Huhtamaki PPL encourages collaboration towards a waste-free world!

We’ve launched Huhtamaki blueloop- a global platform that has been engaging with different stakeholders within the packaging value-chain to develop unique recyclable and compostable solutions, identify partners for viable waste-collection as well as induce awareness for recycling at industry forums.

In June, we were invited as guest speakers at a day-long seminar on “Sustainability of Polymer (Plastic) Industry, jointly organized by the Indian Chemical Council and the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Government of India. The seminar focused attention on the prevailing perception of plastic, plasticulture (agricultural applications) and packaging. Given the advantageous versatility of flexible packaging over existing alternatives in terms of sustainability, it is little wonder that the seminar unanimously agreed to waste management being more effective and practical than finding alternatives to plastic.

Supporting the optimism for creating a parallel and profitable eco-system for recycling, we informed the audience of our readiness with new age primary packaging for a host of products like coffee, hydrated soups, personal care items, jam and chocolate that could give a fillip to the recycling industry. Huhtamaki’s blueloop ambition for circular flexible packaging triggered positive after-thought and feedback at the forum.
