1 week until Peak Packaging Monday

By Jake Kirk • Monday 13th November 2017

In 2014 Kite Packaging launched an important date in the calendar - ‘Peak Packaging Monday’. We identified this as being the Monday that falls before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. ‘Peak Packaging Monday’ is the busiest day of the year for businesses to purchase packaging in preparation for two of the busiest consumer shopping days of the year.

Peak Packaging Monday falls on 20th November this year; it is a key date for UK businesses that require packaging materials and sees the largest volume of orders being placed with UK packaging distributors as companies stock up on packaging ready to supply their own goods on Cyber Monday and Black Friday.

Kite Packaging is one of the UK’s leading packaging distributors.
