KM Packaging Joins APCO

Global flexible packaging and lidding films supplier KM Packaging is proud to become a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO). 

We have joined more than 1500 other members that share a common agenda - a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our packaging.

The UK Government’s imminent Plastic Packaging Tax has created a frustrating Catch-22. The problem is that, for trays containing food intended to be heated with the lid kept on, it is not currently possible to produce a heat-sealable lidding film made with a recycled material approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).
