Bill’s is a British café chain founded by Bill Collison when he opened a small greengrocery in Lewes, East Sussex. Following a flood in 2000, Bill reopened his greengrocery to include a café.
Now Bill’s has expanded to 21 restaurants in London and 79 around the UK with a workforce over four thousand strong. Wilkinson Containers has been supplying Bill’s with bespoke packaging for its range of oaties biscuits and breakfast tea since 2014.
For Christmas 2017, Bill Collison presented P. Wilkinson Containers with a new challenge – could it provide unique packaging for a staff Christmas gift to give it that special something.
The team at P. Wilkinson Containers created two prototype promotional packs to house the one-of-a-kind Christmas hamper which included hot sauce, biscuits, orange marmalade, lemon curd and a limited edition Bill’s Christmas bauble.
In the end, Wilkinson’s created a bespoke height metal can, measuring 205mm tall with a diameter 153mm wide which was produced at its London factory, William Say. The slip lid tins were embossed with the iconic Bill’s logo using tooling the factory had created for the restaurant’s range of teas and biscuits.
Once artwork was supplied by Bill’s, P. Wilkinson Containers also sourced decorative inner-stuffing and printed labels with a satin touch finish. Each tin was hand labelled and packed by the Wilkinson’s team ready to be received by Bill’s staff in time for Christmas.
“We wanted to thank our staff for all their hard work at Bill’s across the last twelve months with a special Christmas gift. I knew that I could rely on P. Wilkinson Containers to develop a promotional packaging that would make sure each gift had a special edge,” says Ben Merchant – Buyer.
