Sustainable packaging solutions for takeaway food

How can you combine the need for takeaway food with the demand for sustainable packaging?

We know that consumers want both. We also know that many consumers mistakenly believe that packaging made from plastics should be avoided.

However, plastic is an ideal material for food packaging. Plastics protect the food on its journey from production to the retail store and to the kitchen table. Plastics prolong the shelf life of food, reducing food waste. Finally – and perhaps most importantly – plastics are recyclable.

When is a packaging solution sustainable?

At Plus Pack, sustainability is inherently linked to circularity, meaning materials are kept in the loop. Packaging should be sorted and recycled and not disposed after use. Therefore, we design plastic packaging solutions that recycle easily by focusing on three simple principles:

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

Our product portfolio complies with all regulations related to packaging, including the European Union’s single-use plastics directive which took effect July 2021.

What is sustainable packaging? And how do you choose the right, sustainable solution for your food and ready meals?

Evidently sustainability has come to stay. The increasing demand for sustainable solutions from consumers and governments encourages action. However, countless misleading claims have emerged in the past years about sustainable packaging, creating misconceptions about materials.

Therefore, we would like to share some facts with you. We have developed a Packaging School concept for that very reason. In our Packaging School, you will be equipped to make the right, sustainable choice:

  • You will become familiar with sustainability terminology and the principles behind a circular economy
  • We will explain all about relevant legislation within packaging and help you understand your local requirements
  • You will be introduced to facts about plastics and aluminium as well as other packaging materials

The session will be tailored specifically to your needs. We make individual agreements for when and where to meet. We suggest you come to our headquarter in Odense, Denmark, to visit our learning lab and production site. This gives you the optimal session, but we can also do an online session if you prefer so.
