LINPAC Packaging has been announced as a finalist in two categories of this year’s Plastics Industry Awards.

The packaging manufacturer, which serves the protein, bakery, foodservice, fresh produce and convenience markets, has been shortlisted in the Best Recycled Product and Best Technology Application categories for its Rfresh Elite tray for fresh meat and poultry. Winners will be announced at a black-tie event on October 24 at the London Hilton hotel.

Joanna Stephenson, Vice President Marketing and Innovation, at LINPAC Packaging said: “We are extremely pleased to have been shortlisted in these two categories.

“The innovation team at LINPAC spent two years developing and then perfecting the unique sealant for the Rfresh Elite tray to ensure we deliver a pack for our customers which ticks all the boxes on environmental credentials, product presentation, preservation and protection. It is a lightweight, 100% recyclable tray that is made almost entirely from recycled material and offers fantastic new efficiency and sustainability benefits across the supply chain.”

LINPAC Packaging is hoping to make it at least a hat-trick of awards for its tray range after it was presented with a Stationers’ Innovation Excellence Award and the Pack the Future Award earlier this year.
