Croatian meat processor replaces cardboard boxes with reusable plastic boxes in production

Published: 02/02/2021

Croatian meat processor PIK Vrbovec has continuously been using innovative packaging and packaging materials and reducing CO2 emission due to lower packaging weight. For instance, reusable plastic boxes were introduced as a replacement for cardboard boxes in the production of fresh meat, and cardboard trays were implemented in the production of processed meat products.

With regards to polymer foils and bags, a project was conducted to consolidate prices, design and materials in order to generate benefits in terms of financial savings, packaging optimisation and environmental protection.
