Recyclability From One Of Our Suppliers

Friday, 26 January 2018 15:19:50 Europe/London


Propac endevours to push our suppliers and manufacturers towards our goal of " clean " packaging and we continue to pressure for devcelopment of our product range in to this area. please find below a statement from one of our suppliers.


Dear Customers,

 Due to recent discussions and media coverage regarding plastic packaging, there is a need to clearly outline the concrete actions Faerch Plast has taken towards sustainability and to clarify where we are today. 

 As a leading European manufacturer of plastic packaging for the food industry, we recognise our responsibility to address the sustainability agenda and to practice this in our daily operations. Our journey started many years ago when we began to utilise recyclable plastic in our products. For years, we have invested in innovative solutions and today, our entire business is based on principals of a circular economy. It is part of our DNA and the way we develop, design and produce innovative and high-quality packaging. We have invested to support the growth in demand and availability of recycled materials and to be able to process them to food grade safety standards.

 Recycling and Reuse of our materials

How do we embrace principals of a circular economy? The answer is simple: We ensure the reuse and recyclability of our own materials. By using mono-materials, we are able to recycle trays and surplus material in our own production, which results in a high utilisation of raw materials and a true closed loop. Our tray’s ability to be reused applies both to our own operational setup and the market. 

 Today, approximately 80% of our volume is based on recyclable materials. Our aim is to reach 100% for PET for hot and cold use within the next two years. In addition, our trays are fully migration tested and our manufacturing processes are based on 100% renewable electricity.

 We have a viable solution - and are committed to take action 

Having lacked a solution capable of identifying black plastic in the mixed waste stream, this material has been a challenge for many years. We have the systems and technology that allow black plastic trays to be sorted from mixed household waste, cleaned and used as recycled, food approved raw material. When the right infrastructure is in place, significant benefits can be achieved. We are able to ensure a true closed loop, to source raw materials locally and to obtain more than 80% recycled PET in our trays across the colour spectrum.

 However, the current UK recycling industry does not support this capability and we are dependent upon the infra-structure being in place. Making it a reality requires joint action, and we have therefore been in active dialogue with our major UK partners to drive this agenda. We are committed to support investments alongside our partners to support the capability in the UK market in 2018 to enable this stream to be fully utilised.

 We welcome and fully support the new European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy, having the clear aim to ensure 100% product recyclability across our industry.

Brexit Update

Wednesday, 8 March 2017 20:33:07 Europe/London

Brexit Update :

It is now over 6 months since the historic vote for the Uk to leave Europe.

Propac considered the possibility of a brexit prior to the referrendum even though it looked unlikely and as such we made plans to hold additional stock volumes to meet demand and cover for any issues or eventualities that may of prevailed due to a vote to  exit.

Exchange rates are still not as they were pre Brexit but Forecasts going forward predict further volatility but rest assured Propac will naturally do all we can to maintain stability and supply.
