      IMPAC-T rPET Packaging

      Recycled Plastic - Recycled Card - Separate & Recycle Again

      PFF has invested in leading-edge, innovative, thermoforming machine process technology for the manufacture of IMPAC-T packaging.

      IMPAC-T is produced from rPET – giving UK food sector industries an opportunity to switch from traditional polypropylene to circular economy packaging.

      The IMPAC-T process offers a 46% carbon footprint reduction compared to the current assembly system (independently verified by Comply Direct).

      It’s a ground-breaking, fully recyclable composite pack that is suitable for dairy and an array of other food products.

      Investment in Cutting-Edge Machine Process Technology

      It’s a momentous time for PFF, as we take delivery of cutting-edge machine process technology at our Sedgefield site. It will be used to manufacture IMPAC-T, PFF’s new circular economy food packaging concept.

      PFF’s leading-edge process technology is a breakthrough for the manufacture of food-grade packaging in the UK. As a business, we have always focused on innovation, sustainability, and creativity and this machine meets each of these traits.

      Using rPET gives industries like dairy an opportunity to switch from traditional polypropylene to circular economy packaging. IMPAC-T has the potential to revolutionise not just dairy, but all other food sectors where sealed-in freshness is essential and where reduced plastic and lower carbon footprint are sought after by their own customer base.

      PFF’s bold strategy to invest in advanced technology means that it’s win-win all round.

      IMPAC-T uses less plastic than equivalent PET packaging and makes increased use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

      The card and plastic can be easily separated by the consumer, leaving both components easy to sort for reprocessing at Home Waste Recovery Centres.

      PFF’s design and graphics studio can produce branded card wrap that makes a product truly stand out on the shelf.
