Sustainable food packaging technology as an alternative to plastic

Project description

A new all-natural and biodegradable food tray

Food packaging is essential to preserve food quality and ensure consumer safety. For decades, the use of single-use plastics in packaging has been growing, resulting in increasing plastic waste. In fact, the packaging sector is the biggest user of plastics, and plastic packaging accounts for more than half of post-consumer plastic waste. Driven by consumer demand for more environmentally friendly products, the future of packaging is sustainable and eco-friendly. In this context, the EU-funded FRAMTID project will develop a new type of food tray that is natural and offers a wide range of working temperatures without migrating harmful substances to the food or altering its organoleptic properties. The tray is also vegetable in origin and takes 12 weeks to biodegrade.


Today’s society has embarked on a non-negotiable path: global sustainability. Every day we want to be better. We research,
innovate, change what we do and how we do it. We seek to minimise our footprint in the environment. We want to be active,
clean and committed to an environment that is kindly sheltering us. And we do it every day incorporating new customs, new
gestures and different ways of being in life. At PackBenefit we always go one step further in what we do and succeed in
shaping them with the best eco-friendly packaging in the world.
Our containers are designed to transport food and must remain fresh and healthy throughout the supply chain, regardless of
their final use. At PackBenefit we have developed this aspect by offering a solution that guarantees the safety of the
materials, i.e. the absence of toxicity and the preservation of the organoleptic properties of the food.
Today a third of all food produced worldwide is wasted, approximately 1300 million tons. At PackBenefit we know that
resources are limited and should be used more responsibly, so we have developed comprehensive packaging solutions that
enable the reduction of food waste by ensuring conservation and safety in the production chain through greater integrity in
the supply chain and storage of them.
FRAMTID trays are natural. They offer the broadest range of working temperatures on the market, without migrating harmful
substances to the food or altering its organoleptic properties and the tray does not lose rigidity when heated. On the other
hand, they are the best solution among food packaging regarding ecological impact; FRAMTID is 100% compostable.
