As mentioned in our Christmas 2017 blog, street-food is enjoying its time in the limelight thanks to growing demand from the consumer for innovative, globally-influenced lunch and snack options. When the consumer thinks of artisan street-food however, it’s unlikely that they associate classic white or champagne coloured EPS trays with being an eco-friendly packaging alternative for their favourite street-foods.

Plastics Recyclers Europe has warned that that PET trays must be recycled separately. It says “these valuable products need to be sorted separately from the PET bottle streams and recycled separately in order to ensure resource efficiency”. Casper van den Dungen, Plastics Recyclers Europe PET chairman, said: “Trays and bottles are two different types of products which cannot be recycled in the same recycling line. Their designs and chemical compositions are not the same and can create quality problems for existing PET recyclers. The collection schemes and sorting centres cannot push this issue down the value chain.”

In response to growing demand for meat products in Russia we have introduced our new range of foam trays to the market which help to extend the shelf life of protein products. Meat consumption in Russia has increased by one per cent year on year and is forecast to continue to grow at this rate until 2016. This increase in demand is reflected by figures showing that the country’s chilled and fresh meat industry is currently worth €6.4bn, up from €6.2bn two years ago and predicted to grow to more than €6.5bn by 2015.
