LVF has secured a deal to supply health food and snacks manufacturer, Good4U with a range of punnets and trays for its award winning products.
Good4U, a family-owned business based in Sligo, Ireland, grows and distributes healthy sprouts, seeds and pulse-based snacks, and fresh products to a growing number of international markets; and LVF will be supplying thermoformed packaging for its award winning Salad Toppers range.
Nigel Coates, managing director of LVF, said: “The growth in the health food market, particularly on-the-go snacks, has been phenomenal in recent years and Good4U has achieved a huge presence in the sector in a relatively short period of time.”
“To be given the opportunity to get on-board with them is a great reflection on the work we do, and in particular our commitment to producing environmentally friendly packaging, high in recycled content and itself easily recycled, which is a great fit for a customer operating in this market sector.”
Bernie Butler, managing director of Good4U, said: “LVF has impressed us on all aspects – from its green credentials through to its personal service and flexibility in terms of both production and delivery. Hopefully, these orders will represent just the beginning of a long relationship.”
