Gelpack joins CHSA scheme

30 June 2017

Leading manufacturer of refuse and recycling sacks and high performance flexible packaging Gelpack has joined the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) Plastic Refuse Sacks Accreditation Scheme. 

Membership of the scheme provides customers with the reassurance that they receive what they order; that products are fit for purpose and accurately labelled so that they know what is inside the packaging. Rigorous CHSA audits are carried out regularly to ensure that customers get what they pay for, or as the CHSA puts it, to demonstrate: "what's on the box is in the box." 

The new CHSA range includes 5, 10, 15 and 20 kg sacks, all available on rolls or flat-packed in cartons of 200. Cartons will display key dimensional information such as length, width and minimum net weight, as well as the special CHSA logo, which differentiates between light, medium, heavy and extra heavy duty sacks to help users identify the most appropriate product for their needs. 

Managing director Geoff Davis said: "Gelpack has been manufacturing quality sacks from its UK base for more than 45 years. Some of our distributors have asked for a CHSA product that gives their customers the added reassurance that this accreditation represents. Produced in the four most popular design weights, our new CHSA range allows us to offer an even more comprehensive choice."
