Faerch Plast on green target

Food packaging manufacturer Faerch Plast has said it has reduced the weight of its CPET (crystalline polyethylene) containers by an average of 11% since 2008. According to the company, this puts it on target to meet its environmental objective of "achieving a general weight reduction of produced items of 30%" by 2013.

Joe Iannidinardo, MD of Faerch Plast's UK division, said: "Clever design, together with improved production processes, has helped us reduce the weight of our packaging without compromising performance, quality or food safety. Using less material during the manufacturing process has enabled us to reduce our carbon footprint further and produce less waste."
