Q: Amidst the single-use plastic debate, do you feel the paper and corrugated packaging sectors have capitalized? Has it brought in new business to you?
David was asked this question by Packaging News and this is what he said
“I believe the corrugated sector has started to capitalize but the sector has huge opportunities in terms of the potential, for instance Soft Fruits stays fresh for up to three more days in corrugated trays. Scientific research has indicated that corrugated trays keep fruit fresher and safer than reusable plastic crates (RPCs) and can significantly reduce contamination from pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms.
Corrugated offers a more biodegradable option and will, therefore, make a massive impact from an environmental perspective.
Yes, it has created a number of new opportunities, we are currently working on many projects to provide an alternative to plastic.”
