Multi-food pots are a convenient form of takeout container that can hold a variety of foods.
Colpac’s new line of multi-food pots has a maximum of 7% plastic in the bases, so they are fully recyclable as of 2023 and beyond, under OPRL criteria.
The company has made significant investments in new equipment and processes to enable manufacture in the United Kingdom, reducing the carbon footprint of importing completed goods by using a shorter, UK-based supply chain.
The PE coating on the pot bases provides a barrier against moisture and grease, and the new range includes both printed kraft and natural kraft choices made from FSC materials.
Colpac claims that the rPET used to make the caps exceeds by a factor of two and a half the 30% recycled content standard established by the plastic packaging tax.
“With the launch of our new multi-food pots, we have produced a solution that is quality led and offers a secure supply chain,” said Kate Berry, head of marketing & product at Colpac. The new natural kraft collection has great shelf presence, is popular with eco-conscious shoppers, and is made right here in the UK.
