Novolex’s latest food packaging containers for commissaries, central kitchens, retailers and other channels are recyclable and made with a minimum 10% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content.

“We are proud to add to our growing number of products manufactured with recycled content,” said Stephen Kapantais, director of technology, rigid plastics at Novolex. “Sustainability is critical to the future of our industry, and we are committed to creating even more innovative products to reduce our impact on the environment and support the circular economy.”

The four newest products made with at least 10% PCR include:
