With the shift in national and international markets in the last 18months, Pixley Berries Juice have harnessed this change for good – with Octobox.
Pixley Berries have worked with Walton Industrial Containers and Octobox for over ten years; beginning with the desire to commit to using containers that were more sustainable and easier for their clients to use and return. Ultimately, Pixley Berries chose Octobox for its sustainability and low impact on the environment as well as the benefits to their customers.
“At the time we were looking for something more sustainable that we could be more in control of. We had been renting a solution previously, but some of our customers really struggled with it – sometimes not returning it back etc, and we knew then that ‘pome-based products’ was always going to exist for our business, so we decided to invest in Octoboxes.”
“We are specialist juice ingredient suppliers, we produce not-from-concentrate (NFC), concentrate and purees, octobox offered real solutions for us. They also fit perfectly in containers and has therefore made our global reach more accessible; they support our aseptic bags and reduce the likelihood of stress cracking. Their design is quite unique and therefore improves efficiency for getting it across the Atlantic, or wherever it needs to be – so for export, it’s great, likewise it provides a resilient and responsible pack format for our customers closer to home”.
Like almost every business Pixley Berries (Juice) had to pivot very quickly with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic affecting many of their major clients in hospitality. They were successful in securing a contract with a major retailer, supplying them with 100% British NFC Cloudy Apple juice, which led to an influx of enquiries with other retailers. This, alongside other clients storing their Octoboxes given the drop in movement in their contents; meant that Pixley Berries (Juice) saw a leap in demand for Octoboxes – and needed them quickly.
“They [Walton Industrial Containers] were brilliant. They turned our orders around and that helped us supply our chain too. We know that if we have an issue that we’re struggling to come up with a solution for on-site; they are very good at hearing the problem/proposals that we think can help drive efficiency or whatever it might be and coming up with solutions.”
At Walton Industrial Containers we love working in collaboration with our clients, ensuring they get the very best for themselves and their clients too. Octoboxes can be the perfect solution to so many industries and we love working with every one of them!
