We are pleased to share that New Zealand plant-based yoghurt manufacturer Raglan Food Co has recently launched its new snackable coconut yoghurt range, packaged in paperboard pots and sealed with pre-cut aluminium lidding from Chadwicks. Working closely with Raglan Food Co, we were able to provide die-cut aluminium lids that perfectly fit the existing tub sizings. While one size aligned with standard measurements, the other size didn’t, which could have resulted in the need [...]
Lidding plays a crucial role in ensuring food safety and extending its shelf life. Two commonly used types of lidding are die-cut lids and reel-fed lids as they provide a secure seal to pots and containers keeping food uncontaminated and fresh. While both types are made from similar materials, die-cut lids offer several advantages over reel-fed lids, with the most significant being reduced material waste during the manufacturing process. Die cut lids are also more [...]

At Chadwicks, we pride ourselves on having a wide selection of cutting tools at our disposal and, while we may not always have the exact size and shape that a customer is looking for, we often have something very similar, saving valuable time and money. Such as when free-from snacking brand, Crave, approached us with a unique request for pre-cut lidding on their new, mini breadstick and chocolate hazelnut dip snack pot, The Big Dipper, [...]
Pre-cut lidding not only ensures food safety, but also presents an opportunity for brands to engage with their customers by printing competitions and promotions on the lids. One of our recent projects with Bio&Me is a great example of this in action. The pre-cut, 95.5mm lids, which were printed in five colours on white PET co-ex combi with pin dot embossing, were used to seal Bio&Me's prebiotic yoghurt range while playing a pivotal role [...]
We are delighted to be working with family owned and operated rora dairy, since its decision to remove the ‘clip on lids’ from its yogurt pots and replace them with pre-cut lidding. The move to pre-cut lidding has also meant an upgrade of its sealing equipment from lidding equipment specialists, Seal-it Systems. ‘The transition process has gone very well. Our original lidding equipment was modified and upgraded on-site by SIS engineers with minimal disruption, and [...]
Chadwicks, was delighted to be able to work with Mighty Drinks on producing lidding for its dairy free ice cream range. The plant based, vegan-friendly ice cream from Mighty Drinks has the same indulgent decadence of ice cream, but without the dairy. Lids were printed in two varieties on white PET with pin dot embossing. Alastair Bearman, Sales and Marketing Director at Chadwicks, says: “ Demand for dairy free alternatives continues to rise, and it [...]
As we approach Christmas and the end of the year, we would like to express our thanks to our customers and partners for their continued loyalty. From everyone at Chadwicks we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with our lidding for Langage Farm’s newly launched exclusive Speculoos flavoured thick cream produced for M&S. The 50 micron PET lidding was printed four colours with pin dot embossing, and provides a secure seal for the luxury cream. Quality packaging is important to the success of any new product, particularly when it’s a premium brand and we are delighted that Langage Farm chose to work with Chadwicks.
It is always rewarding to be involved in a new product launch and even more so when it’s an award winning one, like the Co-op’s new GRO Mango and Passion Fruit Thick & Creamy Pot. Chadwicks’ lids can be seen on the vegan yogurt, which came first at the Quality Food Awards 2022. Manufactured by Meadow, the product was announced as the winner in the sweet treats and desserts category. We were delighted to work [...]
