Shop chilled packaging solutions from Macfarlane Packaging

Chilled packaging, also called temperature controlled packaging or thermal packaging, is a type of specialist packaging used to preserve the temperature of your packaging during shipping.

This type of packaging is often used to ship products like food, including fresh and frozen meals, as well as meal kits. Other applications include using it to post chilled or frozen pet food. In addition, chilled packaging is often used for shipping pharmaceuticals and medicines too.

At Macfarlane Packaging, we have an extensive range of temperature controlled packaging products – including chilled packaging solutions available to buy online.

Frequently Asked Questions

The thermal packaging solution you need will depend on the product you’re shipping (e.g. perishability, weight, fragility, size), the temperature that needs to be maintained in the pack (ambient, chilled, frozen) and the shipping journey (e.g. how will you be shipping the product – by air or by courier networks etc).

You should also consider if there are any legal requirements for the particular product you’re shipping, such as food or pharmaceuticals. This may differ, depending on where you’re shipping to and from, especially if you’re shipping internationally.

This will depend on the chilled packaging product you’ve selected.

Outer cardboard boxes included with our temperature controlled packaging shipping kits can all be recycled, as can the TempGuard™ paper liners supplied with our RecycoolMe packs.

All Macfarlane Packaging thermal packaging products are labelled clearly with an Environmental Impact Rating which shows the type of material the packaging is made from, the percentage of recycled content and if you can recycle it.
