Holfeld, which specialises in multi application rPETeCO material, has won a Gold Star Award in the Greenstar Category at the Starpack Awards, the annual awards ceremony to recognise innovation in packaging design and technology.
It’s the highest accolade at one of the most prestigious events in the UK packaging awards calendar.
Commenting, the judges said that while the category was 'difficult to judge' this year, they felt 'the use of post recycled content in PET trays AND forming technology has taken the R-PET Market on, and the potential for roll out with significant tonnage, sizing and carbon savings tipped the balance'.
Holfeld uses 20% less waste plastic bottles in blending its rPETeCO material – one of the lowest multi-application rPET materials for the red meat, poultry, fish, soft fruit, fresh produce and non-food sectors available today. The material is perfect for the cosmetics industry where added value and product differentiation is required. Key attributes are its on-shelf appearance, it has a non-plastic look, is highly tactile as well as lightweight.
