At Hagens, we are all about minimising our footprint at every step of the journey. Ourselves, our staff and our customers are all passionate about leaving the environment in a better place than how we found it.
Our cardboard boxes are made from recycled cardboard, and our thermal liners are made from sheep's wool from New Zealand.
Woolcool is a fairly new technology which helps keep our food cool whilst in transport. This technology is also being used in the pharmaceutical industry for their temperature sensitive deliveries too.
If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for our meat too!
Sheep’s wool is a sustainable and highly effective natural insulation material which Woolcool have used to design and develop environmentally responsible packaging products and packaging. It's perfect for our delivery products we need to keep cooler for longer.
Woolcool insulated packaging products help companies and consumers reduce, re-use and recycle packaging as set out by the Government and following guidelines by The Australian Packaging Covenant.
The wool insulation is totally compostable and biodegradable, releasing valuable nitrates back into the soil. Wool is sourced and processed specifically for making Woolcool to ensure it doesn’t contain additives, such as borate or polyester, found in other types of wool insulation.
The MDPE film used to enclose the fleece and the LDPE envelopes used for Woolcool pouches are recyclable at soft plastics recycling drop off locations.
The main reasons we love Woolcool are because it's:
Sometimes, we may run out of wool cool due to availability, but please be ensured that your products are still safe! Our cold chain delivery process includes refrigerated vehicles to ensure the freshness of your order at every step of the process.
