Helping to feed the Nation
This is a heartfelt thank you to all our staff and colleagues that continue to work for the Robinson business during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Your support means we can supply the increased demand seen in food and essential items across supermarkets and retail outlets.
Our UK and Polish plastics businesses are considered as Key Industries within the Food and Drink sector, critical for ensuring that our nations have access to food and people are being fed.
Robinson-produced soup and sauce pots, bowls, and ready meal containers play a vital role to keep us all nourished during this troubled time. We are working hard with the supply chain of many retailers including Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda and Waitrose to fulfil the increase in orders. We also produce Domestos bleach bottles and other essential items, distributed throughout Europe serving as a front-line defence on home germ warfare.
Zillah Stevenson (Welfare Officer) has been working tirelessly to ensure our retired, elderly and vulnerable staff don't encounter any undue hardship.
With many office staff working from home to limit the risk of spread of the coronavirus, our biggest thank you goes to those colleagues who are continuing to come onto our sites in the UK and Poland, working to meet the increased demands of our customers and the market.
We are genuinely thankful to every member of staff. We would like to stress how valued you all are for doing your bit to support, not just the business, but each other.
With us all being witness to many kind acts, solidarity and altruistic behaviour, let us keep this at the front of our minds during this time. The care and compassion we show each other now will define the strength of the Robinson Group going forward.

Robinson Supplies the Right Bottle to Lead in Disinfectant
Fabulosa Ltd is a family-run business based in Crewe, Cheshire. It manufactures multi-surface, ready-to-use disinfectants under the ‘My Fabulosa’ brand. It chose to partner with Robinson as it needed a reliable supplier that could provide a custom-moulded PET bottle from tooling that is dedicated to supplying only their filling lines.

Robinson is excited to be one of just 20 companies participating in Webpackaging LIVE, the world’s first virtual packaging exhibition. The innovative 3D stand will allow visitors to look at a range of products on virtual shelves, including both Robinson's plastic and premium paperboard packaging, and the virtual exhibition stand really lets people see what Robinson has to offer.

COVID-19 – Our Response
As a global packaging manufacturer, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. At Robinson Packaging Innovation we are working to ensure the best safety for all our employees and work colleagues. Robinson staff are making a collective effort to work remotely and keep providing the best services to our clients and partners.
Herbs & Spice Packaging Gets 30% Food Grade RPET
Herbs and Spice packaging will be enhanced with the introduction of our 100ml PET jar manufactured as standard with 30% Food Grade RPET included. These containers are also ideal for baking ingredients and sprinkles and come with a variety of closures to choose from.
Robinson have developed tooling for a 300ml Tamper Evident container and lid for the new McVitie’s on-the-go range. Manufactured in PP and able to be decorated with In-Mould or Post-Mould labels, this pack is the perfect On The Go solution and Pladis McVitie’s have been the first to take advantage of this for their range of Mini Bites.
Robinson Packaging has developed a range of custom moulded, tamper-evident bowls and lids, for the re-launch of Asda’s Health Range of chilled ready meals. The project to develop the 500ml and 900ml packs had a demanding time constraint with no margin for error, as Asda Health is an existing range that is sold across all Asda stores.
Robinson Packaging have always been quick to adopt new technology, and as part of an on-going development plan, they have invested in the latest state of the art 3D printer technology and new tool room machinery to strengthen their custom project rapid prototyping and pilot tool capabilities at their Kirkby-in-Ashfield site.
