Recycling success for Linpac
Linpac Packaging’s Rfresh PET range for meat and protein products has been recognised in the first EPRO awards to promote recycled products in Europe.
EPRO – the European association of plastics recycling and recovery organisations – chose the UK firm as one of the best products containing recycled plastics; its trays for meat use the minimum amount of polymer while maintaining strength.
Alan Davey, director of innovation for LINPAC Packaging, said: “Not only are we the only winner from the packaging sector, but we are also the only winner based in Britain.”
He added: “We pride ourselves in the level of design, not only of the trays, but in the processes that ensure only the best recycled material is used to make our products. This enables us to offer our customers the range and security of supply required by leading firms.”
Winners were selected from entries received from the 13 European member countries. All had to contain at least 50% recycled plastics, be made out of recycled, used plastics packaging and be made in Europe.
