Lightweight plastic packaging reduces fuel use in transit, keeps perishable goods fresher for longer, and is widely recycled. The correct packaging for food can extend shelf life and reduce spoilage which ultimately reduces food waste.
Eye-catching packaging gives products a vital commercial edge, and polymer technology can be key to achieving the desired look. With an increasing range of special effects available, Colloids have proven success supplying the packaging industry.
By 2025, the UK Plastics Pact aims for 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable. For brands wishing to develop biodegradable, compostable or bio-polymer materials such as sugar cane, Colloids is the partner of choice. We can help brands develop sustainable packaging solutions and we have the NIR masterbatch technology to make black plastic detectable for recycling.
