Fresh Produce Sleevers

With over 14 million ready meals sleeved around the world on Keymac sleevers every week, Keymac know a lot about inserting a tray into a pre-glued sleeve. Their entry into the fresh produce packing market last year in response to the global war on plastics has been well received and our vast sleeving experience has led to the development of a machinery range to handle loose fruit packed into a cardboard tray. Keymac is now supplying Sleevers to growers and packers all over the world and has developed their machines to offer alternative pack styles for produce.
