A skillet box is similar to a tuck-end box but perfectly suited to larger runs and mechanical in-line gluing applications for the food industry. The two ends are glued after packing and are one of the most cost-effective carton styles available for larger volumes. If your co-packer or production plant has the machinery to auto-fill cartons, skillets are usually the most cost-effective packaging option.
Our Carbon Balanced Print status means that all your packaging produced through us has had its entire carbon footprint offset by our investment in the World Land Trust. For more information about how this benefits you, click here.
These printed skillet cartons come in a range of board weights and finishes including gloss, matt and uncoated. We also have a range of speciality papers and boards including Kraft, metallic, GF Smith and many more for luxury packaging.
Skillets are pre-glued on the side seam and packed flat for easy storage, in sizes customised to fit your products.
We deliver locally in the UK and around the world to your processing plant or hold in stock for call-off to enable a fast and seamless operational flow.
