Compostable packaging boost for food waste recycling aims

Compostable packaging is crucial if food waste recycling is to be increased, according to a new report based on responses from experts across Europe.

The report, published by environmental consultancy Ricardo Energy, is being circulated to encourage the Government to support compostable packaging to help meet its food waste recycling objectives and reduce plastic contamination in organic waste streams.

Catch-22 of the Plastic Packaging Tax

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).

Putting Sustainability First With Advanced Lidding Solutions

Harnessing our leading-edge Peel range of advanced lidding film solutions, we can help fresh fruit producers and food manufacturers to develop new, resource efficient, reduced-plastic packaging.

Lifting the Lid on Plastic: Food for thought on tackling food waste

Try to imagine 200 million elephants. Or 900 million compact cars. That is the equivalent weight of food lost or wasted each year. 

The startling 1.3 billion tonnes of loss or waste is roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
