By working with a number of key distributors in Northern Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia the business has been able to share its technology, packaging knowledge and knowhow with food manufacturers and fresh produce packers in these markets. The increasing popularity of packaged goods in these overseas markets has fuelled the rapid growth in export sales for PA.

Export sales is an important aspect of this strategy and we are delighted to have been identified as one of the top 100 SME exporters in the UK.”
