"We have obtained the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) authorisation for the Supercleaning Process, so now we can obtain finished products made using 100% recycled material that is safe and sustainable, leading to benefits in terms of energy, resource utilisation and greenhouse gas emissions," explains Infia CEO Giuseppe Montaguti.

Employing plastic made with recycled material reduces waste and is part of the circular economy concept. The plastic problem can be solved giving new life to a material that can be reused instead of being disposed of.
Bioplastic (deriving from vegetables) is not suitable to package fresh produce, while R-PET 100% (95% of which derives from the food sector) is perfect.
"We need to be able to convey this turning point, so consumers can understand the difference between purchasing produce packaged with R-PET 100% or with traditional materials. Packaging materials are just as clear and resistant but, at the same time, they are sustainable. R-PET 100% is made using only recycled material and costs much less to produce compared to traditional materials. In addition, it is safe thanks to certified recycling processes."
