Established in 1934, Marchant supplies 'bespoke' and branded polythene and compostable (biodegradable) bags, refuse sacks and specialist packaging materials to leading retailers, grocery wholesalers, manufacturing companies, packaging suppliers and local authorities throughout the UK.
We manufacture over six million bags a week, 52 weeks of the year – all to ISO 9001:2008 specifications. We are the country's largest producer of compostable bags.
An independent family-run business, we ally advanced manufacturing capabilities with unparalleled ethical and professional standards to deliver the finest British made polythene film products – on time, every time.
Working from our purpose built manufacturing facility in Haverhill, Suffolk, our 140-strong team utilises 16 polythene film extruders and converters to provide our customers with the fastest production turnaround times, at highly competitive prices.
Given all this, it should come as no surprise that now, and in the past 75 years, household name companies such as Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Iceland and Homebase depend on us – for own-brand refuse sacks, bin liners, garden sacks, food and freezer bags... and a whole lot more.
