How We Can Help Your E-Commerce Food Business

Economic pressures from the cost-of-living crisis continue to grow and impact UK households. However, many people are pivoting towards cost-saving dining options at home. From convenient home meal kit solutions to online food shop orders; savvy spenders are now looking to appreciably lower food costs and food waste with home delivery services to limit over-spending at supermarkets and restaurant dining.

Without the correct equipment, it will be hard for distribution warehouses to keep up with this increased demand. Luckily, phs Teacrate offer an extensive stock of food crates available to support your business during this busy time of year, and beyond.

From standard food crates to hygienic pallets, phs Teacrate offers a range of handling equipment specifically designed to support the food manufacturing sector during the New Year period, and beyond.

Supporting the food supply chain
Hygiene is a major consideration in food supply chains. Therefore, all crates from phs Teacrate are washed to adhere with ISO 14001 accreditation.

The phs Teacrate wash process is very thorough, especially for equipment required in the food industry. All crates are prewashed, main washed, and rinsed. We can also dry to <10g of water per tray if required.

To confirm crate cleanliness is to a high standard, phs Teacrate routinely swab test for evidence of bacteria, with RLU (Reflective Light Units) recorded and logged (by customer). This is particularly important for food supply chains.
