Are you panic packing? – Scayl

Are you panic packing?

During the Covid-19 crisis and worldwide lockdown, many businesses are having to think on their feet and offer direct-to-consumer products. Local shops, bakeries and independent retailers are now offering home delivery in a move to keep their businesses afloat. And, for the ones who are already in the online space, the challenge they are facing is huge spikes in demand. 

Over the last few weeks, we have been contacted by different businesses, particularly in the food industry, that are struggling to keep up with demand. 

Usually, if demand spikes in a hand-packing operation, the solution is to put more hands on the job. But, with people self-isolating, this may not be an option, especially if workers need to operate in close proximity to each other.

Our packing machines are solving a lot of problems during the lockdown, thanks to their speed, accuracy, versatility and portability. One coffee business owner has even started packing his coffee roasts at home, whilst last week we sold four machines to high-street bakers Haighs, who diversified into offering baking kits on social media. Without our machines, the bakery was having to turn away business - read about how we help Haighs Bakery here.

If you are finding it difficult to keep up with demand, then get in touch with our team on or by calling 01748 349 112. We would love to talk to you about how we can help!
