Product Sleeving at Magnavale

At Magnavale we have a range of added value services for our food manufacturing and food distribution partners. With the aim of simplifying and creating flexible supply chains we can offer our customers temperature-controlled storage and various added value services, such as date coding and sleeving, to prepare food products ready for onward despatch.

Packaging Sleeving Application

A packaging sleeve, commonly known as a belly band in the food industry, is a piece of cardboard, plastic or renewable alternative that wraps around the product. These sleeves usually contain key information such as best before / use-by dates, ingredients, allergens and nutritional information.

Often food manufacturers carry out their own sleeving processes, however, there are many advantages to choosing a third-party supplier to apply packaging sleeves ready for despatch.

Many food manufacturers opt to keep their product at frozen temperatures, in doing so shelf life is paused, and a printed date, which can be applied to belly bands, isn’t necessary until the product is despatched to retailers.

Once the stock is ready for release from our temperature-controlled facility, our team can apply the product sleeves as well as carrying out any other additional services such as date coding and microwave up-tempering.

As a result, customers utilising this service have significantly more flexible supply chains, and therefore produce less waste and reduce overall costs.

If you’re interested in food product sleeving, date coding, or any of our other services such as temperature-controlled storage, blast freezing and more, please call 01246 854999 or visit
