Sharp Interpack launches recycled boxes

Sharp Interpack is launching a new range of punnets made from recycled Coke bottles for next year's soft fruit season.

The SPS range also boasts ten per cent better crate fit and enhanced product visibility.

Sales director Mark Tollman said: "The soft fruit market has wide and varied packaging demands, and our punnet ranges are evolving to fit those customer needs. While providing improved product visibility, our SPS range offers greater crate fit, which ultimately means fewer trucks on the road thanks to more volume per truck-load."

The SPS range is made from 50 to 80 per cent recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate), containing approved post-consumer waste from the European waste stream. This is sourced from recycled cola and mineral water bottles that are reground, washed and approved for direct food contact.
