Produce Trays & Machinery

Produce trays – from board to box

Produce trays have been an essential part our business for many years, and as a manufacturer of both sheet board, die cut blanks and erected trays, we have complete control over our supply chain. We have a dedicated site in East Heckington, Lincolnshire where our highly-skilled team glue produce trays to form erect trays. These trays are manufactured 12 hours per day every single day, meaning hundreds of thousands of trays are created and supplied to local growers every year.


Local growers, local knowledge

One of the many advantages we have for supplying of produce trays is our location. We manufacturer in two counties with an ever expanding number of growers. Historically, the Humber region has a large horticultural industry which we are a major supplier to, and with the changing market we continue to supply year round for all seasonal crops. We also have customers all over the UK and are flexible to meet the needs of the produce industry.

“Supplying locally and nationally for more than 50 years”


Garthwest’s Produce Trays

We have extensive experience and can advise you on any aspect of produce trays in your supply chain.  We’ll assist you in creating a product that will protect and market your product.
