About us

Since 1962, Bacofoil products have been trusted by millions of British households to help prepare, cook and store food quickly, easily and safely.

The UK’s favourite brand of aluminium foil and clingfilm

Over the years we have worked hard to develop innovative, high quality products to help make life easier for families. We’re delighted that so many consumers like the results, making us the UK’s number one brand of kitchen foil and clingfilm, year after year.

Owned by Cofresco Frischhalteprodukte GmbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary company of Melitta GmbH Group since October 2015, we are even more committed to developing and strengthening this position.

A family of products, trusted by all the family

From humble beginnings selling the Original Bacofoil that gives us our name, our wide range of paper, film and foil products now make loads of kitchen jobs easier for every generation.

For instance, did you know we make Refillable clingfilm and foil dispensers that fit in your kitchen drawer, cut cleanly for longer and are re-usable time after time? Or that we have a range of top quality baking papers, bags, trays and roasting bags that are brilliant for sealing in flavours, reducing mess and keeping food fresh? Or (our personal favourite) our Non-Stick Kitchen Foil which ensures nothing sticks – no sticking, no cleaning, no worries

Over the years, we’ve discovered people love to use our products in ways we’d never expect – take a look here to be surprised yourself – or why not add your own?

A responsible citizen, caring deeply about the environment

We take our responsibilities seriously, whether to our customers, our employees or the environment. That’s why we work hard to develop convenient, hassle-free products that are better for the environment as well.

It’s also why we are an active member of AluPro, the UK’s Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation, and the European Aluminium Foil Association. Click here to read about how we’re working together to get the UK (and beyond) recycling more.

We believe we need to do the right things internally too. We are committed to recycling as much of our waste as possible. Most of our plastics, metal, cardboard and paper is processed into bales to sell to re-processors. Plus, we use energy responsibly, choosing renewable ‘green energy’ for our gas supply, and installing a heating system in our office and warehouse that reduces our carbon emissions by around 30%.

Passionate about quality and innovation

Our motto, ‘Strength you can trust’ is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We believe in quality and innovation, because generations of customers trust us to.

Time and again, customers tell us they love our products because they do what they are meant to do, every time: our foil is strong, our clingfilm doesn’t tangle, our dispensers cut cleanly. All our products are convenient and easy to use.

We are passionate about continuing to be a pioneer in our field, developing brilliant products our customers trust. If there’s a Bacofoil product you’d love to see, why not tell us about it – get in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook, phone or email.
