Celebration to show off new rPET foodservice packs

CELEBRATION Packaging is set to launch a new range of recyclable packaging products made from recycled PET plastic.

The firm will be unveiling the products at the lunch! event at ExCel in London from September 23-24.

“It’s no coincidence that 20 to 26 September is also National Recycle Week and Celebration Packaging is proud to be launching these new recyclable foodservice packaging products which are currently made from up to 80% recycled post-consumer PET waste (rPET),” said MD Nick Burton. “By the end of this year, the new range will be manufactured using 100% rPET.

“These new rPET products, which will soon be made from 100% post-consumer waste, represent an important step towards creating a closed loop recycling system. In addition, products made from rPET use considerably less energy, and consequently have a much lower carbon footprint, compared to products made from virgin plastics.

“As a leading supplier within the foodservice sector, we understand the increasing pressures our customers face in endeavouring to operate in an environmentally friendly fashion.”

Celebration Packaging explained that the new rPET range is available in ‘multiple’ sizes and includes the Oval, Rectangular and Round Families – described as ‘high-clarity clear bowls’ with hinged lids which can be used for fresh salads and vegetables.

The Premium Bowl and Diamond Bowl ranges are available in transparent or black, with matching transparent lids, while Catering Trays are available in a variety of colours, each with transparent covers.
