Recyclable, mono-material packaging

LINPAC Packaging has developed a groundbreaking super lightweight mono-material tray for meat and poultry to assist retailers and packers across Europe comply with rigorous eco-taxes designed to cut the amount of packaging entering the waste stream. The removal of the PE base film reduces the tray weight by up to 3% and means the trays are 100% recyclable at the end of their service life. The weight can, in some cases, be reduced by up to a further 10% when manufactured in line with the lightweighting programme.
