When Quality Matters...
Packaging decisions today are dominated by how they will impact on the environment. And suppliers, in their efforts to be the cheapest, are making products lighter and less sturdy. Sovereign, with 25 years experience selling into the Food and Coffee To Go sector, can carry out a free in-depth no obligation review of what you currently use, help improve the quality and provenance of your packaging, its environmental credentials and ensure you are getting the best value for your budget.

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.
