The Rfresh Elite® tray for meat and fish products by LINPAC Packaging has scooped its first award.

The LINPAC team was presented with a PackTheFuture Award, which recognises sustainability in plastic packaging, at Interpack in Dusseldorf.

Rfresh Elite claimed its award in the Ecodesign category in which judges considered factors such as recyclability, source reduction and weight reduction.

The super lightweight, mono-material Rfresh Elite tray uses a new unique, patented, sealant on the tray flange to create a secure seal with the lidding film, removing the need for the industry standard laminated PE base film and creating a crystal clear tray that is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life.

The trays are manufactured from up to 95% rPET, which has passed through LINPAC Packaging’s food grade super cleaning system, and have been developed in conjunction with the company’s Project LIFE (LIghtweighting For Excellence) initiative.

Director of Innovation at LINPAC, Alan Davey, said: “The Rfresh Elite tray offers superior efficiency and sustainability features for meat and poultry packers, and indeed helps the entire food supply chain reduce its carbon footprint and costs in handling and logistics. We are extremely pleased to have received a PackTheFuture award and hope it will be the first of many.”
