    Reversing the tide on the plastic food packaging backlash

    With mounting public and media pressure on supermarkets to cut down on plastic packaging, it is vital to understand the importance of this valuable material for society and the environment.

  • For the second year running each of our manufacturing sites has achieved the gold standard for their health and safety records.
    Our most recent audit, which measures the number of accidents and days lost to accidents, shows all 15 sites scored more than 80 per cent - the benchmark for gold status. Last year was the first time since records began that all sites had achieved the golden grade.
    It marks another fantastic year for health and safety at LINPAC and the latest scores demonstrate that the changes implemented across the company during the past few years have really started to become embedded in the way we work and operate.
