Our Standards So Far  . . .





BS7611 was introduced in 1992 to ensure that boxes are manufactured to withstand the loads, stresses and forces they are subjected to when full.

Potato Boxes are classified into 3 stacking standards when in use ;


4 High  Not suitable for frequent use in   

              handling operations that involve  

              tipping full boxes unless clamped 

              to stop racking


6 High   Not suitable for frequent use in 

               handling operations that involve 

               tipping full boxes unless clamped

               to minimise racking


8 High   Suitable for constant use in

               most handling operations


Here at our works, we have our own test equipment to verify box designs comply to BS7611.

All boxes are marked with a branded logo stating

the maximum height that particular box is suitable for.



FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.


The FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from well-managed forests.


Here at Pearson Packages we have chosen

to be an active part of using timber from selected managed forests, and involves a traceability

system from goods in through to goods out.

Every step of our process identifies the source

of timber that is used on our FSC products.


We have been certified for full FSC status.

Our Chain of Custody Code is TT-COC-004067,

and this certificate expires in March 2019.

In order to protect worldwide stocks of trees and forests, the International Plant Protection Committee (IPPC) has taken regulatory action to control the global movement of wooden packaging in the form of ISPM15. The Forestry Commission is the UK's representative on the IPPC.

The ISPM15  Regulations is regulatory action to help prevent the spread of destructive pests such as the Asian Longhorn Beetle and the Pine Wood Nematode.

Our responsibility here at Pearson Packages is to ensure that all timber used for export, is traceable and certified to be free of imported pests.

We are audited by the UK Forestry Commision twice per year and certified upon approval.

Our certificate is FC781 and is due for review in Nov 2018.
