Sustainability Company launches plastics strategy
The company plans to reduce its overall usage of packaging by 5% year on year while also increasing the percentage of recyclable packaging by 5%. The target is one of a set of goals announced by Moy Park as part of its ‘Remove, Reduce, Recycle and Research’ Strategy and is backed by a range of initiatives across the business.
The company will collaborate with academics and supply chain partners to develop sustainable packaging across its product portfolio and will also remove avoidable single-use plastic from its office and restaurants by 2020. The business will move to 100% widely recyclable rigid packaging by 2022, with all other packaging to be widely recyclable by 2025.
OPRL, the On-Pack Recycling Label scheme which aims to deliver a simple, consistent and UK-wide recycling message on retailer and brand packaging, has welcomed the announcement.
