WE ARE OPEN
We have been monitoring the situation around the Coronavirus closely over recent days. The government advice is currently that takeaway and delivery facilities should remain open and operational.
However we also appreciate that each individual company has to make the appropriate decision regarding their own operation at this critical time. As a result we have seen a significant drop in demand. We have said previously that our priority has always been the safety and well-being of our staff. Taking into consideration the latest government advice and current business realities we have taken the decision to reduce our service to three days.
From week commencing 30 March we will open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday only until further notice. Our next-day delivery days will be still available on those days and we will continue our cut-off order time of 3pm for a next day delivery. If you order on a Wednesday or Friday the delivery time will be 48-hours. The phones and email will continue to be answered 5 days a week from 9am to 5pm.
We will continue to monitor the situation as things develop. If you have any concerns about the new arrangement please contact us on 020 3817 4150 or email@example.com and we will be happy to accommodate where we can. We appreciate your support at this time. We hope you, your families and your colleagues stay safe and healthy.

A trusted partner & our clients love us
Sovereign is a industry leading food packaging supplier of quality disposable products to the upmarket coffee and food to go sector - for decades Sovereign has been at the forefront of the cafe culture boom in the UK and across Europe. Dependable … and committed to our customers
“We were really happy to find Sovereign in the run up to opening Urban Tea Rooms, as they were able to offer us the kind of smaller scale service that you need when first building a start-up. Instead of having to pay for and store 50,000 personalised coffee cups, we were able to order just a few thousand - a great help with cash flow in those early days.”
Sophie HudsonDirector at Urban Tea Rooms
“With so many other costs when setting up its very important to keep everything down but gain quality also. This was achieved immediately with Sovereign & before I knew it a perfect sample arrived for me to see.”
Jason OslarDirector, Oslar Coffee
Frequently Asked Questions
How do cup carriers work?
A cup carrier can hold and carry multiple cups as the same time. Check out our Signature cup carriers and see the indents in the cardboard to hold the cups so they do not fall. They are suitable for hot and cold drink cups from 8oz to 24oz sizes.
Why are pizza boxes square?
A square box can be formed from a single sheet of cardboard, and can be stored flat, and easily assembled in store. All these reasons make the square pizza box preferable over a form fitting circular one.
Do you supply UK caterers?
Many caterers all over the UK use Sovereign for packaging solutions & their package design.
What is fast food packaging?
Packaging found in restaurants for take-out are usually disposable for customer convenience. Such disposable packaging is also commonly used for picnics & parties. Recently there is a push for more sustainable packaging, and Sovereign has a wide range of biodegradable products.
Can paper coffee cups be recycled?
Depending on how coffee cups are made they are easier or harder to recycle. See our Goodlife Range for biodegradable cups.
Where can I get environmentally friendly packaging and supplies?
Compostable packaging made from Bagasse (sugar cane waste) decomposes in land fill very quickly and can be home composted. We can also supply compostable cups and lids but these need to be sent to an industrial composting plant. We have bagasse lids that fit 12/16oz hot cups which are a real environmentally friendly solution, and we also now have cups that can be recycled in the standard paper recycling stream and don’t need to be collected in and sent to specialist plants for processing. See our Goodlife Range for information on Bagasse and other products in this range.
What makes a good smoothie cup?
Smoothies are thicker than your usual drink so normal water bottles and straws will be challenged. A good smoothie cup will make it easy to drink and transport your smoothie. See our plastic cup range for some great smoothie cups.
