Share this article


FACER present the UK’s first commercially to market plastic-free blister pack.

Mitsubishi Uni-Ball, the UK subsidiary of the global Japanese pen and writing instruments brand, made the switch to paper packaging early 2020, eliminating its single-use plastic blister packaging.

The company worked with UK packaging manufacturer FACER, to create its board-to-board plastic-free blister pack, proving that co-solving can spur plastic-free innovation.

Uni-Ball increased its market share in the UK to 38% following the launch, demonstrating not only a consumer demand for innovation, but a new era of design where plastic doesn’t have to be the go-to.

The new paper based pack remains a heat-seal solution that utilises the same machinery and benefits of conventional blister packing.
