Is your food manufacturing business ready for the Christmas rush?

Christmas 2021 is set to be an indulgent celebration for families and friends who weren’t able to celebrate together last year due to covid restrictions.

From Christmas dinner to boxes of chocolate, food will be a major part of our festivities in the UK. But how can food manufacturing businesses increase operations in a cost effective way during this busy time of year? phs Teacrate has the perfect solution.

phs Teacrate has three state of the art wash facilities located across the UK. These facilities ensure  our crates are always germ and bacteria free. The wash plants also have the capability to clean customer’s own Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) equipment; regardless of where you purchased them.

How does the phs Teacrate wash process work?
