No need for plastic when partying! Today, environmentally friendly solutions for food service packaging are in great demand, not least because of the EU regulation. One of the primary Italian retailers gets the party started by switching their party plates to our Accurate™ Freeze Grease – the sustainable alternative to plastic plates, styrofoam as well as polyethylene (PE) coatings. These sustainable plates are manufactured by Ecoplast.
Millions of plates without plastic coating
The respective Italian retailer was the first supermarket chain in Italy to introduce online shopping and own-manufactured organic products. For its highly demanded private label products, the retailer needs many millions of environmentally friendly packaging items every year and here also, breaks new ground: As part of its sustainability strategy, the family-owned company is working with packaging experts on solutions without plastics. For their party plates, the retailer now switched from cartonboard with PE coating to MM Karton´s Accurate™ Freeze Grease, which is completely recyclable and biodegradable.
Accurate™ Freeze Grease – stable and clean
Packaging solutions in the fast food and food services segments all have the same requirements – high stability and no discoloration. Sausages, fries, cakes and other foods can leave their natural fats on the packaging; so it is imperative to guarantee stability and prevent discoloration as well as annoying grease stains. Thanks to its combined moisture and grease barrier, Accurate™ Freeze Grease satisfies these requirements perfectly. Accurate™ Freeze Grease also shows flexibility and formability and can be deep drawn in the desired shape.
The move to Accurate™ Freeze Grease is an important step to fulfill the “Single Use Plastic Strategy” regulation, which aims to substitute single use plastic products, and is essential for the retailer’s sustainability strategy.
