Types of shopping basket

Shopping baskets are something that most people take for granted. They are a part of everyday life that most of the time would only have any attention if there was something wrong with them. However, there is a great deal of engineering that goes into shopping baskets, and there are many different kinds.

Below is a short list of some different kinds of shopping baskets that we supply at Joalpe, and the features that make them stand out from one another.


With a 68 litre capacity and four multidirectional wheels, the basket has a full 360o range of motion. The Genplus is made from 100% recyclable material and features 55mm wheels that can withstand a maximum weight of 40kg. Although it has an obscure shape, the basket can be easily stacked on top of one another. It is also easy to use, ergonomically designed, washable and recyclable.


This premium shopping basket is manufactured in the EU at our own factory and is used by several major retailers in the UK. The basket has a 43 litre capacity and is very robust, providing shoppers with a sturdy and secure place to store their goods whilst they shop.

The genslide basket is made from 100% recycled materials and can hold a maximum of 25kg. It has 50mm wide wheels which provide sturdy and smooth rolling. Similar to the Genplus, the basket is ergonomically shaped and can be stacked easily.


This premium basket is supplied to a number of major retailers in the UK and comes in a standard (22L) and large (28L) option. The basket is available in a wide range of colours and sizes and is incredibly durable like all Joalpe basket products, and can also be easily stacked.


With its 38L capacity, the easyshopper is ideal for retailers with a large volume of purchases in mind. The easyshopper is available in a range of colours and comes with wheels and a retractable handle. This basket can be easily stacked and features an easy to use ergonomic design.
