Woolcool is a company that was founded on principles of sustainability, using natural materials to produce ecologically-sound chilled packaging that not only protect its contents, it also looks after the planet.
2020 was a year that will be remembered for a pandemic that swept the globe, bringing tragedy to millions, enforcing lockdowns, social distancing and disrupting business and livelihoods. Yet, on the whole, it brought out the best in people.
At Woolcool we have invested heavily in exploring the science behind our product, not just in the way it works, but right down to the inherent properties of the fibre, and we continue to do so.
Wool is an age-old material, whose properties have been formed over millions of years of evolution. Yet it has been ignored in recent times, and replaced by man-made alternatives. Until now.
The last ten years have seen a renaissance in insulated packaging for food and pharma, whether that’s delivering frozen goods, sending medical supplies via courier or transporting large shipments in refrigerated vehicles.
At Woolcool, we often choose to support smaller local charities – caring and determined grassroot groups that struggle to find funding through the channels open to larger organisations. It’s an opportunity to lend our voice to champion their work.
Sustainability is one of the buzzwords of our age. Prompted by concerns over the climate crisis and changing attitudes to waste and pollution, businesses and organisations of all kinds are including sustainability more and more in their decision making.
When it comes to insulated packaging for temperature sensitive products, the pharmaceutical sector is understandably demanding. When delivering medicines, vaccines and other kinds of clinical and medical goods, a client’s health can be put at risk if packaging fails.
Think of temperature controlled food packaging – what do you see? Perhaps the most traditional use for chilled food packaging has been transporting meat and fish, ensuring fresh delivery of perishable protein-based food.
Woolcool is a woman-led business, and one thing that struck us as we considered our approach to our work, our partnerships and the wider business world was that this makes us relatively unusual in the sectors we occupy.
