Shopping Trolleys

Three shopping trolleys to make shopping a smooth ride for your customers

When was the last time you thought of the plumbing in your house or your car’s wipers? Probably when they stopped working they way they should. These are products that which provide an essential but unremarkable service.

Shopping trolleys fall in the same category. Besides, when kids are having joyrides, people hardly ever gush over a smoothly operating trolley. However, the moment they get one with a wonky wheel, they just lose their mind!

Shopping carts or trolleys form an essential part of the shopping experience. If you own or manage a supermarket, shopping mall, or any large store, you need them to ensure your customer’s shopping journey is a smooth one.

Collapsible Crates

Collapsible Crates For Effortless Delivery And Storage

Collapsible crates are the solution for a range of delivery options

The pandemic has changed the way NZ businesses are operating. It’s expected the changes will last beyond the current crisis, as people expect delivery of household goods and higher standards of care from businesses.
To help you deliver your business goods easily, our collapsible crates are perfect. In a range of sizes, there’s one for every task.

Convenient and easy

Our crates are designed for optimal efficiency, with easy to hold handles so you can carry items easily. There is a space for labels, so you can store goods and easily access just what you need without having to unpack every crate. The collapsing mechanism is super simple, with no hooks or clips—just push the ends down and the sides automatically fold in flat.

Space efficient

These crates stack when full, which saves space when in transit or being used to store goods. This helps to reduce shipping costs, and also avoids product damage.
They collapse when empty, to save on storage space in a warehouse, in a kitchen, in the transit van- where-ever you use them.

Hard wearing and long-lasting

The plastic is made from food-grade polypropylene. This means these crates are safe for transporting of food and food products. The plastic itself is durable and hardwearing, able to deal with being stored outside in a yard. It also takes the knocks that happen during loading, unloading and transit.
These crates are better than timber crates in many ways. There are no nails, splinters or mould to worry about. They are lighter and therefore easier to carry and move and are compatible with forklifts and conveyor belts.

Keep your produce in immaculate condition

Finally, these crates keep your products safe. Whether it’s delicate fruit like strawberries or ripe avocadoes, crates ensure they aren’t damaged – unlike boxes, which can be dented, can collapse, or can get wet and disintegrate.
And when they get dirty, these crates are easy to clean; you can easily hose or wash them down. They can be treated with a number of different cleaning solutions, which help to keep your crates clean, compliant with health and safety laws, and keeps the quality of your produce high.

Our range of commercial grade collapsible crates

We have a range of sizes to suit almost any product and need. Our range of crates all easily stack with each other, regardless of size.

36L collapsible crate (600 x 400 x 200mm) is our smallest crate

40L collapsible crate (600 x 400 x 22mm)

Our 48L black crate (600 x 400 x 260mm) is our largest size. Perfect for bulky or lighter products.

What are collapsible crates used for?

These vented crates are used in a wide variety of industries and businesses. Fruit and vegetables are one common use, not only for transporting goods but also for storage and display when they are at the store or market. They are the perfect size and shape for almost every imaginable type of produce.
The dairy industry use vented crates because the plastic functions perfectly in fridges and freezers. Unlike timber, which swell and warp, the plastic retains its shape and form. The plastic can also be sanitised and washed easily, part of the strict food safety standards around dairy.
Bakeries use vented crates to ensure their goods don’t get squashed or damaged in transit. Also, because often breads etc are packed when still warm, the vents allow steam to be diffused and stop the product from getting soggy.
Commercial kitchen use vented crates for all the reasons above. To meet strict food safety standards, to allow fridge-freezer-transport with no warping or damage, and simply due to the ease of use.

Talk to us about our plastic recycling, as all our produce crates can be recycled when they reach the end of their lifespan. This creates a circular pattern of use, which is great for the environment, as well as your business environmental standards.

January Featured Product – Acrylic Card Holder Range

Got something to say? Why not do it with our range of acrylic cardholders!


A6 portrait double-sided card holder (ADS1B)

When customers sit down at a restaurant, one of the first things they do is pick up the flyers or displays on the table. These displays are one of the quickest and most reliable ways to grab the attention of the diner, and the easiest way to highlight a special offer, new menu, or information. There’s not always time for wait staff to inform diners about specials, so this is a fool-proof way to ensure the message is communicated.

These displays are made from 2mm thick clear plastic, allowing double-sided brochures for maximum impact. These are also easy to wipe clean, so they stay looking good for longer.

Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, and with 3mm thick acrylic.


A5 portrait double-sided card holder (ADS3B)

Made from clear 2mm thick robust acrylic, these card holders sit prominently on any restaurant table, reception counter or display stand. They are an excellent way to highlight a special offer or communicate information to customers. They stand up with no special tape or adhesives needed, so they are simple to move around as required, or quickly remove when the deal ends or the product runs out.

Unlike traditional triangle tent cards, the advertising inside the plastic doesn’t get worn or dirty. The outside of the holders are simple to wipe and keep clean, ideal for restaurants and busy retail outlets.
Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, and with 3mm thick acrylic.


A4 portrait double-sided card holder (ADS5B)

When you sit at a restaurant table, what’s the first thing you notice? It’s probably the on-table advertising. It’s literally 50cm in front of you, and you’re going to be looking at it for 30 minutes, at least. If you’ve ever read the back of a sugar packet or bottle of tomato sauce at the dinner table, you can understand why the table-top is prime advertising space.

These double- sided A4 card holders offer maximum bang for your marketing buck. Pop a colour flyer in the sleeve with your new dishes or drink specials so that your customers know what’s new for them to try. Alongside free samples, this is one of the best ways to advertise a new dish.

Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, and with 3mm thick acrylic.


A7 portrait single-sided card holder (ASS0B)

These displays are great for reception counters, maître d’ stations or retail spaces. A single- sided display with an upward tilt makes it easy for customers to see the information inside. The clear acrylic is easy to keep clean, and dust, fingerprints and grime can be removed with a single swipe, keeping the environment clean and hygienic.

Simply load your advertising from the bottom and slide it in. It stands unassisted on any flat surface, and is a simple way to share information, inform diners or customers, and get attention on your promotion.

Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, in 2mm or 3mm thicknesses.


A6 portrait single-sided card holder (ASS1B)

It’s nachos night at the pub, and the A6 card holder on the table lets everyone know about it. When they sit down, aside from ordering a beer, perusing the table advertising is the first thing they do. This is valuable marketing space, make sure you’re utilising it with these A6 card holders.

These are superior to traditional tent cards because they are easy to keep clean and hygienic, with a quick wipe needed to keep them looking fresh. The deal can be quickly swapped each week to remain current, they are easy to load from the bottom, only taking a few seconds to refresh your marketing.

Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, in 2mm or 3mm thicknesses.


A4 portrait single-sided card holder (ASS5B)

If your restaurant or business has a series of events coming up, the tabletop is the perfect place to advertise it. These A4 card holders are the best way to do so— inescapable and easy to access. A colourful list of your karaoke nights, quiz nights, big sports events or ladies night 2-for-1 deals alerts your patrons to what’s happening and why they need to attend.

The A4 display offers a large area for information, but the vertical display doesn’t take up much space on the table. The clear plastic is easy to keep clear of dust and sticky fingerprints, unlike printed tent cards, which start to look worn within days.

Also available in A3 to A7 sizes, in 2mm or 3mm thicknesses.

December Featured Product – Commercial Quality Wheelie Bins

Wheelie bins are more than just rubbish disposal. Use them for storage of food ingredients to allow easy transport and safe storage.

Wheelie bins offer smart and easy storage

Designed for convenience, wheelie bins are highly functional and used across industries, and not just for waste disposal. They are considered to be a key component of food processing equipment and are often used in supermarkets and bakeries to store ingredients.

If you are looking for a safe bulk storage solution, wheelie bins are the perfect choice. You can choose from a wide range of sizes and capacities to suit your needs – if an 80l wheelie bin is too small, you can opt for a 140L wheelie bin, 240l wheelie bins or even something bigger. Beside the varied capacities available, wheelie bins have several other features that work in your favour.

They are versatile

These bins are made to keep their contents safe and are cleverly designed so they’re easy to use. Wheelie bins are simple to keep clean and meet hygiene standards easily. This is why they are often used to store food and bakery ingredients. They can be adapted to a number of different uses; you are only limited by your imagination.
They are often used for waste management in many establishments. These are especially useful as a self-supply option for those stores without contracted waste disposal.

They are so easy to use

You can choose between the 2-wheeled bin or the 4-wheeled bin models. Both make transporting goods much easier on your staff. Thanks to the wheels, moving ingredients from one spot to another becomes much quicker. Even heavy loads can simply be wheeled around without any physical exertion. This way, your employees can avoid lifting and don’t have to strain their backs or knees. You have this advantage whether you’re using the 120l wheelie bins or the larger 360l wheelie bin.

They are reusable and cost-effective

Wheelie bins are made with tough HD polyethylene material so they can comfortably withstand daily wear and tear. Even the flip lid is made to be strong enough to tolerate impact that is commonly expected in a processing plant or a supermarket. Thanks to their tough construction, wheelie bins can be reused for years which is more economical for you in the long run.

They are designed for efficiency

Made with flip lids, secure locking systems and wheels, these bins have been thoughtfully designed to make work as efficient as possible. They are also made with lids in different colours (for example: grey, green, red, blue) so they can fit in with any colour coding system that you have in place at your establishment. Colour coding different ingredients is a reliable method of preventing cross contamination. The sides of these bins are smooth with minimal or no grooves in the design. This was done deliberately so that they are easier to clean and can maintained with minimal effort.

They are very durable

Constructed from HD Polyethylene, these bins are extremely durable. Besides being able to store a very wide variety of products, they are also corrosion resistant and withstand outdoor elements much better than most other materials. This comes in handy if you are using them for waste management and need to store them outdoors. In this sense, they are much more durable than metal storage bins.
Wheelie bins are not just useful in large retails stores, factories or processing plants, they are often used for domestic use and in smaller stores as well. They are frequently used to safely store grains and other supplies in small retail spaces and bakeries. In individual homes, wheelie bins are often used to store things like dry dog food which needs a dry storage bin that is difficult for dogs to access.
