In the past two years Par-Pak Europe has become Tims Dairy sole supplier of SOT's for all their products
Tims Dairy was established as a family business in central London in 1949 and remains a privately owned company producing award winning high quality Greek style yogurts. In 1995 the success of the company and its exponential growth triggered a re-location to larger premises for their dairy - a former farm site in the heart of Buckinghamshire.
In 2009 demand for their yogurt, as a result of the popularity of their foodservice range, led to the creation of a premium range of yogurts for retail. This range comprises bio-live Greek style, live wholemilk and low fat yogurts, all made with fresh British milk and cream and only natural ingredients. Along with their foodservice offering business growth is a glowing testimony to the company’s Cypriot heritage, passion, skill and experience.
In the past two years Par-Pak (now part of the Waddington Europe Group of companies) has become Tims Dairy sole supplier of SOT’s for all of their products. Chris Timotheou, Managing Director comments: ‘our confidence in Par-Pak Europe is a reflection of their service, attention to detail, quality of product and speed to react as well as customer service both internally and externally.’
The Waddington Group was recently chosen to design a 6 cavity display/shelf – ready SOT tray to present buttermilk pots. This latest brief to create an SOT from conception, on screen modelling to forming and finally delivery to Tims Dairy was undertaken in a short span of time –on schedule, to budget and to specification. During the process the design changed a number of times in order to ensure a perfect product fit. This proved challenging as the launch date was set in stone. Formerly the trays had twisted when being lifted up to the shelves, it was a challenging brief. Mindful of Tims Dairy environmental responsibilities and without increasing the weight, Par-Pak designed and produced a more robust tray that would remain rigid when being lifted to the shelf for display.
Tims Dairy was highly delighted with the whole project. Chris Timotheou, Managing Director praised Par-Pak for their speed of response, enabling the new buttermilk products to reach the market on time.
