Lightweight rPETeCO - a multi market application

Some remarkable materials technology has been coming out of Holfeld and these will also be showcased at Fruit Logistica. Not the least  the development of r-PETeCO , a long awaited universal packaging material for a number of applications in the fresh produce, dairy, bakery, protein markets with wider use in the airline catering, games and perfumery markets.

rPETeCOis a lightweight material with a striking shelf appeal and non- plastic presentation  blended with at least 85% food grade post-consumer PET recyclate.  The material is ideally suited to the organic industry looking for a natural, textured feel and appearance enhancing a brand owner’s environmental credentials. The material is super-cleaned in Holfeld’s own plant for safe food use.


Hydrozorb H-PET - a no sweat material specifically designed for pre-packed produce

Hydrozorb H-PET is a new packaging material perfectly designed to reduce surface tension and capture condensation in pre-packed produce such as mushrooms offering improved shelf life over standard r-PET. The lightweight, low carbon material with organic and inorganic fillers is 100% recyclable in the waste - a strategically blended combination of r-PET with organic and inorganic fillers.
