IBC for UK market combines safety, cost-effectiveness and sustainability


The top selling Varibox IBC, from Berry Promens, part of Berry Global, will be demonstrated at ChemUK in a version specifically designed for the requirements of the UK and Irish markets.

Already well-established in mainland European markets, the Varibox provides an ideal solution for the safe and cost-effective handling of hazardous chemicals. At the same time, its advanced design can help to improve a company’s environmental profile and minimise the financial implications of the UK’s Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) regulations.

Roto moulded in polyethylene, the robust construction of the Varibox features an inner container enclosed within a strong outer cover, and incorporates a special discharge valve for easy dispensing of product with no need to remove a cap. The inner container is suitable for intensive usage for up to five years, making the Varibox fully reusable. This delivers an improved carbon footprint, as well as greatly reducing the amount of packaging waste and the resulting need to purchase PRNs, the average price of which for plastic waste has remained high in recent years.

To meet the particular needs of the UK and Irish markets, the standard 2-way secured entry pallet has been augmented with the availability of a 4-way secured entry version, allowing even greater flexibility in the movement of the container by a forklift or pallet jack without compromising on safety.

The strength and sturdiness of the Varibox ensures maximum protection so that product quality is maintained throughout the logistics chain. Integrated vents automatically open for safe dispensing and a pressure release system is available for products that cause a product build-up. Dip tubes with leak-free quick connectors are a further option for discharge from the top of the container.

The Varibox is available in a choice of colours and can incorporate company logos for effective branding. The easy-to-clean design prevents product contamination and large recessed label areas provide plenty of room for all required product information. A built-in RFID tag enables the Varibox to be tracked at every stage of its journey.
