What are meat crates and why are they important for the electrical industry?

At phs Teacrate, we know our clients need the best. With successful businesses to run, staff to train and customers to satisfy, only the best-in-class will do. That’s why our range of meat crates is second-to-none – and, whether you’re purchasing, renting or using our industry-leading cleaning service, our prices are highly competitive.  

Why use meat crates? 

If you're an industrial client who frequently transports goods, opting to purchase or hire professional meat crates is a wise choice. Not only is it cost-effective, but it's also highly efficient in the long term. Phs Teacrate offers leading products specifically designed to endure the sometimes-harsh conditions and demands of transportation and storage. In addition to durable construction, we also offer a diverse selection of sizes and styles to cater to each client's unique requirements. Our meat crates have a range of additional benefits, too, thanks to our products’ robustness, ease of cleaning and stackability, and our environmentally friendly ethos. 

What sets phs Teacrate meat crates apart? 

Phs Teacrate meat crates are containers used for transporting and storing meat products to legal health and safety standards. We offer a range of sizes and styles, from small crates for individual cuts of meat to larger crates for whole carcasses. They’re made of durable plastic and have smooth surfaces, so they’re easy to clean and maintain. 

We’re a UK-leading supplier of crates, handling equipment and packaging products, moving over 9 million cases each year and supporting industries such as pickup and storage, food processing and distribution, and retail – making us the UK's leading box rental provider.  

We’ll help you to find the right crate and size for your requirements and we’ll deliver on time, every time, with next business day delivery as standard.  

Why are our meat crates the environmentally sustainable option? 

phs is committed to environmental sustainability, and our reusable meat crate hire and purchase services mean that industrial clients can opt for the sustainable choice. By reducing waste and encouraging the reuse and recycling of materials, we offer a service that’s much more environmentally friendly than disposable packaging. This is an ideal choice for clients who want to minimise their carbon footprint and support sustainable practices.  

Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) – reusable food transportation equipment – is becoming more popular than disposable packaging for transporting and storing fresh produce. As well as being beneficial for the environment, it’s also great in terms of finance. Phs Teacrate’s meat crate washing facilities are fully equipped with top-of-the-line apparatus and have the ability to clean all sorts of RTP equipment, including plastic trays, pallet boxes, and plastic pallets.  

Beyond meeting national legal standards of hygiene, we also ensure that equipment is washed to meet your specific needs and standards, so you be sure you’re maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness.
