have to worry about. If you need regular packaging to be undertaken, then our services could help save you time and money, we also ensure that all packaging is completed within your time schedule and up to the high quality and standards that you expect.

Whilst you can focus on the sales and marketing of your product, the packaging aspect can be left in the safe hands of a contract packaging company like us, taking a huge weight off your mind.

How Our Eco Clam Pack Is Helping The Environment

After the recent Blue Planet series on TV, awareness about how plastic is negatively affecting our environment and its inhabitants is becoming a more dynamic concern. Each year, an estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans, ranging from plastic bottles to plastic straws. This is having a worrying effect on those that call the ocean their home – turtles are being suffocated and whales and seals are becoming entangled in the floating plastics. Some sea creatures are even eating the plastic mistaking it for food. Something needs to change!

As a packaging company, Quantrelle wants to make a difference by managing it’s plastic output, which is where our Eco Clam Pack comes in. Our Eco Clam Pack is a sustainable method of packaging which reduces the amount of plastic used in packaging by up to 65%*! This pack contains recycled paper materials as well as recycled plastic, and produces a more premium result. The shelf appeal for our Eco Clam Pack is enhanced by allowing enough space for branding and messaging as well as eye catching aesthetics.

We have also designed our Eco Clam Pack to be opened without the need for a sharp tool once the consumer has purchased the item. One negative we hear about regular clam packaging is the issue of opening up the plastic and getting into the product. This issue is alleviated with our Eco pack, it doesn’t mean your product is not protected within this packaging, it simply allows separation and the individual items to be recycled individually.

So it’s a no brainer really, our sustainable Eco Clam Pack is the way forward if we want to make a difference to our environment – it may be a small step, but it can go a long way!

For more information on our Eco packaging or our other packaging services, visit our website or get in touch today. We would love to hear about any other ideas you may have to help make a difference to our environment.
