As part of its Sustainable Future programme, Bunzl Catering Supplies is working with leading manufacturers to bring sustainable food packaging solutions to market. Customers eating on the go are increasingly looking for appealing and practical food packaging options that have a reduced impact on the environment. To accelerate the industry’s transition towards circularity, Bunzl Catering Supplies’ partner supplier, Faerch, has launched Evolve by Faerch Plaza bowls, an off the shelf range of recycled PET salad containers and lids made from recycled materials, that can be fully recycled into new food packaging after use.
Evolve by Faerch has a unique look, with the recycled PET containing different palettes of colours, allowing consumers to immediately recognise the circular nature of the packaging, ensuring they make the right sustainable packaging choices.
David Lucas, Sales Director of Foodservice, UK and Ireland at Faerch UK Ltd says: “Evolve by Faerch is designed to close the loop on food packaging and therefore plays a key role in the industry’s transition towards a true circular economy. The Evolve by Faerch Plaza bowls are made from recycled household post-consumer material which, after use, can be recycled into new mono-material food packaging without any loss of quality.”
The Plaza range provides a stylish and practical serving solution for salads and pastas. The bowls and lids are designed to enhance on-shelf presentation and appeal and are available in sizes: 375cc, 500cc and 750cc, which can be stacked for space-efficient storage.
Converting from clear to circularity
Today, most of the recycled PET on the market is derived from transparent bottles. However, with more and more companies sourcing recycled PET, the demand for recycled bottle content has increased significantly. As the world’s first integrated recycler of PET food packaging, Faerch is offering tray to tray recycling on an industrial scale. The company’s recycling facility in the Netherlands is capable of taking in used post-consumer trays from collectors, sorters and recycling them back into food grade mono-material.
