Packaging food items is a practise ‘as old as the road to Rome.’ Long before, solutions existed to make it easier to transport food and keep it fresh for longer. Empack, the packaging trade fair in the Netherlands, describes a journey: from earthenware pots and nettle leaves via the first tin can to biobased packaging.
Enamelled objects and jewelry have been found in the Middle East from around 5000 BC. In ancient Egypt, about 2000 BC, ointment bottles, vases, and jewelry were already made from it. However, the storage function of food in glass jars was delayed until 1200 BC. In the second century, the Chinese used dried mulberry bark to wrap food. It is still used to make high-quality paper from the pulp. There are various types of food packing: ice-cool food packing, gel packs, and insulated delivery boxes.

What is the gel in ice packs?
An ice or gel pack is a transportable plastic bag filled with refrigerant gel. Before use, the contents are frozen in a freezer. Due to water’s high latent heat of fusion, both ice and other non-toxic refrigerants (usually water) can absorb a lot of of ambient heat, long before raising above 0°C.
Coolpack gel packs
Water and gel ice packs are excellent refrigerants for transporting fish, meat, cheese, chocolate, medicines, food, or flowers. The gel packs are ideal when there is no return flow, and you need competitively priced refrigerants that don’t necessarily come back to you. That isn’t to say they can’t be reused however, simply re-freezing the packs in the freezer prepares them for their next application. Our delivery boxes are lined with foil made from a leak-proof solid polyethylene making them durable and long-lasting.
Ice Packs for Passive Cooling & Thermal Management
Ice packs can be used to manage temperatures of a range of items. By ensuring the target ambient temperature aligns with the temperature capabilities of your gel pack, a constant, well-regulated temperature can be achieved, which is perfect for sensitive goods requiring consistent temperatures.
Hot / Cold Plates
Ice packs can facilitate the transportation of outstanding food for buffet displays. By placing a number of gel packs in around food containers to lower the ambient temperature for maximum freshness. This is especially improtant when items may be on display for extended time periods, where maintaining low temperatures is particuarly difficult.
Using gel packs for refrigerated transport
Gel packs are waterproof polyethylene bags filled with polymer-based cooling gel. They are used for the refrigerated or accustomed transport of goods. You can easily ensure that your products arrive at their destination nice and fresh. Because gel packs are widely applicable in logistics, our customers use our gel packs throughout Europe.
