Plastic-free food packaging move– AgriTradeNews

Posted on

Food packaging specialist Produce Packaging , a division of HL Hutchinson - has been appointed the exclusive Great Britain distributor of a home compostable and recyclable thermoformed moulded-fibre packaging product.

The Produce Packaging business offers its customers next day delivery of food packaging materials from a nationwide depot network using its own fleet of purpose-built vehicles. It has secured the contract to distribute Canadian manufacturer CKF’s wood pulp-based EarthcycleTM brand packaging material in this country.

EarthcycleTM meets the growing consumer demand for less plastic packaging – it is either home compostable or recyclable with the waste paper stream, and is plastic free. But it also meets the strength, speed and efficiency demands of the packing and retail sectors.

“Produce Packaging is thrilled to be working with CKF and more specifically the EarthcycleTM range of packaging," says Produce Packaging managing director Mark Tierney. "We see where the trends for reducing plastic in the packaging industry are going, and it is important for our company to be on the forefront of bringing innovation to our clients."
