We were introduced to RollsPack by our manufacturing site early in the development of our Connect Foods brand. 5 years later and Rolls Pack are still our supplier of doy bags. They supported us early to help us establish our brand and continue to support us with short lead times, quality people to work with and, most importantly, quality products.
I have been dealing with Rollspack for over 2 years now, and their expertise in what they do is invaluable. The quality of both rewind/film and DOY pouches is first quality, and they always go out of their way on turnaround times and customer service, providing prompt feedback and response. Could not recommend highly enough. Definitely my preferred supplier.
I cannot speak highly enough about RollsPack. Their guidance and advice on innovative packaging has saved us freight costs and our product looks fantastic on the shelf. In our industry, lead times are always tight but with their local manufacturing they have turned our jobs around with lightning speed.
We have proudly been working with RollsPack for over 20 years. Their innovative approach and exceptional use of technology, combined with a personalised understanding of our specific business needs are key elements behind the long term relationship we have enjoyed with the company.
RollsPack are a highly professional company with excellent standards of workmanship and service. Always a pleasure to deal with, they really understand the true meaning of a partnership.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it important to have great food packaging?
Shopping today is a very visual undertaking. If a shopper is already locked in on what brand they wish to use then getting them to change their perspective can be difficult. The shopper may make up their mind well before ever coming into contact with food. Companies pick containers that are unique to their brand, and unique to their country and even the specific ingredient within the product – for instance in store retail packaging is often branded. Food packaging on the other hand may depend on unique packaging solutions and shapes (Coca-Cola for instance use a specific design for their glass bottle which has become synonymous with the brand). The only access to this at the point of sale is your packaging. Yes its true marketing will play a large role in creating that opportunity in the first place but It’s only when they’re at the actual shelves that they can make that call. The amount of noise consumers are exposed to these days many are so exhausted that it’s only when they reach the supermarket or cafe shelf that they’ll actually consider what they want to purchase. Excellent food packaging means that when this time comes you’ve got a chance. The best food packaging combines a great marketing campaign with great food packaging which shows the customer that this business understands them.
How Good are Biodegradeable Food Packaging options?
The biggest issue with compostable/oxo-biodegradable materials is that they require perfect conditions for them to break down and become environmentally friendly and reduce their environmental impacts. It’s not until they’re exposed to the right level of sunlight oxygen and water that they actually achieve this effect can begin to break down.This requires substantial consumer education, guidance and often a separate guidance document. Making the actual process of composting packaging quite a complex problem to solve. It’s at this point that we reach the problem because when you consider the conditions that this oxo-biodegradable packaging will be in during their time in landfill then we begin to understand how unlikely they are to get the resources they need. In the future as technology progresses biodegradable solutions will become a bigger part of the fix but as it stands today recyclable options that can be recycled through programs like REDcycle are far more environmentally friendly.
Tell me about REDcycle?
At RollsPack we are proud to partner with REDcycle to offer our customers more sustainable packaging solutions for a wide range of industries materials. REDcycle is a partnership between retailers manufacturers and consumers. It works by placing specially marked bins at local supermarkets where consumers can drop their soft plastics off. These are then collected by a company called Replas who take the discarded items and turn them into useful resources. Consumers often get confused as to which products fall into the ‘recycled materials’. The answer to this question lies in the scrunch test. If the plastic can be scrunched up then it goes into the REDcycle bins at the local supermarket. If it cannot then it goes in the recycle bin. This practice of testing the whether or not a product and material can be recycled also helps to ensure that the container is empty before entering the recycling process. Studies show that customers who become aware of the environmental impact surrounding their lifestyle choices also leads to a reduction of food waste.
At RollsPack how do we approach food packaging?
At RollsPack we embrace the technical challenges of producing great wholesale food packaging. We’re veterans of the packaging Australia scene and we are known for our high-quality, award-winning designs in our stand up pouches & flat bottom pouches. This commitment led to our winning multiple awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The best food packaging material entices consumers’ taste buds. It gets them thinking about the meal they’ll have it with or perhaps they’ll just eat the contents straight out of the packet (when it comes to ready-to-eat food the possibilities are endless) depending on the product of course! Our passion is food packaging and we pride ourselves on producing some of the best food packaging solutions in the world.
Do RollsPack offer tamper evident packaging?
RollsPack’s tamper evident packaging increases the likelihood that consumers will be able to identify that a product has been tampered with before coming into contact with food (or food waste). Our packaging solutions offer multiple options in relation to the way that evidence can be presented to the shipper or buyer. In short though, this is an entire category of our product offering, we are well established within this niche and provide assistance to many sections of society and government. Tamper evident packaging reduces food waste as we have seen a reduction in packages being opened just to see what is inside (which often would result in that package being discarded by the retailer).
Packaging Design & Social Media
Social media channels such as Instagram have become a very effective way for cafes, restaurants and delivery companies to showcase food quality using pictures and visual advertising. This is why it’s so important to have great packaging design to take advantage of the immense opportunity the digital age has created for your shop where people can order online from locations Australia wide. Environmentally friendly packaging is also a great way to stand out on these platforms but while many have gone for compostable or oxo-biodegradable solutions. We suggest recyclable disposable food grade food packaging options instead as they are actually more sustainable. This consumer demand is certainly relevant Australia wide but more prevalent in metropolitan locations because it is often where Instagram’s younger audience are.
What type of packaging is Aseptic Packaging?
Aseptic packaging is the process of placing commercially sterilised food in a sterile package that is then sealed in an aseptic atmosphere. What this means is that the food is clean, and sterile. RollsPack provides packaging containers, to you the customer, you may choose to seal the food product in an aseptic environment.
Are some foods not suited to certain kinds of food packaging?
Some types of food packaging, although they are made from conventional plastics, are not designed as a barrier material for fresh fruits.
One of the reasons for this is that these food packaging solutions are air tight. Fresh fruit is usually stored in the open and this solution is aimed at a food product that needs more than its natural protection from the elements (like a peel).
