Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) delivers its first to market packaging for the
food service and food-to-go sector – taking expanded polypropylene into
the future with a sustainable, recyclable innovative range.
Imagine a premium packaging solution that is fully recyclable, keeps
your food hotter for longer, is microwaveable, lightweight, durable,
water resistant and resistant to acids, alkalis and hot oils - kp did!
Introducing the kp Infinity™ range. Barry Turner,
Director of Plastics & Flexible Packaging, said, “Another first from
kp as they offer a new fully recyclable packaging solution for
food-to-go that will keep food hotter for longer”.
A truly unique solution, kp Infinity™ creates
opportunity for the food service sector to meet their sustainability
commitments as well as providing a premium solution for the market and
consumer convenience. It is the next generation packaging solution given
its broader functional and sustainability credentials.
Helen Bird, Strategic Engagement Manager, WRAP commented: “It is great
to see not only innovation from kp in the development of this range, but
the rigorous process they have undergone in the material selection to
ensure they are doing the right thing. If collected for recycling, this
range will be effectively sorted from other plastics for onward
reprocessing into new products.”
kp Infinity™ is an innovative addition to kp’s
sustainability portfolio that has been proven via an independently run
Life Cycle Analysis, to be the most sustainable packaging solution that
outperforms other material solutions with significantly reduced energy
and water consumption and has a much lower carbon footprint. Made in the
UK, it is fully recyclable, meeting the packaging needs of food-to-go
outlets, and most importantly consumers.
Stuart Foster, CEO, Recoup, added: “With so much focus on plastics,
packaging and recyclability, I congratulate kp on their ongoing
innovations and leadership in this space. We have been pleased to
support the development of the kp Infinity™ packaging
range, which I am sure will be a great success. Ten years after it was
originally launched, the use of 100% recycled PET in kp trays continues
to be a great example of creating market demand for recycled plastics.”
