Moy Park has launched an ambitious new campaign to tackle the use of plastics and packaging across its business and the industry.

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.
