ABOUT GM Packaging

GM Packaging has provided its clients with innovative solutions regarding takeaway and/or delivery food packaging supplies since 2001.

Catering and Food Service has a new dynamic. Brands need to respond faster and better to change to be able to create quality at scale.

Expectations of sustainability, service, and presentation demand more of brands, food manufacturers and the teams that lead them.

Brands need a responsive partner with brilliant standards that can connect supply chain intelligence, with market leading products, to create an advantage through consistent operational flow.

That is why we are here, to serve brands and those they serve, each and every time.

We take pain out of big brands food packaging supply chains through the following;

We are a Strategic Partner, not a just a ‘supplier’: We place great faith in understanding our client’s business challenges and partner with them by sitting on their side of the table to create solutions. We listen, digest, and deliver innovative solutions that draw on our many years of sector knowledge and experience, always with an eye on building mutual long-term relationships.

Supply Chain Intelligence: We have spent a lot of time and effort to develop a unique network or relationships and access globally which allows us to act with agility and imagination to source products for partners.  This has also developed a supply chain “know-how” which outstrips the knowledge in the customer, allowing us to add value by challenging and improving their supply chain practices. 

Phenomenal service ethic in all we do: At the very heart of who we are – born of our friendly North-Eastern roots – is a passion for personal service; a willingness to go the extra mile and a desire to make our client’s challenges our own. We’re a tight-knit team who never take their eye off the customer and do all we can to exceed their expectations, be they large or small!
