Envision Plastics gets FDA’s Nod to Use Recycled HDPE in Food Contact Packaging

Posted on : 10 Feb, 2020

 
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Letter of Non-Objection (NOL) to Envision Plastics allowing the company to provide OceanBound Plastic to customers. Envision Plastics’ OceanBound Plastic is a post-consumer resin collected from at-risk regions around the globe, and specifically manufactured for direct food contact.
 
The NOL specifies that Envision’s OceanBound Plastic can be used for all food types under Conditions of Use C-H – when used at levels up to 100% in recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) packaging.
 
At a time when more and more brands are opting for sustainable packaging solutions, this move will be key to providing them with sustainable solutions for food and beverage packaging.
 
Envision’s OceanBound Plastic aims to help brands find a solution to meet their 2025 sustainable packaging goals.
 
OceanBound Plastic was launched in 2017 when Envision collaborated with local communities in ‘at-risk areas’ around the world to recover the plastic before it enters the ocean and produce a resin that can be is easily integrated into existing manufacturing processes.
 
Tamsin Ettefagh Vice President Sales, Envision Plastics shares more about the company’s initiatives in Food grade for rHDPE at CMT’s Recycled Packaging for Food Contact in Los Angeles, USA.
