A UK packaging company is looking for a manufacturing agreement with a partner who could supply PET (polyethylene terephthalate) pots and cups for the food sector using thermoforming technology. The pots must be capable of taking print directly to the plastic. Ideally they are looking for partners in either Eastern Europe or possibly Turkey. The potential partner must be able to fulfill orders to the level of container load.
A well-established UK packaging design agency is currently buying from China PET (plastic) pots aimed at the food sector. They are looking for a supplier who produces cups / pots using thermoforming (or sometimes called vacuum forming) technology. They must also have the ability to print directly on to the plastic pots once formed. Their research has shown that costs in the UK and Western Europe for this type of tooling is substantially higher than their current supplier accordingly, they are looking for suppliers in either Eastern Europe or possibly Turkey to try to keep cost levels of tooling as close as possible to the current pricing. The UK company currently spend around 1,200,000 Euros for one client on these pots. There are three sizes of pot and four or five lids which go with them. They order usually in container loads from their current supplier so they could order 500,000 pieces of each size per order.
Attractive market opportunity for the suitable manufacturer. The company has established business relationships with large UK retailers, so large and regular orders expected.
