Increasing foodservice packaging recycling

INCREASING THE RECYCLING OF FOODSERVICE PACKAGING – CIRCULAR ECONOMY

The FPA is undertaking a programme of collaboration between members of the foodservice packaging supply chain, taking in packaging producers and distributors, foodservice operators and caterers, local government, waste management companies and recyclers to ensure a greater proportion of the full value of used foodservice packaging is realised.

This initiative commenced with a seminar in January 2015 and will be followed up by a further meeting with the ‘supply chain’ to raise the percentage of foodservice packaging that is recovered and recycled.
