Until now, PET jars used in Cosmetic or food markets have been supplied with standard PP closures. This can potentially lead to sorting issues once the container needs to be recycled. To prevent this issue, Frapak Packaging Group is now launching a PET closure made out of 100% (recycled) PET!
Frapak Packaging Group is now launching a PET closure made out of 100% (recycled) PET! This combines with our rPET jars to create a mono-material, 100% rPET jar and a lower carbon footprint & lower overall environmental impact.
The 70-400 rPET closure fits the complete range of PET jars from 50 to 500ml in different shapes.
The added advantage is that the lid can be transparent allowing the content of the jar to be seen from the top only adding to the product experience especially when presented on lower shelves. Having a solution with recycled materials for food packaging is a challenge, as European legislation does not allow direct contact of food with recycled materials which have not been approved by EFSA.
The new closure can be made from rPET with a full EFSA approval, allowing it to be used for food products.
Offer several benefits and are considered one of the most sustainable solutions for packaging. Here are some of the benefits:
Overall, mono-material PET jars including PET lids are considered the most sustainable solution because they are made entirely from a single material, making them easy to recycle and reducing the amount of waste generated. They are also lightweight, durable, transparent, and cost-effective, making them a popular choice for many companies looking to reduce their environmental impact and packaging costs.
This new development from the Frapak Packaging group will be on show at
Cosmoprof Bologna ( Hall 18, Stand B.16 - C.15) from the 28th of April until the 1st of May.
We invite you to come and chat with our team about this exciting, sustainable packaging development!
