When Funky Nut Company, a small business manufacturing creative, healthier alternative peanut butters, were looking at developing their product range and tapping into the snack packs market, they needed a solution to seal in the freshness. Wanting a British manufacturer with reliable products and great service, Packaging Automation ticked the box from day one.

Being new to tray sealing Funky Nut Company were offered a full service by PA, covering advice and industry contacts to help with the sourcing of suitable trays and film. Also included as part of the free of charge support service was the preparation of presentation sample packs in our test kitchen to show prospective customers.

Funky Nut Company took advantage of PA’s hire scheme and hired a flexible, semi-automatic tray sealing machine which has increased their capacity and efficiency leading to cost savings.

Hiring a tray sealing machine allows customers to automate packing processes from day one with minimal investment. The hire scheme offers entry level machines on short term hire periods for seasonal products such as fruit with a sealing tool for one pack format on hire for a fixed weekly hire rate. At the end of an initial six month hire period, users have the option to return the machine and stop making payments, keep the machine at a reduced weekly rate or upgrade for a small uplift in cost to a quicker machine with a sealing tool to suit the same pack if demand for products is increasing.

Julian Campbell, Managing Director of Funky Nut Company, comments: “As a small but growing business we wanted to make a product that would stand out in a slow moving category. Putting nut butter into a snack format was one way of doing this. However, we knew nothing about sealing trays etc. but PA came to us with a mid-range machine that is ideal at our stage of growth. Every step was easy and the great customer service meant I could work on other projects.”
