Cellux tape helps Gold Crown.

Cellux Tape Helps Gold Crown

Gold Crown Foods, the Liverpool-based independent tea and coffee blenders, are now using Cellux case sealing tape. They are using this particular tape because the previous tape failed in use.

Ian Povey, their operations directors, explained that they had packed a trial consignment of Earl Grey tea for an export delivery. The trial was initially passed by quality control but several days later transit tests indicated that every case had opened. It seemed that the bergamot oil had attacked the adhesive on the sealing tape and ruined it.

The potency of bergamot oil poses difficulties for tea packers but Ambassador Packaging Ltd of Winsford, Cheshire, tel: 0606558505, were able to advise how they supplied Swiss-made Cellux tape from stock.

Gold Crown repacked the consignment and the Cellux tape proved to be totally successful. Following this trial, Ambassador have regularly supplied reels of Cellux tape for use on the full range of Gold Crown's hand and machine carton sealing operations. These include bulk and packet packing of loose leaf teas for export and branded tea bags for various multiple customers.
