IBC 1000 Litres
As our core business, we specialise in delivering 1000 litre palletised IBCs and offer unparalleled prices and service levels.
A Green service
We have always operated a “no-fuss” collect and recycle service allowing us to keep costs low and greatly reduce our plastic waste.
25 Litre Drums
The smallest containers we provide are 25 litre drums,
minimum order quantity is 32 drums (800 litres).
Orders of less than a pallet
If you need to order a smaller quantity, we work closely with Vinegar Tips who can supply many of our vinegars in smaller, more flexible, quantities.
Please note, we require all our customers to have access to a fork lift truck at the delivery site for unloading.
We cannot provide tail lifts as our pallets are too heavy for manual handling.

Another year has gone by already and we're happy to complete another successful BRC audit. We're a little dissappointed to have just missed AA this time but it was still a very good report and gives us something to aim for next year. Well done everyone!
We are happy to share a photo of our new Euro 6 Volvo tractor unit. This will be replacing an older, less clean Euro 5 truck and will be another step towards making our company a little bit greener. We think she's a beauty!
Well it's been a long and difficult 18 months but things have finally settled down enough to have our BRC audit and I'm very happy to say that our staff have coped brilliantly with all the disruptions and managed to achieve another AA audit. Well done!
