Sustainable packaging for hotels, restaurants, cafés, and takeaway

How can you combine the need for single-use packaging with the growing demand for sustainable food packaging?

We know that our customers want both. We do also know that many mistakenly believe that they should avoid plastic packaging altogether.

Meanwhile, plastics are an ideal material for food packaging. Plastics protect the food from production to cold counter and dining table. Plastics are 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 plastics strategy which requires that all packaging must be recyclable or reusable by 2030.

What is sustainable packaging? And how do you choose the right, sustainable packaging solution for your takeaway?

Sustainability has moved further up the global agenda in numerous fields, and the food industry is no exception. Unfortunately, we see and hear many, unsubstantiated and misleading claims about packaging materials.

Therefore, we would like to share our knowledge with you. We seek to do that in our Packaging School where you will be equipped to make the right, sustainable and circular choices:

  • You will be introduced to facts about materials and sustainability
  • You will become familiar with terminology within sustainability and circular economy
  • The session will be tailored specifically to your needs in the horeca sector

We make individual agreements with regards to the time and place for meeting. We prefer that you come to Odense to visit our Learning Lab and our production site. But we can also offer you an online session if you prefer so.
