The demands on packaging are ever increasing. From sustainable sourcing and reducing plastic, to packs that work at all stages of the supply chain, from freezing through to the consumer reheating at home. The market demands sustainable all-purpose packaging. The award-winning Stagione® from Colpac has attributes to answer many of these requirements and more.
At Colpac we start product development considering sustainability, from raw materials source to end of life recycling. Stagione®, like many of Colpac’s products, is manufactured from FSC® certified paperboard.
Exporting sustainable packaging ranges like Stagione® is complex, as we need to consider a wide range of different regulations and facilities for packaging recycling. In the UK we work with OPRL guidelines for domestic ranges. Stagione® has high barrier properties achieved through a PP coating, and part of its wide appeal, is that the percentage of plastic in each base product is just above 5%, making it recyclable under even to the most stringent of standards. The lids are also recyclable, and the rPET lid contains almost 100% recycled materials.
