PALLITE®, an award-winning international designer and manufacturer of paper honeycomb board products from Northamptonshire, UK, has expanded their sustainable packaging range to include thermally insulative packaging – ThermaLITE by PALLITE®. Made from 100% recycled materials and 100% kerbside recyclable after use, the new range of insulative paper honeycomb liners offer a strong, lightweight, and cost-effective alternative to polystyrene (EPS) and foam packaging. PALLITE® helps businesses act more sustainably by reducing their carbon footprint and eliminating single-use plastic while also helping them become more circular.


The new packaging range, designed primarily for the food and beverage industry and the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector, uses a paper honeycomb cell structure to help goods maintain their temperature for longer. Moreover, honeycomb structures are proven to be pound-for-pound stronger than steel, meaning products are well protected in transit.


Over 26% of Europeans have used a meal subscription service, and the online grocery market in Europe is expected to grow 66% by 2023. E-commerce and home deliveries are now growing faster than ever thanks to the global pandemic, but it begs the question of what’s happening to all the extra packaging?


It’s estimated that 72% of plastic and polystyrene packaging is either sent to landfills after use or illegally dumped or littered each year. In addition, leading research suggests a staggering eight million tonnes of plastics leak into the ocean each year – the equivalent of dumping the contents of a lorryload of household waste into the water every minute. Many of these plastics do not biodegrade quickly and can take thousands of years to break down, harming wildlife and ecosystems in the process.


Available in a range of thicknesses, ThermaLITE by PALLITE® is also offered as sets of pre-cut liners for standard size corrugate boxes, offering the ideal eco-shipper for fresh and perishable produce.
