GRAPHIC Packaging International has revealed it will supply 500,000 sustainable food buckets to KFC Australia for Australian cricket’s Big Bash League 2018, which starts later this month.
The non-plastic recyclable bucket was said to have been selected by league sponsor KFC Australia due to its eco-credentials. Manufacturing of the product is exclusive to Graphic Packaging’s site in Winsford, UK.
Mike Turner, managing director at Graphic Packaging said, “We’ve had a successful working relationship with KFC UK and Ireland for some time now. And whilst the company has its own bucket supplier in Australia, its requirement for a renewable solution meant that Graphic Packaging International was, without question, the supplier of choice.”
The bucket features a grease-resistant lining which is described as preventing the build-up of excess oil. A glossy finish has been achieved with clay coating.
Mike Turner added, “KFC Australia’s adoption of the GPI Foodservice bucket is a step in the right direction toward meeting the country’s sustainability targets. We’re delighted to be supporting them in this venture.”
