Quorn Foods is to move away from black plastics packaging by using white and opaque recyclable PP trays from Bebo for its food range, including bestselling products such as chilled Quorn Mince and Pieces.
Bebo has worked on lightweighting the trays to add additional material savings, while also ensuring that they remain durable and provide effective product protection throughout the supply chain.
The trays were developed using the Design Circular Grading Tool to assess their
sustainability credentials. The Tool assesses packaging through a rating system based on
factors including package design, material and footprint to provide a grade of A-F in terms of sustainability.
The trays have a B rating for their environmental profile compared to the F of the previous black plastic versions. Quorn Foods hopes to eliminate more than 297 tonnes of black plastics packaging from its supply chain.
