Maximum recycling with our cardboard charcuterie trays
Do you want to sort properly, but you’re not sure which rubbish bag your empty packaging belongs in? We make it easy. Our recyclable charcuterie trays are mainly made of cardboard with a thin covering film. Just pull the two apart, one goes in the paper recycling, the other in the ordinary bin. Done!
Our charcuterie trays are the first in Belgium to be made from recyclable cardboard which carries the FSC label for sustainable forest management. A thin film inside avoids direct contact between the meat and the cardboard. But even with that layer, 90% of the trays are made of paper fibre. In collaboration with Fost Plus we did comprehensive tests to insure the packaging complies with all standards regarding recyclable paper waste. That means you can put it in the paper recycling at home, without the leftovers of course!
The tray is sealed by a thin transparent foil which goes into the ordinary bin and takes up hardly any room.
Better for the environment
During their entire lifecycle, from production through transport to processing, these cardboard charcuterie trays have 55% less impact on the environment.
Each year, we put 12.5 million fewer expanded polystyrene containers, or 130 fewer tonnes of plastic, into circulation. Because the cardboard trays have a smaller volume than plastic trays, they also require less transport and less storage space.
For cold cuts
We pack slices of meat from the butcher, such as ham, salami or meatloaf, in our cardboard charcuterie trays.
We will still pack our other fresh meat from the butcher in plastic trays until we have found a sustainable alternative that is resistant to the meat’s natural juices.
With this initiative, we contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
