Alongside her award winning authentic Indian cookery school rayeesasindiankitchen.com, spicedbyrayeesa.co.uk is a growing brand selling successfully across many independent retailers. With such a wonderful product and a stunning design, B&G’s insulated grab bag compliments with its unique turn over top Velcro like closure and protects against the bacteria that can cause food poisoning by using our Biomaster Antibacterial inner film.
Rayeessa said “We were looking for an innovative way of marketing our fabulous sauces, and came across a great design on the web, however this was going to be out of our budget and had a very long lead time. Then we came across B and G at an event. They were very friendly and helpful and asked if they could quote us. I was not sure if they would be able to meet our requirements, both in design and price, however, they succeeded in both. They are very professional, and innovative in their approach which we loved, and kept us updated on the order progress every step of the way. In fact, they exceeded our expectation, and we are so thrilled with our new grab cooler bags, they certainly stand out and they get our brand message across brilliantly. We are now working with them for other innovative packaging ideas for the future.”

“B&G recently manufactured some branded bags for us to use at Allergy and Free From Shows across the UK. From start to finish the standard of customer service was incredible. Nikki our dedicated contact was fantastic and guided us through the entire process mocking up multiple options for us. The bags were produced and delivered to a very tight deadline and were of the highest quality. This was our first time using branded cool bags but they look great and we will definitely continue to use them going forward. We look forward to working with B&G again in the future and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for cool bag solutions.” Rachel from Genius
Creators of fine Yorkshire cheeses Shepards Purse are experts when it comes to handcrafting cheese. Cheese is an art as they say on their website. Cheese is a living thing just like Wine or Yeast and each batch develops slightly differently. Cheese making is a ‘Sensual Art’ so they’re not too keen on using machines, the guys at Shepards Purse prefer the trusted handcrafted techniques developed through the generations.
“Using chilled bags at shows has been great for our product, we love them. But more importantly, our customers have told us they really love them. The service from B&G Products has also been superb – swift and great communication.”

“Started using the cool bags two years ago to give customers assurance when traveling distance or on hot summer days that their sausages would keep cool until they got home, as well as being able to reuse the cool bags they also look great and are a fantastic advert. B&G are great people to work with to ensure you get the artwork right and the cool bags looking the best. Would not go anywhere else for our cool bags.” David (Perfick Pork).
National Trust property Charlecote Park, Midlands Region, required an insulated freezer bag so that its discerning visitors/ customers could take home the meat purchased in the best possible condition.
Such is the quality of the exclusive, to Charlecote Park, meat it was important that the freshly frozen meat could be kept in its prime state until it was safely back home for customers to fully enjoy.
“The Charlecote branding gives our produce a sense of ownership when customers make their purchase from our on-property shops. The insulated freezer bags provided the correct means to transport their purchase home and remain frozen for a longer period of time. The retail management at Charlecote Park were very happy with the professional communication and helpful information provided at the start of the transaction with B&G. B&G kept to timings and the outline brief, we are very happy with the end result and would happily recommend them forward.”

Inverawe Smokehouses is one of the few remaining smokeries to follow the age old way of smoking fish. They are passionate about flavour and believe that only slow smoking over oak logs gives that unique depth of smokiness, texture and lingering aftertaste.
“As a stand holder at many fine food fayres and county shows over the past 30 years it was imperative that we provided some way for our customers to take their goods home safely. We have had a relationship with B&G bags for many many years and have always found their products to be of the highest quality, delivered timely and without fuss.
Their chill bags are an excellent branding vehicle and we have enjoyed seeing our bags re-appear in the most amazing places over the years.”

Northern Dough Co.
Northern Dough Co. everyone deserves great Pizza.
That’s why Chris took a dough recipe handed down from his family of bakers in Lancashire, and made a cracking pizza every time friends came over. Everyone loved it, so after lots of clean plates and happy guests, Amy and Chris decided to share it with as many people as they could.
Through the Northern Dough Co. they’ve created a range of delicious pizza dough containing only natural ingredients, freshly frozen so that you can enjoy them in your own home, just as Amy and Chris do.
“The Bags were first used at the ‘BBC Good Food’ show, and have since been used at all our events. Cool bags provided an oppotunity to reassure our customers that their purchase would stay frozen for longer, but also provide us with a marketing opportunity through branding the bag themselves. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the quality of the service – in over 2000 units I haven’t had a single misprinted bag, and would definitely use B G time and again. B&G’s overall service was great!”
Harbour Salmon Co.
Harbour Salmon Co. was launched in 2011 and is currently the fastest growing brand in the salmon category.

We choose to offer a free branded cool bag with every purchase to ensure our products were nicely chilled untill the consumer arrived home. We also hoped that seeing consumers carrying our beautifully branded bags around the Show would encourage a word of mouth Buzz about our stand- And it certainly did!
“I discovered B&G Products through a quick google search, to identify suppliers of branded cool bags. The clearly laid out information on their website and in particular the ability to very quickly cost out the different options was extremely helpful. The key for me,however,has been the excellent service I received throughout, from my first call to understand the elements I needed to provide through to the detailed information provided regarding the timing and pallet configuration of my delivery.Last,But by no means least, the cool bags themselves are beautiful!”
