How do we boost the food and beverage service and convenience packaging circular economy? In some cases, we can make use of recycled materials.
To ensure their suitability for contact with food, our products must always be made of the highest quality raw material inputs. In a majority of cases, this means we must use virgin raw materials. These can and should be recycled.
As the collaboration illustrates, making that happen requires separate networks to be setup to collect these valuable resources separately before they can be recycled in specialised recycling plants.
This requires foresight and infrastructure to make it possible. It also requires the guidance to encourage consumers to participate in the separate collection.
These are some of the initiatives that make our circular economy happen. You can help us grow our circular economy by supporting increased separate collection for recycling through consumer education, investment in new collection infrastructure or in repurposing of existing infrastructure, as well as the facilitation of markets for the materials from our products once recycled, among others.
