rPET has high clarity and is perfect for visual merchandising on shelf in retail, with the added advantage of increasing shelf-life of perishable (and non-perishable) products. Transparent packaging showcases products with a high gloss, protective, and shatter-resistant packaging, and due to its’ protective properties also reduces food waste, recognised as keeping food fresher for longer.
While all PET is fully recyclable, rPET has the extra benefit of being made with recyclable material. Up to 80% of the packaging contains raw materials of recycled PET reducing the polymer and oil raw material used to manufacture.
The extra benefit is that not only is it predominately made from recycled material but it uses less energy to make an rPET tray than it does to make a virgin PET tray.
