Frequently Asked Questions…

Are Victoria Packaging’s containers of the highest quality?

We believe they are. They are produced by some of Europe’s best plastic bucket and plastic pot manufacturers.

Our buckets and pots undergo rigorous tests and quality controls to ensure every item is safe.

We can provide certification so you know that the product is compliant.

Our plastic containers are food grade. They are suitable for aqueous, acidic and alcoholic foods, foods which contain free fats at the
surface and milk products

Our UN approved buckets guarantee high-quality packaging that remains intact and fully sealed, even under demanding conditions.

The material chosen to produce our containers has a very good heat resistance and the packaging is suitable for hot filling.

We can offer suitable containers for freezing, please contact us to enquire about our special resin for low temperatures.

They are stackable and nestable too, so when not in use containers of the same lid diameter neatly stack inside each other and do not take up to much room.

How do I place an order?

You can place an order by phoning 0121 559 0808 or by emailing sales@victoriapackaging.co.uk between 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday.

Do you have a minimum order quantity?

We will sell any quantity, however, we would much rather sell full box quantities or full pallets as we optimise the shipments. The pots and buckets are nested evenly in the box to prevent damage during shipping.

The exception is for colour, printed or IML buckets which do have a minimum order quantity.

Do you sell lids individually?

Yes, we are happy to sell just lids, sometimes you don’t need to replace the whole bucket, you just need a new lid or a different colour!

What are your return conditions?

Damages or shortfalls must be notified within 48 hours. For all other returns, the goods must be in their original packaging, in an un-opened condition and will be subject to a re-stocking fee of 10% plus the delivery charge.

Can you supply me with the appropriate certification for my packaging?

Yes, we can provide you with the certificate issued to the manufacturer.
