Sustainable Packaging Solutions

We are able to offer a range of different materials to meet increased demand for environmentally-responsive products. These include:

  • PCR (Post Consumer Regrind)
  • PLA (Polylactic Acid)
  • Direct Printing

The company is committed to minimising energy use throughout all its activities, including investing in low-energy technology for manufacturing systems and working in partnership with customers delivering first-class products which are kinder to the planet.


PCR (Post Consumer Regrind)

  • PCR is plastic products that have been recycled, which means they have been reprocessed to be re-used in new manufacturing
  • PCR conserves energy and non-renewable resources as recycling replaces the need for primary extraction and the manufacture of new plastics
  • We offer a range of PCR material for use in the production of plastic bottles and jars at levels of between 25% – 100% in PET and up to 50% in HDPE*
  • PCR tubes are available for use with PE starting at 25% PCR material

*Subject to material availability

PLA (Polylactic Acid)

  • PLA is a compostable polymer derived from renewable sources such as corn starch
  • we have trialled PLA in various manufacturing processes and the results to date have been promising although there are some limitations on what can be produced
  • We would be happy to develop this further in partnership with a customer – please contact our Sales Team to discuss

Direct Printing

Printing adds very little gram weight to compatible products. In addition, label materials are sometimes inconsistent with the bottle which can hinder recycling.
