A packaging expert with a lifelong love of biscuit tins has set up in business after being made redundant last year.

Sarah Greenwood developed pacakaging for Asda and Fox’s Biscuits before losing her job.

She launched on her own six months ago, with help from the SmartStart programme managed by the Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre, and has won contracts from a high street supermarket and a small cosmetics company.

But she confesses her love of packaging goes back to when she was a teenager.

She said: “My fascination started with my dad’s old fashioned Oxo tin. I loved the branding. And pretty soon I had a collection of tins of all sizes.”
