​​​FodaBox packaging guidelines



We provide to our clients a wide range of packaging materials such as boxes, Flexi hex (large and medium), Hive wrap and void fill materials (shred carton). You can refer to our most updated price list here: Packaging Price List.


Fragile products: 

  • These include any liquid, semi-liquid or glass products 

  • There should be no more than 15kg per parcel

  • We always use protective packaging with glass products, UNLESS the product is extremely well packaged (double walled box, dividers).

Reduce movement 

We must ensure boxes are cut down to  size and adequately filled with void to reduce movement. When shaken, the consignment  shouldn’t rattle.
