McLaren Packaging are an award-winning company who specialise in the design and manufacture of premium, paper-based packaging, primarily for the UK drinks industry.

Boxfish applied our expert knowledge and market-led approach to source the best energy and water rates for the client, ensuring complete transparency and extensive savings.


Due to the client’s large demand, and our comprehensive procurement process, competition between potential suppliers was fierce. Our team utilised this competition to drive unit rates lower whilst maximising key non-commercial aspects such as excellent customer service and value added support.

Our robust, extensive and totally independent process maximised savings for the client and avoided needless conflict of interest issues with preferred suppliers – our no commission or incentives policy ensures we have complete impartiality and continually act in the client’s best interests.

It’s the Boxfish way.


We were delighted to save McLaren Packaging a figure four times the amount of our annual fee – an exceptional return on investment.

With procurements now finalised and unit utility costs optimised, our team are now actively looking at utility related projects which will add even more value to the support.

Half hourly annual saving
Non-half hourly annual saving
Gas annual saving
Water annual saving

Boxfish have been looking after our utilities for over a year now and while we saw real benefits in terms of the work done to streamline the day-to-day management of the contracts, the cost savings they achieved recently via their comprehensive full market tender process were far more than we anticipated they’d achieve – the combined savings will more than cover their contract fee. We’ve now started working with them on some other energy and water projects and would recommend than to anyone looking for an ethical, impartial and expert utility consultant.
