Package your food product with recycled PET (rPET)

  • Berry Superfos

You can now opt for food packaging solutions from Berry Superfos made with rPET (recycled PET polymer) and in this way save virgin materials.

Berry Superfos is pleased to offer you a range of thermoformed and injection stretch blow moulded food packaging solutions made with rPET, recycled PET (also known as recycled polyester).

The clear benefit of PET as a material is that it is recyclable. If you go one step further than just virgin PET and choose a packaging solution from Berry Superfos made with rPET, you will be able to cut down on the use of virgin materials.

Roland Lingman, Director Sales and Marketing, Berry Superfos Nordic, explains:

“In Europe, PET is one of the most commonly used types of plastic packaging material and, fortunately, also widely recycled. Its stiffness and high transparency are valuable assets. Plus, it has good barrier protection properties. All these qualities remain intact in our rPET packaging solutions, and therefore they are suitable for many different types of food products.”

Part of a bigger sustainability strategy

Increasing the use of rPET is part of the sustainability strategy of Berry Superfos. Read more about Berry Global’s efforts to create a positive environmental impact through streamlined operations, continuously engaged partners, and optimized products here.

A wide range of rPET option

Currently, you have the option to use rPET for a number of thermoformed pots and containers in the following Berry Superfos ranges CombiPac, CombiRound, SuperLight, Spoon-in-lid and DeliPac as well as in our injection stretch blow moulded PET range.

Due to different needs for filling temperature or other product requirements, sometimes rPet (or PET) is not the right choice; other types of polymers may be better for certain products. Simply contact Berry Superfos to establish whether an rPET solution is suitable for your food product and we will happily be of assistance.

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.
