Sustainable food packaging for the food service industry

How does the growing interest in sustainable solutions impact the food service industry – and your packaging choices?

We know that consumers and decision makers are worried about the footprint single-use plastics leave. We also know that many falsely believe that plastic packaging should then be avoided altogether.

Meanwhile, plastics are an ideal material for food packaging. Plastics protect food from production to cold counter and dining table. Plastics recyclable. And perhaps most importantly: plastics reduce food waste.

When is plastic packaging considered sustainable?

At Plus Pack, sustainability is inherently linked to a circular economy in which materials are kept in the loop. Packaging should be sorted and recycled instead of being disposed of after use. Therefore, we design and develop plastic packaging solutions based on three simple principles:

  • Mono-materials
  • Clear materials
  • Materials with recycled content

Our complete product portfolio complies with regulations related to packaging, including the European Union’s single-use plastics ban.
