Frequently asked questions

Yorkshire Packaging Systems has consistently achieved AA grade BRC certification in the Global Standard for Storage and Distribution for many years, something which we know is of paramount importance to our customers. Our manufacturing site, Bollore Technologies, is also BRC certified. Both certificates are available upon request.

OPRL is an initiative, in conjunction with WRAP UK, to demonstrate recycling possibilities for packaging more widely and clearly. The On-Pack Recycling Label delivers a simple, UK-wide, consistent recycling message for use on both retailer private label and brand-owner packaging. Unlike other recycling labels, the scheme is based on current local authority recycling services and reflects what can be recycled, and where. This enables more consumers to recycle more material correctly, more often.

A call off order is a fantastic facility we use at YPS to ensure that we always have your shrink film ready for just when you need it! It offers our customers flexibility and freedom by reserving their shrink film in our large 20,000 sq ft warehouse, with the convenience of paying for it as they take it. All that is needed is a purchase order for an agreed amount of shrink film, from which amounts can be taken as and when required, until the purchase order has been completely fulfilled. This call off facility may help some customers delay price increases due to changes in the market, when arranged with their YPS account manager.

Shrink film is designed to constrict with the application of heat to produce a complete seal around an object. The finished effect is a plastic outer layer that is moulded around the shape of the product within. Stretch wrap (also known as ‘Pallet Wrap’) is used to secure items stacked together on a pallet prior to transportation, in order to provide stability and protection. Stretch film has an adhesive surface that clings to itself as it is wound around a load and the tension that is created maintains the bundled structure.
