The Universal Flexible Packaging Ltd Team



Services Universal Flexible Packaging Ltd Provide

​​​​At Universal Flexible Packaging, we serve customers within the food industry including confectionery, nuts, sugar, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

Contract Packaging

UFP sees contract packaging as one of the most valuable services we are able to offer our customers. Our BRC-A certified, purpose built facilities can handle any dry/ambient-related packaging requirements except powdered goods.

Skinny Packs

As a leading inventor of the skinny pack, our customers have benefited from the unique properties of this packaging.


UFP has a variety of different types of racking to hold your materials and finished goods ready to be packed or sent out to be put on shelves.

Design & Concept

UFP has an outstanding studio who will design your product and keep you in touch through every step of the process.


We have a loyal relationship with many different businesses who can provide you with the transportation you need.

Film Sales

As well as packing, we also do film sales. We can supply and cut a wide range of different films for different needs.

One of the main challenges for a startup in the food industry is finding suppliers who have the patience and resilience to support the vagaries of trying to build a food brand in a fiercely competitive market.

In Uniflex, we at Wallaroo Foods have found the perfect partner. Not only can we rely on the vast experience that they bring, packing for the biggest brands in the UK, but what is really great is the amount of flexibility and personal attention a small company like ours receives. In a very short span of time, we’ve forged fantastic relationships with the team at Uniflex who have become an extension of our supply function, from design, to packing and quality, technical to warehousing & distribution. We at Wallaroo couldn’t possibly ask for more!

UFP helped us take our first product to market by providing creative packaging solutions. Their packing capabilities, in-house design time, and strong network of material providers, allowed us to create a bespoke product for our customers. They truly are a one-stop-shop.
