The original, patented, complete in-cage solution

As a 3-in-1 solution to bedding, nesting and enrichment, the NestPak has revolutionised cage changing procedures while simultaneously improving animal welfare.

In 1998, Datesand joined forces with Pete Willan and the University of Leicester to develop this ground-breaking new product. An international patent was granted and the expertise, commitment and investment that was poured into the development of this product was protected.

The original NestPaks are ONLY produced in Datesand’s ISO accredited facilities to exacting standards or in our audited licensed manufacturers facilities. Since 1998, millions of NestPaks have been sold worldwide, directly through Datesand and our global network of approved distributors and licensed manufacturers.

We can assure that each product is manufactured to specific customer specification to the absolute highest quality.
