As brand owners push forward in sustainability, there looks to be no end in sight for demand of sustainable packaging ideas and recycled materials.
Brand owners are continuing to promote the importance of post consumer recyclates in their product portfolio.
Mars, Inc. is working toward 100 percent packaging recyclability by 2025.
Nestlé, the world’s biggest food company announced in January 2020 that it will spend more than than 1.5 billion Swiss francs to buy 2 million metric tons of recycled plastic between now and 2025.
Despite high demand for recycled content, there is a disconnect between many recyclers and product manufacturers that results in suboptimal design for recyclability and insufficient supply of post-consumer materials for recycling
Successful recycling firms need to navigate this area skilfully and understand the applicable regulations that govern the use of recycled materials in food packaging applications.
