Haulwen Nicholas


Hi, I’m Haulwen Nicholas, aka The Packaging Oracle and winner of Packaging News UK Packaging Awards Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award 2017.

In June 2017, I set up my own business to provide specialist support to SME’s and Entrepreneurs to help them to make the best packaging choices for their businesses.

I know you have so many questions racing through your mind when it comes to packaging, such as:

Should I be using plastic?

What can I use instead of plastic?

Are biodegradable’s as useful as they claim to be?

How do I find the right supplier for me?

Well, I can help.

I offer one to one packaging support for businesses like you as well as online packaging training so you can develop your own skills.

Contact me now for more information.
