Paper Packaging

Food Safe and Fit for Portion

Paper is one of the most recycled materials, and its fibres have extensive secondary uses.

Single-use paper packaging is a major contributor to reducing food waste.

It prevents cross-contamination and helps the contained food arrive intact, without breakage or spoilage, to the end user.

Single-use paper packaging can also minimise food waste through portion control and by extending shelf life. By being easily reshaped, it provides a large variety of formats at minimum costs, as opposed to to reusable packaging.

Single-use paper packaging also protects consumers from foodborne illnesses.

Single-use paper-based packaging played an important role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic.

Single-use packaging provides simple guidelines that have a higher chance of being followed by consumers than multi-use systems and contains crucial information about content, nutrition, and lifespan.

These factors mean that single-use paper packaging is efficient at cutting down on food waste.

In contrast, multiple-use packaging increases the risks of cross-contamination between humans, packaging, and food due to multi-location cleaning, sanitation, storage, and transport.
