Many of the films and packaging on food products is intended to be thrown away after use, so the Amcor Eco-Tite R recyclable shrink bag has been developed as a more eco-friendly alternative that is ready to be recycled after use.
The packaging is reported by the brand to be the first recyclable vacuum shrink bag for both fresh and processed meats, poultry and cheese. The packaging is PVDC-free and is ready to be used for shrink packaging to help extend the shelf life, reduce food waste and maintain enhanced food security.
Marketing Manager for Meat and Fresh Produce at Amcor Rosalia Rosalinova spoke on the new Amcor Eco-Tite R recyclable shrink bag saying, "Through our packaging expertise and commitment to sustainability, the team has overcome a challenge for the industry; developing a high performance shrink bag that’s PVDC-free and recyclable, while maintaining food safety. This is a great step-forward for consumers and an example of how the removal of problematic materials from packaging – something the industry is increasingly focussed on delivering – can provide us with safe, secure and recyclable packaging.”
